McLean, VA (PRWEB) March 17, 2010
Centrifuge Systems, Inc., a leading provider of next generation business intelligence software, today announced the availability of Centrifuge 1.8, the latest version of its groundbreaking data visualization technology (http://www.centrifugesystems.com).
The Centrifuge approach to data visualization brings together three innovations in analysis: Interactive Data Visualization, Unified Data Views and Collaborative Analysis to identify important insights and hidden patterns in your data. Widely used by US Government agencies in some of the most demanding applications in the world including cyber security, financial crimes, homeland defense and counter-terrorism, Interactive Analytics (IA) is gaining recognition in other industries where companies are looking to extract insights from many data sources simultaneously.
The Centrifuge approach to data visualization allows analysts to navigate from one visualization to another. Analysts "shift their lens" and pose questions by interacting directly with the pictures including various forms of charts, relationship graphs, time lines, maps, tables and geospatial visualizations.
Centrifuge 1.8 includes several significant enhancements in the area of interactive data visualization. Within charting, users can create drill charts that include many categories and measures. They can drill down to see deeper segmentation of the data. Bubble charting has also been added. Users can interact with the displays to filter the data, create new data fields and spin-off data as they uncover insights hidden in the data. One of the most powerful functions in this new release is the ability to integrate data on demand. Users can easily connect to any number of new data sources, join these sources together and expand the visualizations. In the past, this level of data integration required complex programming and long cycle times. Centrifuge has now put powerful data integration into the hands of the analyst. New country and world maps have also been added as well as a geospatial time player allowing users to map data elements by time.
"Organizations continue to deal with data explosion today. With this new release, we deliver a groundbreaking approach to data integration. The ability to bring together data from disparate sources such as enterprise databases, web services and excel files has never been easier," explains Guljit Khurana, CEO of Centrifuge. "We have also continued to expand our rich visualizations in the areas of timelines, geospatial and charting all within a 100% browser environment."
End users can use the application through a standard web browser. No client software installation is required. A free evaluation of Centrifuge is available here: http://www.centrifugesystems.com/company/tryit.php.
Centrifuge Systems is a leading provider of next generation business intelligence software that helps organizations discover insights, patterns and relationships hidden in their data. The unique Centrifuge approach to data visualization is called Interactive Analytics and brings together three innovations in analysis: Interactive Data Visualization, Unified Data Views and Collaborative Analysis. With Centrifuge, users ask open ended questions of their data by interacting with visual representations of the data directly.
Traditional business intelligence solutions require users to define what they want to see in advance and present the results in static dashboards. With Centrifuge, users determine what is of interest "on the fly", then manipulate the displays directly in a highly interactive fashion. The experience is refreshingly easy-to-use and the resulting insights can be extraordinary. Data integration has never been more flexible allowing users to join disparate data sources without any complex programming or wait times.
Centrifuge is used in some of the most demanding applications in the world, including counter-terrorism, homeland defense, cyber security and financial crimes analysis. Commercial applications of this technology include for fraud analysis, cyber security, performance management, customer relationship management, business intelligence, manufacturing analysis, clinical trials analysis and much more.
