Visualizing Data

Enhanced Designer Workflows and UI

WebFOCUS Designer now includes an integrated canvas that enables you to join data, visualize that data, and arrange your new content into an interactive page, all within a single session. Using the enhanced feature set, you can create new content in a variety of standard or custom chart types and report layouts. You can style and customize these items individually, by adding temporary fields, customizable subtotals, or contextualized links to other content items and web pages. Filter your content based on values from different fields, which are chained, so that your selections are always valid. You can even create filters based on visual elements selected on the canvas. Then transform your chart or report instantly into a page, in which you can create, rearrange, and style even more new content, seamlessly switching between chart, report, and page components.

Data Management

New Data Access Workflows

You can now access all of your data from a single, streamlined environment, which enables you to upload and modify data files or connect to various data sources, configure adapters and add or change connections. Then, easily visualize your data, use it to create content, or prepare it for future analysis.

Data Preparation Enhancements

Sources and targets are now represented by database-specific icons, and the nodes have ports that indicate when required components are missing. You can now also drag targets onto the canvas. Excel targets are supported and now are generated with a synonym. Additionally, for large data sources, in addition to generating a representative sample to improve response times when making decisions, you can create a stratified sample that will contain a row with every unique value of fields that you select. So, for example, if you have a column named State, you can ensure that every state in the data source is included in the sample.
