New Super Graphics enable new and comprehensive insights into customer behavior, operational performance, and enable visually-centric analysis of inside spaces such as retail stores and casinos

San Diego, CA – BIS², the provider of innovative enterprise analytics software, that enables valuable business decisions to be made from massive data collections, announced today the release of the latest version, Version 3.0, of the company’s visually-centric advanced analytics software product.

“We are delighted that this latest release has already been installed and is running at a number of customer sites. Our new faster installation process means that we can get visualizations up and running by the end of the first day and start sharing them with the customer.” stated Mukesh Gordhan, BIS²’s CEO. “Rapid installation of business analytical tools and giving the power to the users to get the most out of their data is a key requirement in today’s environment.” Gordhan said.

“The new features in Version 3.0 really have our analytical team excited and we are finding new and easier ways to understand and improve our business. vizMaker has given our team the power to leverage the data in our Teradata system and to produce a new visual perspective of our data.” said Kirk Golding, Silverton Casino VP of Information Technology.

New in this release are step-by-step configuration wizards, the Compositional Super Graphic and advanced highresolution images for inside retail stores and for casino floor maps. The powerful configuration wizards (within the vizMaker product) allow users to add new data and metrics to the visualizations. In addition to the standard reports, users can now also easily create new Super Graphics using pre-built Super Graphic templates and using the new Super Graphics wizard. The Compositional Super Graphic is a new visualization type that allows organizations to easily view very complex multi-dimensional data. For example, in one single highly-interactive visualization, see customer segments, what products they purchased and from what channels. Similarly, see operating divisions in one picture with a breakdown of profitability by division and the composition of revenue and costs for each division. Normally, this takes pages and pages of reports which can now be done using one highly interactive and intuitive Super Graphic.

The vizbybis² solution is state-of-the-art, advanced analytics software that enables organizations to truly understand,analyze and act upon ever-increasing and ever-changing mountains of business data with unprecedented dimensional capacity. This unique technology enables multiple patterns in data sets, both large and small, to be easily identified. Its standards-based enterprise ready framework enables flexible deployment of the visual analytics and of the metadata.

“We are pleased to introduce the latest version of our visually centric analytics solution,” said Andrew Cardno, BIS² CTO. “BIS²’s patent-pending technology enables users to discover hard-to-find patterns in their business data, enabling them to understand the whole of the data as well as spot outliers or deep shifts in patterns. The Compositional method in particular is proving to be extremely effective in understanding very complex and highly-dimensional data. This release will enable us to provide even greater value to our customers by facilitating crucial insights that enable them to adapt to this rapidly changing world in a very timely way.” Cardno said.
