Yellowfin Launches DashXML to Make Building Custom Analytical Apps Quick and Easy

yellowfin-biGlobal Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics software vendor, Yellowfin, has launched DashXML – a browser-based Java application that makes it fast and easy to create customized analytical functionality and applications. The DashXML framework provides a method for creating uniquely tailored dashboards that combine Yellowfin content and custom items without the need for programming. DashXML is a flexible framework that communicates with Yellowfin via a Web Services API to expose the functionality of Yellowfin’s BI platform – such as reports, filters and security capabilities – while simultaneously providing complete freedom regarding application design, layout and user interaction.

Creating highly customized analytical functionality and applications has always been difficult. Application managers and developers had two choices.  Firstly, they could simply use an out-of-the-box BI tool, which limited their control over product design and user interaction. Alternatively, they used Open Source charting libraries to create a tailored charting experience, but lost the analytical functionality and security of an analytics platform, such as Yellowfin. The first option meant compromising on the uniqueness of the user experience, while the second required significant development work, resulting in lost time and money.

DashXML offers application developers the freedom to quickly and easily create bespoke analytical functionality without compromise.  DashXML then delivers Yellowfin customers and software partners a unique analytical user experience. The tailored reporting and analytics functionality, developed via DashXML, gives Yellowfin clients and software partners the ability to expose new audiences to the power of BI, growing the potential number of BI users and use cases.
