The Yellowfin tuna is a very attractive fish with a dark blue body, silver belly and bright yellow fins and tail. Their rear dorsal and anal fins can look like scimitars in mature adults giving them the appearance of a flying crossbow when they jump out of the water. Their body shape is sleek, powerful and built for speed and they can swim up to 50 mph enabling them to cross entire oceans.
Yellowfin BI is a totally integrated business intelligence tool that, like the fish it is named after, is very attractive and very fast. It is also starting to make some real waves in the increasingly crowded sea of business intelligence solutions.
It’s intuitive user interface both on the PC and mobile makes viewing, interaction and discovery a veritable pleasure of the senses. Whether you are navigating reports, performing drill anywhere analysis or delving into dashboards, everything is just a click or a touch to reveal the next dazzling visualization of your data. The functionality in Yellowfin BI is everything you would expect to find in a next generation BI tool – visual reporting and analysis, powerful dashboards, location intelligence , mobile BI, collaboration, alerting, a full metadata layer, comprehensive security, scheduling and publishing.
Yet what makes Yellowfin BI stand out from the other BI fish in the sea is that it is a totally integrated solution – one tool that does it all and where all the functionality works seamlessly together. After going through more than a decade of BI suites with so many overlapping tools that often compete rather than complement each other, it is a breath of fresh air to find a full function and completely integrated BI tool.
And, the best part is that Yellowfin BI is available to be purchased on an annual subscription basis inclusive of maintenance starting with a 5 user license for just $3,000 a year. You get all the functionality in just one tool for a price that everybody can afford. You can add or remove licenses incrementally as you need – incredibly simple and so logical.
This is the future of business intelligence tools – attractive, fast, simple and affordable.
InfoSol will be featuring Yellowfin BI at IBIS 2013 – www.limitlessbi.com – with a one day pre-seminar hands-on training class – see also http://infosolblog.com/yellowfin-deep-dive-at-ibis-2013-hands-on-training/ .
