Visplore version 2022a

From now on, you can use new features such as workflow automation, interactive data reports, and simple annotations.

Visplore version 2022a is here! We are excited to introduce many new features enabling unique data communication and report automation workflows! Try it out right now and see it in action by watching the recording of our release event from September 15th below!

Creating and sharing data presentations

Starting with version 2022a, Visplore lets you easily and very quickly create interactive data presentations. Visplore not only provides you with lightning-fast insights from your data but from now on, it also allows you to organize them immediately as a presentation or report. Also, you can annotate your analyses with notes, export data projects as PDFs, or share them as interactive reports with colleagues and customers. Consume your presentations interactively – free of charge using Visplore Free as a reader.

For this purpose, any visualizations, including selections, filters, and data enhancements, can be added to a data presentation with only a few clicks. To tell your data story, you can give the pages of your presentation titles and descriptions and arrange them in any order.

How will you benefit from this? Consider the following scenario: Imagine you have to advise a client based on comprehensive data.

  • Step 1: Quickly learn about the customer’s use case, assess data quality and plausibility, and create a page for every aspect of the data you want to discuss with your customer.
  • Step 2: Go through your findings and questions based on your Visplore presentation together with your client. Like classic presentations, but interactively, you can zoom into plots, change filters, look at additional variables, and much more at any time – and right during your conversation with the client. For a better customer experience, shorter project runtimes, and more success in the project through better data understanding.
  • Step 3: Pass on essential results as annotated data presentations to your customer. They can consume your deliverable with Visplore Free without any costs and still have full interactivity as the data is embedded in compressed form – for optimal reproducibility of results and KPIs.

Visplore Professional: Live reports and report automation

With Visplore Professional, data presentations deliver even more added value: When used as live reports, they are automatically updated with the latest data from your specified data source. For example, define critical evaluations once and make them available to colleagues who access them regularly. This way, everyone benefits from the possibilities and performance without needing to learn Visplore.
Likewise, use data presentations for workflow automation – simply load new data, briefly check the report, annotate it, and export it as a PDF – done.

Annotation of graphics

Thanks to the new data presentation features, Visplore expands from an analysis tool to a communication tool for data. To this end, version 2022a introduces new features to annotate graphs. Simply place notes anywhere on graphs to help others interpret your results.
Besides data presentations, version 2022a introduces many additional long-awaited capabilities.
