FUTRIX ANALYTIC SUITE Features and Benefits
Futrix Analytic Suite provides revolutionary self-service Business Analytic (BA) capabilities and intuitive user experience to analyze data. It delivers an advanced solution able to rapidly-respond to the ever-changing information landscape far beyond traditional BI options.
Secure, Easy, Fast. Futrix provides a powerful self-service business analytic solution that empowers users to easily and quickly explore data and pursue scenarios without constraints, enabling immediate generation of answers to business challenges.
Data to Valuable Information Quickly. Futrix provides dynamic self-service analytics allowing the user to retrieve enterprise-wide data and turn it into information very quickly, even in the field with the optional Futrix Mobile application. Rapidly solve business problems with focused information and solutions using self-optimizing performance, powerful analysis and compelling visualizations.
Easy to Use Self-Service environment. Users are empowered to utilize information with minimal training and without requiring database specialists for assistance. They are not confined to pre-defined reports or structures. Users can create their own Dashboards and Viewpoints in minutes based on their immediate and unique analytic needs.
Futrix Enterprise Viewer. Provides users with an exciting user interface to provide highly interactive data visualization, including Animated Dimensions, Conductor Cells, and enhanced mapping with optional Points of Interest overlays.
Drill Anywhere. Provides unconstrained navigation within the data and dynamically across related data sources (even across different database environments). Users are not limited by rigid hierarchies and cube structures, instead they can freely analyze information based on the changing business needs. For example, users can easily analyze and drill into information brought together from Teradata, SAS, Netezza and many others, into one Viewpoint and have calculations that seamlessly combines all of these sources.
Leverages the SAS Framework. Futrix is designed to easily and transparently harness the power of SAS, no SAS knowledge is required by Futrix users or administrators.
- Broader SAS ROI – For clients actively utilizing SAS, Futrix allows the results of the SAS analytics activities to be used by a much wider audience of knowledge workers and analysts.
RAPID Time to Value. Futrix can be operational and providing value to a new client within 5 days. This time frame includes installation, user and admin training, and interactive workshops with client data producing live results. For more information refer to the Quick Start Program.
Software-as-a-Service Ready. Enables easy adoption and access to external clients for interactive reporting and analysis of their data.
UNIQUE ANALYTICAL FUNCTIONALITY
Linked Measures enable measures such as member information to be brought together from disparate data sources into a single integrated stream of analysis and comprehensive metrics. The system automatically maintains the accuracy of the merging and related Calculated Measures while enabling drill-anywhere into data for flexible analysis. For more information refer to Linked Measures.
Cohort Analysis Groups allow the user to define groups of members with similar analytical attributes and also apply these cohort analysis groups to other sources of information. For more information refer to Cohort Analysis.
Event-Based Analysis Groups specify a group based on a particular event separated from another event by a specific time interval. These Analysis Groups can also be applied to other sources of information. For more information refer to Cohort Analysis.
Aggregate Statistical Banding expands on the concept of stratified band Dimensions to incorporate a broad range of statistical group options (for example Total Values, Standard Deviation, Percentiles and Segments of Total) against any Measure for any group. This group can be freely applied to all data sources. For more information refer to Futrix 8.
Dynamic Benchmarks provide comparative analysis of both Dimension and Measure values across the entire population of data and can incorporate external sources of information for comparison as well. Also users can easily select between percentage difference and ratio difference from isolated (single or multiple) value(s) and compare them to Benchmark and/or Summary values. For more information refer to Benchmarking Measures.
Dynamic Grouping empowers the user with tremendous flexibility for categorizing information into different groupings for the analysis they are most interested in conducting. For more information refer to Dynamic Groupings.
Cross-Dimensional Calculated Measures have an ability to define Calculated Measures that can make use of values from any other dimensional measure cells relative to the current one. The functionality that this enables includes creating rolling averages and lag measures for time-sensitive and percentage growth metrics. For more information refer to Futrix 8.
Calculated Dimension Value (CDV) Referencing enables CDV's to be referenced within other CDV formulas. For example by referencing other Calculated Dimensions in addition to using conditional logic can be used to perform calculations such as "Positive Contribution %" calculations, where there is a Calculated Dimension Value (CDV) based on other CDVs and also use the Conditional IF Logic on another CDV (e.g. the difference between this year and the year before) so that it is possible to calculate the values of the "Positive Contribution %". For more information refer to Futrix 8.
If-Then-Else Logic provides for more complex formulas that allow for conditional analysis of different types and drivers for strategic, actionable measures. For more information refer to Futrix 8.
Advanced security and administrative features allows your organization to assure data confidentiality and easily manage user experiences. Privacy Drill Control provides data governors on any source of information that allow additional restrictions and data security created for sensitive data and prevents any triangulation or derivation of individual's data. For more information refer to Privacy Drill Control.
