Many organizations now provide Web-enabled interfaces to their data. Typically, the core data is returned in text-based reports which are time consuming to process. Using iXv, organizations can connect visualization technology to data sources, enabling users to visualize this data using IBM i2 iXv Viewer.
With iXv Viewer users can instantly visualize data in a chart format which depicts entities of interest and the connections between them. In this intuitive format, users can more easily navigate data and quickly see relationships that might be overlooked in text-based or tabular reports.
When organizations add iXv to their data sources, users can more efficiently and effectively process information. This increases overall productivity and the value of existing data sources.
IBM i2 iXv SDK™ provides a set of development tools and full documentation allowing organizations to quickly deploy IBM i2's visualization technology.
iXv SDK is designed to be server platform and operating system independent, so it can be deployed within an existing server environment. It provides a visualization layer which works with your organization's existing business logic, meaning current mechanisms such as search, login and deployment technologies remain intact. This approach allows you to add a productivity-enhancing visualization technology with little or no impact to previous IT investment decisions.
Share information instantly - iXv SDK enables your users to visualize retrieved data in a Web page that can be made available to thousands of users instantly, giving more of your organization the ability to visualize your data.
Make sense of retrieved data quickly - Even structured data can be complex, making it difficult to understand and time consuming to process. The iXv SDK enables search results to be viewed in a visual format so relationships, trends and connections in the data can be discovered instantly. This enables your users to analyze more data than they could in a written format.
Drill down and explore the data source visually - The iXv Viewer retains connections to the underlying data sources, meaning users can drill down and explore the source visually. By 'expanding' any entity on the chart, all linked entities are retrieved from the database and added to the chart.
Integration with i2 Analyst's Notebook product family - Data viewed in the iXv Viewer can be transferred into the desktop applications of the Analyst's Notebook family, where more detailed analysis can be carried out. The chart items retain their connections to the underlying data sources, allowing users to continue exploring the data visually.
Give data sources visualization capabilities with minimal resources or requirements - iXv technology is completely platform and operating system independent, so it can be deployed within your existing server environment.
Visualize data without changing your existing business logic - The iXv SDK provides a visualization layer which works with your organization's existing business logic, meaning existing mechanisms such as search and login remain intact and deployment technology decisions are unaffected.
