BOARD International releases 10.1 and introduces Cognitive Technologies

BOARD 10.1 presents an all-in-one platform for Business Intelligence, Enterprise Performance Management and Predictive Analytics. Introducing cognitive technologies, this new release empowers you with fresh intelligence from existing data and actionable insights, which provide a powerful decision-making platform.

BOARD 10.1 includes the following features:

Search Generated Analytics

Search Generated Analytics enables users to perform analyses without even needing to lay a finger on the keyboard. Business users with zero technical knowledge can simply interrogate BOARD verbally and get back a machine-generated report that is automatically integrated with vocal and written narratives. The same results are achievable by typing in a question; BOARD will automatically create a pertinent report and return all the most relevant results amongst existing reports.

Story Telling

Story Telling allows users to create a personalised version of enterprise reports and save them in the form of a live presentation. The live presentation can be saved into a personal workspace or shared with individuals and workgroups, creating a virtual community working together in real-time on the same reports.

In-Context Collaboration

BOARD 10.1 strongly enhances collaboration across decision-making processes by introducing the ability for multiple users to work together in real-time on the same analysis and contextually communicate through an embedded chat.

Automated Narration

At a user’s request, BOARD 10.1 automatically generates smart descriptions of analyses and reports to highlight what is most important and interesting, both in the form of text and voice.

Cutting-Edge User Experience

BOARD 10.1 introduces a totally redesigned drag and drop UI that drastically improves the interaction with data and minimises the learning curve for business users, allowing them to easily and effectively create their own personal views of enterprise reports.

BOARD International CTO, Pietro Ferrari, describes this release as “a platform with cognitive technologies that mimic human understanding and thought processes to drastically improve the way people interact with data, making it natural and easy, like an interaction amongst humans. On a single platform and architecture, we are bridging the domains of cognitive computing with business intelligence, planning, simulation and predictive analytics, to revolutionise how business decisions can be made.”
