iCHARTER is built upon a soft framework that is based on industry standard web user interfaces to allow for maximum ease of configuration. A single, elegant interface leverages existing database interfaces to enable the average user to uncover important business data embedded in their business applications quickly and efficiently. Database and browser independent, the interface integrates directly into any business application and displays from within those applications.
The iVobis iCHARTER interface contains five components per chart. These objects are independently programmed utilizing the same structure and data sets. Any of these five chart objects can be embedded in any browser object or application that supports embedded browsers. The five chart objects include a chart object, grid object, parameter menu, filter menu and an underlying data series.
Chart Object. A chart object can store multiple charts as controlled within the chart definition. Charts of different orientations and different data series can be included for instant comparison – for instance, when comparing campaign expenses with campaign responses. Multiple charts can also be set to display the same data series in different charts side-by-side.
Grid Object. The grid can be designed to include as much or as little information as is needed. Since subscription rights are data-driven, there is minimal overhead associated with administering entitlement and authentication. If no other setting is chosen, grids default to a standard setting that includes the important details from the view.
Parameters Menu. The parameters menu allows you to set the chart type, data series, compelling dates and several other conditions that affect the visual and data elements of the charts. Parameters can be as simple or intricate as desired. In many cases, the design parameters can be hidden for certain users. By limiting navigation options, the user interface becomes streamlined to fit the defined use of the charts.
Filter Menu. The filter menu controls the order, number and default settings of the categories to be viewed. The filter menu can be hidden for simpler charts or expanded to include all relevant filter criteria. In certain cases, the underlying view can be enhanced to create filters by discreet data rules.
Underlying Data Series. The underlying data series is the underlying data from the business application that will be analyzed in a desired chart. One view can serve several charts, as there are many ways to slice data within any data set. This provides uniformity across charts and simplifies the design of new charts.
