Unlock Your Data’s Potential with Powerful, Clear, and Easy-to-Create Charts

Data Visualization: Charts

Images such as charts bring your data to life. Orbit Reporting and Analytics makes it easy for you to create interactive charts, graphs, maps, and other visuals that give you a clear picture of your business.

Humans are more likely to remember images than text.

In fact, 65% of people are visual learners. But, your operational reports likely contain many pages of rows and columns of numbers and text that aren’t friendly to visual learners.

When you use charts to tell your data’s story, you can make complex data easy to interpret.

However, creating meaningful charts is often a painful process. Most reporting tools won’t integrate with all of your data sources—leaving you with partial answers to your questions. To get a clearer picture, you may resort to exporting your reports to Microsoft Excel and then merging data from additional sources. This manual work is not only time-consuming but can lead to errors that negatively affect your decisions.

Also, many legacy reporting tools make it hard for you to interpret your data. For example, they might not let you drill down for more information or create multiple visuals from the same data set.

Clearly Visualize Your Data

Every set of data can tell a different story, so you must have the control and flexibility to pair the right information with the right visuals. Orbit provides a variety of charts to suit all of your reporting needs.

Orbit's charts range from simple tables to complex combination graphs – that you can easily customize.

Do you need to display your data in multiple formats to suit individual use cases or preferences? With a single click, you can switch the visual to represent your data.

For example, if you are analyzing data, you may wish to try multiple views as you synthesize the key takeaways. If you share a chart or dashboard with others, you may choose different visuals based on their needs and personal preferences.

Drill Down Into Your Data

Orbit integrates data from across your company so that you can dive deep into your analytics. With just a few clicks, you can create interactive charts that aggregate data from your ERP, financial systems, HR software, CRM, marketing automation applications, and other data sources.

Orbit also makes it easy to drill down into any data set. For example, you may initially want to view your data in a chart at a summary level. Then, as you identify trends, patterns, or anomalies, you can quickly drill down into the details. In seconds, Orbit takes you from analyzing trends over several years to examining a specific week.

Quickly, Easily Create Charts and Other Visuals

Data visualization helps you interpret complex information rapidly. But to do this, you need a reporting tool that makes it easy to create visuals.

With Orbit, you can organize your data into visuals in just minutes. Orbit’s drag-and-drop interface lets you choose the columns and rows you want to display in your visual, so you can instantly produce a chart or graph.

You also have complete control over how you arrange your data. For example, you can organize numerical data by average, sum, count, max, and min. Similarly, you can group date-driven data by years, quarters, and months.

Harness the Power of Geospatial and Location Intelligence

Location and spatial data are part of most data sets and can affect the quality of your reporting insights. In particular, geospatial relationships can help you add visual context to the story your data tells you.

Orbit allows you to visualize location-based and geographically-referenced data, along with its relationship with your other business data. With Orbit, you can combine geospatial and location-related data from multiple applications, and layer this information onto maps and 3D visualizations. This gives you a clear picture that helps you depict relationships from both geographic and time-context analytics, so you can quickly spot business problems and opportunities.
