Personalization through Overlays in Reporting

Pyramid lets users customize and personalize the labels of value metrics and hierarchies for a given data model. These customizations can be set for all sessions (present and future) or to a specific report without affecting other users, breaking the functionality of the underlying data model, or compromising the enterprise-wide governance and security features required Read more…

Data-Driven Formatting

Static data format masks, used to format values in analytics) is a standard feature in most BI applications. However, data-driven formats, which change formats per value item, are anything but standard. Pyramid provides data-driven formatting using labels like currency and numeric units. This is a critical capability when the same metric has values with different Read more…

Removing the Confusion from Interactive Charts

Pyramid’s persistent color feature maintains the same color in all visualizations for selected data elements, even after slicing or removing items from a chart. Analysts often use specific colors to identify distinct hierarchies or measures in visualizations. Predetermined colors can be explicitly selected per hierarchy or measure, but this can be an arduous task when Read more…

Parent-Child Hierarchies and Role-Based Security

Pyramid offers flexible, intuitive security for parent-child hierarchies, providing role-based control over how members are viewed and aggregated within hierarchies. Implementing parent-child hierarchies has long been an Achilles’ heel in most BI tools from query design, processing, structure, to rendering of the hierarchy in a lucid, coherent fashion. If this wasn’t enough of a headache, applying member-level Read more…

Parent-Child Hierarchies Made Easy

Pyramid excels in its’ native support for parent-child hierarchies, automatically generating hierarchical structures and providing fluid, intuitive reporting. Parent-child hierarchies are used to depict the hierarchical, iterative relationship between all members that appear in the same table, enabling a graphic portrayal of the relationships and facilitating the aggregation of all members according to the hierarchical structure.

Subtotals Made Easy with Pyramid 2020.20

Pyramid provides users flexibility over how to apply subtotals in a multi-dimensional matrix grid—using a simple point and click interface. Adding subtotals to a table or grid enables users to quickly grasp values per dimension or hierarchy. Subtotal functions are often toggle switches that provide subtotaling for either all dimensions or none. This can result in displaying unnecessary Read more…
