SAN FRANCISCO: NetSuite has announced it is to revamp the user interface (UI) of the data dashboards within its products to present information to customers in a more complete and easy-to-digest layout.
Chief technology officer Evan Goldberg said the firm would carry out the overhaul at the its SuiteWorld event. But customers will have to wait until 2013 before the new layouts were rolled out, he added.
Nevertheless, he previewed several new examples of the way in which data would be displayed in a more "efficient and professional" way. These include new types of charts which will offer larger, more colourful graphics.
He said the update would also incorporate the ability for users to hover over specific points on the charts to gain insights into data from a specific date or incident, and to make the information more presentable on mobile devices, particularly tablets, in response to their widespread use among enterprises.
"We want to give our data dashboards a more modern look and feel, so users can see both the overall highlights of their key performance indicators, but also drill down into the detail of this data as well, which we call ‘Detail on Demand'," he said.
Goldberg also revealed a new alert function that provide information as it happens to the user on issues that need to be addressed, orders that are being processed and other requirements within the system.
