InfoBurst Dash Technical Information:

Dashboard Data Management

InfoBurst includes a robust toolset for managing and delivering data to SAP Dashboards/Xcelsius. Dashboard data can be cached from a variety of data sources. The XML Data Cache (XDC) is then made available to the dashboard using a variety of customer dashboard connectors. Use of the XDC can significantly shorten the dashboard design process and greatly improve dashboard response times.

Cache

Dashboard data can be sourced from:

  • Web Intelligence
  • Direct data queries or execution of stored procedures
  • Excel

A single XML Data Cache can contain multiple data sources of varying types. The XDC includes options to arrange data in crosstab format and aggregate the data using various calculations. The cache can then be scheduled for regular refresh. A single cache can feed multiple dashboards and a single dashboard can consume multiple caches.

Cache Query

The cache can be further manipulated using the power of SQL. A cache query can be used to parse large caches and feed to a dashboard only the data required based on a view or selection by a dashboard consumer. A single cache can support multiple cache queries, each returning different subsets of data for various applications in a dashboard.

Dashboard Connectors

InfoBurst includes a variety of dashboard connector components. These connectors allow the dashboard designer to access the cache in various ways and add value to the dashboard by leveraging other connector options like database writeback and real-time database read. InfoBurst dashboard connectors are BI Mobile-compatible (BI4.1+).

  • Cache Connector: Consume one or more caches from a dashboard. Can be used to consume cache data in a connected dashboard or automatically embed data for a disconnected dashboard.
  • Cache Query Connector: Execute one or more pre-defined SQL queries against a cache and deliver the resulting data to a dashboard.
  • Database Writeback Connector: Capture dashboard consumer input or component interactions and write the information back to any database table.
  • Database Query Connector: Execute real-time database queries and deliver the resulting data to a dashboard.
  • Save As Excel Connector: Enable dashboard consumers to save data from one or more dashboard components to Excel.
  • Crosstab Flip Connector: Enables the dashboard designer to flip the axis of existing crosstabs of data on the fly and make the new data available to other dashboard components.
  • Crosstab Builder Connector: Enables the dashboard designer to create crosstabs of data on the fly using existing caches.

Cache Security

The XML Data Cache can be secured to ensure only authorized dashboard consumers can view cache data. Cache security can also be used to serve personalized data to a dashboard based on the consumer’s identity.

Dashboard Delivery

A SWF file published from Xcelsius can be delivered to a variety of destinations in both connected and disconnected modes.

Destinations

A connected dashboard can be delivered to the following destinations:

  • Email
  • FTP
  • Network Share
  • SharePoint
  • WebDAV Folder
  • XI Server

Offline Delivery

A dashboard data source can be burst to produce unique subsets of data within the cache. These unique data sets can then be embedded in the dashboard (.swf). Each recipient receives an offline dashboard with personalized data.

Mobile Delivery

Package dashboards for native consumption on iOS and Android mobile devices.
