While Business Intelligence tools are traditionally read only, the amazing popularity and versatility of Xcelsius dashboards has led to some interesting applications where the dashboard is also used for data capture and input purposes.
The InfoBurst solution contains multiple plug-in connectors for the Xcelsius Designer tool including a Write Back connector. Using this write back connector, you can capture and write back information from your Xcelsius dashboard to any ODBC connected database.
Many companies are using this feature today including a manufacturing company that developed a data input dashboard for entering end of shift information , a hospital that uses a dashboard for entering and monitoring patient admissions, an education insurance company that saves unique user scenarios created in their BI dashboard that are restored for the user when they log in again.
The possibilities for write back applications with Xcelsius and InfoBurst create a whole new paradigm for business intelligence solutions.
