MDA, a process analytics provider, has announced the release of the Lavastorm Analytic Engine (LAE) 4.5, a new offering that includes significant enhancements to its visualization capabilities.
LAE 4.5 addresses the need for enterprises that require full visibility and analysis into complex and often opaque data and logic-intense business operations. LAE 4.5 extends and enhances the existing adaptive modeling capability that uses a highly visual, collaborative environment to construct analytics by assembling configured analytic nodes — versus by coding — and enabling drill-down to the atomic level of data and logic.
LAE 4.5 includes InFlow Reporting, a visual capability that gives analysts and business users fundamentally new visualization and collaboration capabilities to the analytic development and reporting process. For analytic development, InFlow Reporting allows analysts to output graphs and charts from any point in the analytic itself, enabling them to use graphical methods to make sense of highly complex analytic inputs and outputs. For reporting, InFlow Reporting also enables analysts to present results from within the analytic itself.
LAE 4.5 also extends analytic libraries to include Java and XML nodes that ease integration with external systems, includes the data pivot nodes that support data transformation, and enhances data profiling nodes used as part of drilling down to the atomic-level data.
The visualization capabilities introduced in LAE 4.5 are also available in the Lavastorm Desktop 4.5.
