Enables querying, computation, and visual analysis of single or combined data entities to instantly derive insights, and create reports or dashboards.


Guidelines for adapting the Task Flow

  • Start with a clear intent of what kind of insights users should be able to derive.

  • Organize the data points, constraints and controls in clear categories & groups which would be required to derive the analysis.

  • Try to reduce user mental effort by giving default values selected for analysis wherever possible.

  • Make selected variables / options visible if possible, to help users relate the selections to the analysis.

  • The layout should reflect these organized categories of data and controls, and should support the regeneration of insights with different controls & constraints of the user

  • Support the UI with export & save report features - users may want to save the reports or dashboard for quick access.
