Xcelsius Adds Interactive Visualization To MS SharePoint

New software from Infommersion makes it possible for IT professionals to represent new and existing information as graphical Web parts, and to see just exactly how that information will impact the rest of their businsees.

New software from Infommersion makes it possible for IT professionals to represent new and existing information as graphical Web parts, and to see just exactly how that information will impact the rest of their businsees. Infommersion debuted its Xcelsius for SharePoint at Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference today in Minneapolis. Although the software will not be available until the Fall, conference attendees were introduced to the new product, which lets companies provide their SharePoint end-users with interactive charts, graphs and dashboards. Those features were not previously possible through the SharePoint Portal Server.

The advantage to users of the software, according to Infommersion, is that they can now can select the business information they want to visualize, and customize the appearance of the resulting charts. After that's done, users can move ahead and perform visual "what-if" analyses on the underlying assumptions. In that way, the impact of a hypothetical business change can be seen on screen immediately.

Xcelsius for SharePoint is scheduled for release in September 2005. Pricing and licensing information have not yet been announced.
