SAP Visual Intelligence is a new product from SAP AG introduced earlier this year as a standalone installed application which produces crisp, detailed visualizations using charts. The specific goal is to provide business owners and business-centric users the ability to create and deliver visualizations, enabling them to present their business information quickly.
Visual Intelligence users can by-pass traditional IT using full client reporting tools like SAP BusinessObjects, Web Intelligence or SAP Crystal Reports and reduce the time of the development cycle.
In the age of the smartphone, mobile reporting is the future of Business Intelligence. And in BusinessObjects 4.0, SAP is making a strong push to provide a more complete mobile experience.

Business Intelligence provides sales and marketing teams with information and insights they need on customers, prospects, markets and competitors. With powerful dashboards, analytical and reporting solutions sales and marketing teams are able to better and more accurately track, monitor and analyze every aspect of a sales cycle. BI makes it easier to identify cross-selling opportunities, locate profitable customers, tracking competitors, and to create strategies to successfully reach sales quotas and revenue goals. With the addition of RangeFinder, you can make it even easier to visualize how your company is doing compared to historical data as well as your competitors to make educated and informed decisions that may enhance your companies future.
Manufacturing includes all of the processes needed to convert raw materials or components into finished goods, especially with the use of industrial machines and on a larger scale.

With the release of our first Xcelsius/Dashboard Design Add-on component, we decided to put together a multiple part series of blog posts that could showcase how RangeFinder can be utilized within specific business sectors. The first edition of the series is taking aim at the insurance industry and which KPI’s can be visualized by RangeFinder to provide exceptional value to end users.
