Yellowfin, an analytics vendor, announced the release of Yellowfin 9 which introduces an incredibly flexible action-based dashboard builder and progressive data storytelling capabilities that advance the capability of the dashboard experience. This ground-breaking release also powers enhancements to the reimagined Yellowfin Mobile App and rolls out Yellowfin Present (formerly Storyboard), an advanced secure presentation tool. 

By focusing on how organizations can extract more value from their data and addressing the needs of the business users, designers and developers, the new release redefines the analytics experience, offering features designed to make BI more accessible, engaging and actionable. 

This is evident immediately in the upgraded dashboard capability. Analysts, developers, and designers now have an advanced analytics platform in which to collaborate, build and functionally extend dashboards to create a seamless experience connecting insight discovery to actions. 

New features include: 

  • A free-form Dashboard Canvas with pixel perfect design control, enabling the creation of visually stunning dashboards that can be easily integrated into applications or aligned with a corporate design theme. 
  • The introduction of Code Mode for Dashboard giving dashboard builders and software developers the ability to integrate actions and extend the capability of their dashboards using familiar coding languages.  

Yellowfin 9 also includes the release of Yellowfin Present, strengthening Yellowfin’s commitment to the needs of the business user through data storytelling. Business users can easily create compelling, data-rich presentations that combine reports, charts, text, shapes, video, and images within the security of a governed information architecture. 

Finally, this latest version sees the official release of the new mobile app. Designed with the data consumer in mind, the app provides a unique yet familiar experience for users and finally addresses the underlying challenge of delivering a BI experience on the go. Leaving dashboards behind, users are notified of real-time changes in their data through Yellowfin Signals and can now read and understand insights with Yellowfin Stories.
