    Yellowfin, leading web-based Business Intelligence software providers,
    today announced the release of Yellowfin 4.1, the next generation of
    the Yellowfin product suite.

    With more than 80 new features, Yellowfin helps organisations see and
    understand their data better than ever. New dashboard and
    visualization capabilities, along with federated queries and a host of
    improvements to spatial BI, make 4.1 ideal for rapid BI deployments.

    Glen Rabie, CEO of Yellowfin says, “Yellowfin continues to strive to
    make business intelligence easy. 4.1 is another step in that
    journey. We have made a significant amount of usability and
    functional enhancements that make Yellowfin the leader in web based BI

    Yellowfin now offers unparalleled capabilities to create analytic
    dashboards and interactive visualizations that enable people anywhere
    in an organization to track and explore their most important metrics.
    Dashboards are now more intuitive, while at the same time providing a
    greater level of analytic capability.

    “The recent changes to our dashboards are being driven by an increased
    demand for highly interactive dashboards that allow users to explore
    their data intuitively. The days of static dashboards are long gone,
    users expect to be able to slice and dice and drill into data
    effortlessly. 4.1 sets the benchmark in terms of flexibility and
    usability for creating different styles of tabs – but best of all they
    are fun to use and quickly deliver insight to the user,” says Glen

    The growing trend of Mobile BI is supported through the release of
    both a native iPhone application, and a generic mobile interface, that
    provide full featured delivery of both dashboards and reports to a
    mobile workforce.

    Unlike most BI applications for the iPhone that just post static
    reports on a mobile screen, which may be marginally helpful but
    creates a tremendously frustrating user experience, Yellowfin for the
    iPhone provides the opportunity to interact with the data. This
    allows mobile users to access to the specific answers they need.

    Federated Queries will enable users to query more than one data source
    at a time and combine the results in memory into a single report and /
    or table. This enhancement allows you to treat all your data sources
    as one virtual database and access them as a single query – enabling
    you to focus on building reports, not joining data sources.

    The latest release delivers a wide range of improvements to Spatial BI
    including: GIS layering and enabling Web Map Service (WMS) layers on
    GIS reports. Multiple condition ranges enable users to divide a range
    of results into several smaller subsets and display them clearly on
    the one chart.

    eSite is one of the first of Yellowfin’s partners to benefit from the
    enhanced GIS capabilities. “In my career I’ve used 12 or 13 different
    database/reporting systems…and I have to say that the elegance and
    practicality of the Yellowfin 4.1 design, and being totally web based,
    is just awesome compared to those systems.” Says Larry Manire, CTO of
