Data Views for Summary and Pivot Style Analytics
Data Views are used to create cross-tab summary data including aggregates and drill-down details. Sourced from a single Dataset, Data Views provide record-level detail in a familiar spreadsheet type format. You can quickly Filter the Dataset and select specific Fields for Column display and custom formatting. You can create:
- Summary Tables and Pivot Tables
- On-the-fly groups
Summary Tables and Pivot Tables provide great ways for you to visualize data you might not typically see – leading you to uncover valuable data stories that include exposing operational issues and highlighting opportunities. With just a few clicks, Informer’s Pivot Tables and Summary Tables make it extremely quick and easy for you to aggregate and summarize information from a large Dataset to get answers to questions.
You don’t need knowledge of Excel. Just select what you want for rows and columns from the list of available Dataset fields and you’ll immediately see your aggregated results. Then have fun further exploring by selecting other field combinations and see the immediate results. See Figure 3 and 4.
To ensure data governance, Data View users only access the resulting grid and Pivot Table. They do not have direct access to the Dataset driving a Data View.
