The security in Informer is very granular and it’s been great to be able to control access to everything down to the row level. We know exactly who has access to what data. I can send out or embed a dashboard for others to see but control at an admin level who can see and drill down into the data behind it.

Visualize Data In New Ways

When it comes to analyzing data, a picture is worth a thousand rows. Informer’s Data Visualizations are powerful tools that enable you to quickly create:

  • interactive trend and multi-series charts
  • traditional spreadsheet-style grids

Self-Service Data Discovery And Analysis

Informer enables faster access to data while providing greater control by utilizing Informer Datasets — curated subsets of your data. Datasets can be refreshed immediately when you need real-time information, or on a schedule to reduce the number of hits to your production database.

Administrative users can create and combine governed Datasets from any Datasource — separate sources, structures, or systems that include traditional database, spreadsheet, or your own Informer Workspace.

By selecting various Data Filters, you can quickly narrow down different views of the data, and save your filters for later use. Then, simply drag-and-drop to sort columns, aggregate data into relevant groups, and create cross-tab view pivot tables for summarized views. You can even add your pivot table into a Dashboard where it’s dynamically updated.

Informer Teams: A Foundation For Collaboration

Designed with the goal of organizational sharing, ownership, traceability and security, Informer Teams establishes a single source of truth for data within each of your departments, Finance, Human Resources, Development, Sales, etc. This data is governed, transparent, and traceable. Informer’s Team-based architecture ensures you can safely collaborate by sharing information within your department and organization to achieve fact-based planning and decision making.

With Teams, each of your groups can store their data in their own Dataset. By setting granular-level access privileges to prevent other groups from changing their data, they ensure data governance and confidently share their Dataset with various groups within the organization.

You can lock down specific data views and secure sensitive fields, all without limiting end users’ access to the content they need.

With Data Flows, you can easily transform data however you choose. For example:

  • Write custom scripts to transform data into exactly how you want it to appear.

Data Governance And Security

By using Teams, Informer administrators can strictly govern content to logical group members based on your organizational structure. Integrate with your LDAP/Active Directory or add members individually. Assign roles to Team members based on security levels. For example, you can allow consumer-type roles or creator-type roles to view and drill into data or access Datasources and create high level Reports.

You can also integrate your organization’s login with a secure single sign-on. It’s also easy to audit system usage and manage Report ownership on one screen.
