Yellowfin Introduces Platform Updates that Connect People to Their Data

Yellowfin is releasing an updated version of its namesake platform, enhancing the business analytics workflow, API connectors, and forecasting.

"Yellowfin 7.2 is a modern BI platform that connects people and their data," said Yellowfin co-Founder and CEO, Glen Rabie. "The unique Business Workflow framework in Yellowfin 7.2 empowers business users and data analysts to work collaboratively to produce better business insights. Crucially, it also enables the entire data-driven decision-making process to take place in the BI platform - where it belongs."

The Yellowfin Business Workflow provides a clear path and process for business users to directly connect with the BI and data experts in their organization, to raise trackable tasks and data quality issues, brainstorm ideas, collectively review content and take better, faster data-driven action.

The update allows Yellowfin Business Workflow to deliver a unique collaborative method of improving task management and analytic workflow in order to connect business users with business analysts.

The new API connectors in Yellowfin 7.2 make data more accessible by including an 'open' connector framework, enabling clients to quickly and easily build custom connectors for any third-party Web application.

Additionally, Yellowfin 7.2 will ship with a range of API connectors out-of-the-box, including pre-built reports and dashboards, for applications such as Salesforce, Xero, Google Analytics, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube and more.

Additionally the platform upgrade enhances predictive analytics capabilities with new forecasting and trend analysis abilities.

New forecasting capabilities offer enhanced flexibility, allowing users to set the parameters used to create a model, which enables faster and more accurate forecasting.

Changes to trend analysis allow users to easily plot the relationship between two variables on a chart to instantly identify a trend.

Users can also now automatically plot an average value on a chart by simply selecting to show an average for a particular metric.
