BOARD 10.1 brings business into the Cognitive Space

20th March 2017

BOARD International, a supplier of Decision Making software for enterprises, has announced availability of BOARD 10.1, the new release of its all-in-one platform for Business Intelligence, Enterprise Performance Management and Predictive Analytics.




"In BOARD 10.1 we are enhancing the platform with cognitive technologies that mimic human understanding and thought processes" said BOARD International CTO Pietro Ferrari.

"This way the new BOARD version drastically improves the way people interact with data, making it natural and easy, like an interaction amongst humans. On a single platform and architecture, we are bridging the domains of cognitive computing with business intelligence, planning, simulation and predictive analytics to revolutionize how business decisions can be made."

The new release features a new Search Generated Analytics which enables business users with zero technical knowledge to interrogate BOARD verbally and get back a machine-generated report that is automatically integrated with vocal and written narratives.

New story-telling functionality allows users to create a personalized version of enterprise reports and save them in the form of a live presentation.  This can then be saved into a personal workspace or shared with individuals and workgroups, creating a virtual community working together in real time on the same reports.

BOARD 10.1 also enhances collaboration across the decision-making processes by introducing the ability for multiple users to work together in real time on the same analysis and to contextually communicate through an embedded chat.

At a user’s request, BOARD 10.1 automatically generates smart descriptions of analyses and reports to highlight what is most important and interesting, both in the form of text and voice.  

BOARD 10.1 introduces a totally redesigned drag and drop UI that they believe will drastically improves the interaction with data and minimizes the learning curve for business users, allowing them to easily and effectively create their own personal views of enterprise reports.
