Following chart types are available in Enterprise Studio:



Bubble chart

Bubble charts are commonly used for displaying and comparing numerical values. The individual values of the data series are displayed in bubbles. A bubble chart has four dimensions: the x-axis and y-axis (value axes), the bubble size, and bubble color. The bubble size and bubble color are optional dimensions.

The x and y values are combined in bubbles and displayed in the chart. Each individual value in the data set (each bubble in the chart), gets assigned its own color.

Line chart

With a line chart you can display continuous data over a predetermined time period, on an axis with a regular scale. They are a great way to display numerical data. Line charts are particularly useful for expressing changes in different categories of data.

A line diagram has two dimensions (x and y). The data categories are distributed equally across the horizontal axis, and all value data (series) is distributed evenly along the vertical axis.

The y-axis can be set by selecting an attribute or metric that is a list with numerical values. Usually lists are realized using a script, but timed values are also very suitable to use. The x-axis is automatically set, based on the number of list values available on the objects in the chart. The data category that must be displayed along the x-axis - reals, dates or strings - can be set at the chart definition settings.

Performance meter

The performance meter is a suitable chart to compare current data with targets. You can use it to visualize the performance level of objects. You decide in which performance level (=color in the meter) an object should be by defining value ranges for the performance levels that cover the attribute values of the objects. One dimension is set for the performance.

Spider chart

A spider chart (or radar chart) is a good solution to present one or more variables in a two-dimensional chart, with an axis for each variable. All data points in a data series are connected together along each axis with a line. At least three and at the most five dimensions are set.

Score chart

With the score chart you can present the score for a given data. The score chart shows a single value. It can be an amount, but also a number or a text expressing a value. When using the score chart for the purpose of portfolio management, it is possible to present an aggregated value from a whole population in the chart.

Bar chart

Bar charts are a convenient way to visualize one or more data categories, especially if each category contains subcategories. The categories are usually placed along the horizontal axis (the category axis), and the values along the vertical axis (the value axis). The values can be displayed grouped or stacked, and in vertical or horizontal bars.


Bar chart

Pie chart

Pie charts are suitable for displaying data from one data series. A pie chart shows the size of the items in one data series, proportional to the sum of the items. The individual values in a pie chart are displayed as a percentage of the whole pie. In a pie chart one dimension is set.

Table

The data you have selected is presented in a table. A table can be used for displaying different types of data. In a table, one or more dimensions are set. The first column in a table is always the "Object" column. This column contains the names of the objects from the selected population. The following columns contain the selected dimensions.

Traffic light

With a traffic light you can visualize the performance level of a single object. You decide in which performance level (=color of the traffic light) the object should be by defining a value range for the three performance levels that cover the attribute value of the object. In a traffic light one dimension is set for the performance. When using the traffic light for the benefit of portfolio management, it is possible to present an aggregated value from a whole population in the chart.

Matrix chart

A matrix chart can be used for representing relationships among objects. The chart supports different matrix types: cross-relation, cross-relation property, intermediate object, and intermediate object property. All populations can be set separately.
