Data Visualization

Better decisions start with more powerful supply chain data visualization

What’s driving your biggest supply chain planning decisions? Are your stakeholders empowered to ask the tough questions of your data? And if so, can they trust the answers they receive? Answer these questions and more by using OLAP cubes to get real-time snapshots of your overall business health—and vivid depictions of what’s likely to happen next. 

Demand Solutions DSX lets your people share knowledge, find answers, and make discoveries in a social, collaborative online environment. With the supply chain data visualization capabilities of DSX, you never have to worry that your greatest insights are trapped inside mountains of data.

Use a Data Visualization Solution That Thinks the Way You Do

We’re all working in an increasingly complex global marketplace. New business problems require new kinds of solutions. But your stakeholders won’t come up with their next biggest insights if they’re constantly adapting their thought processes to conform to the way their software works.

Demand Solutions DSX provides data visualization technology, powered by QlikView, that lets users run their searches from dynamic dashboards they can access from any device. From there, they can:

  • Discover unexpected insights by navigating and interacting with your company’s data on their own terms
  • See relationships in your data, easily identifying areas for further investigation
  • Cast a wider net with direct and indirect search 
  • Find answers as quickly as they can think of questions


Technology That Saves You Time and Money

If you’ve researched supply chain data visualization platforms, you know how important it is to choose a solution that incorporates in-memory technology. In-memory processing delivers faster response times—but that doesn’t always mean a more efficient solution. Most business intelligence (BI) solutions available to manufacturers and distributors are based on queries and cubes, which means your IT team will have to hand-code all the associations in your data.

Demand Solutions DSX is different. It can save you time and money by:

  • Holding all your data in memory so that multiple users can explore it in seconds 
  • Automatically maintaining all associations in your data, so your users won’t be limited to static reports 
  • Calculating aggregations on the fly, so your users can always define the views and insights they want 
  • Compressing your data to 10 percent of its original size to minimize your hardware burden 
  • Leveraging the power of multi-processor hardware to deliver outstanding performance


Speed Your Time to Value

One of the biggest risks to a growing manufacturer or distributor is the prospect of deploying a massive analytics platform, finding it cumbersome to use, and then taking years to get adequate value from it. By contrast, Demand Solutions DSX is designed to go live quickly at a reasonable cost per user, and to remain flexible to your business needs as your company grows.

It all begins with Demand Solutions’ prebuilt templates, which work within QlikView to give your decision-makers dashboard views of your company’s key metrics. In the process, the templates jumpstart your implementation—and speed your time to achieving ROI.

With Demand Solutions DSX, there’s no need for your IT department to spend months building the dashboards and reports your business needs—your users can simply customize what’s already built into the system. Best of all, there’s no need to purchase multiple modules and go through the hassle and expense of integrating them with your supply chain management software. With DSX, the supply chain data visualization capabilities are built in.

Don’t let your next big supply chain insight go undiscovered. Find out how Demand Solutions DSX can transform your decision-making cycle into a process of discovery.
