Platfora sounds like the obvious BI and UI engine to power something like Claspin for those who don’t have the luxury of developing something like Claspin from scratch…
Based on what I saw in a demonstration, Platfora’s HTML5 canvas rendering makes the process as visually rich as it is fast in terms of processing speed. You can highlight a portion of a graph and drill down into just the data points included in that zone, and then drill down even further or just start a whole new analysis using the smaller data set as a the starting point. Using concepts from the “grammar of graphics,” Platfora VP of of Products and Marketing Peter Schlampp said users can create just about any type of visualization they can imagine.
