For a detailed overview of Yellowfin 7’s key features and functions – including video, presentation
and image materials –

Rabie explained to representatives from over 120 corporations that Yellowfin 7 focused on
developing and delivering three key areas: A beautiful and intuitive user interface; a balance
between the needs of enterprise IT and Data Discovery end-users; and a brilliant analytical
experience to enable fast fact-based insight.

To support those three ambitions, Rabie said the Yellowfin 7 included five major areas of
enhancement: Improved content creation, multi-chart formatting, enriched administration, as well as
new collaborative decision-making and Mobile BI capabilities.

Mobile BI enhancements

Rabie said that the major enhancements to Yellowfin’s Mobile BI capabilities included:

      The integration of Storyboard into Yellowfin’s native iPad application
      The introduction of Yellowfin’s browse functionality into its native iPhone application
      A restyled user interface for increased navigability
      The ability to create BI content, via the browser, on any mobile device

Collaborative decision-making

Rabie said that Yellowfin 7 introduced a series of decision widgets to Timeline – Yellowfin’s
personalized Facebook-esc feed, which catalogs a users’ activities within Yellowfin in real-time –
to boost user engagement and make collaborative decision-making even easier.

“With these enhancements, we want to help engage users in the decision-making process – to bring
human experience and data together to assist our customers to make the best decisions possible,”
said Rabie.

New administration console

“A huge expense of any BI project is the ongoing cost of administration and development, rather
than software license fees,” said Rabie. “According to Gartner, BI administration and management
makes up around 70 percent of the total cost of ownership."

“With this release, we looked at how we could reduce this ongoing cost for our clients by improving
and streamlining administrative features and functionality.”
Enhanced report authoring

“Some of the biggest changes in Yellowfin 7 relate to the way in which users can author reports,”
said Rabie. “We have brought Data Discovery into Yellowfin.”

Yellowfin’s new report builder includes:

      A new interface for highly intuitive report building and ad-hoc analysis, which streamlines
       the steps required to create BI content
      An all-new content creation canvas on which any selected fields are instantaneously
       visualized, enabling users to immediately see the result of their actions and attain instant
      Enhanced formatting controls that make reporting content easier to configure for mass
       distribution, helping Yellowfin customers keep their content consistent with corporate
       styling demands
      Advanced help features that empower more people to author BI content

Rabie said that Yellowfin’s aim was to enable people of all business backgrounds to build, explore
and analyze analytic content.

Multi-chart formatting

Lastly, Rabie said that Yellowfin’s new multi-chart capability was another important addition to
Yellowfin 7’s new content creation process, “enabling end-users to create sophisticated independent

“Yellowfin 7’s multi-chart capabilities allow users to create many charts from a single dataset,
enabling fast data exploration and analysis from multiple perspectives,” said Rabie.
