Real-Time Dashboards & Alerts

Smartphones | Tablets | Web Browsers | PC & Mac | More

Visual KPI reads multiple data sources in real-time (big data, historians, databases, manual data, web services and more) and adds context with KPIs, groups/hierarchy, alerts, and geolocation. It gets your critical data in the hands of more users without extensive training and it can be deployed in days, not months. Want to see how we do it?

What is it?

Visual KPI is mobile dashboard software for any device. It reads existing data sources and delivers KPIs, scorecards, analytics and alerts in real-time.

Who uses it?

Decision makers. Operations. Remote workers. Data Junkies. Anyone who values knowing what's happening right now, regardless of their device.

Why use it?

Mobility is no longer optional. Visual KPI presents problems and opportunities before it's too late. Oh, and there's no six-month project that "might" pay off.

Support FAQ > Security > Can we secure individual parts of Visual KPI so users or groups can only see specific items when they access the application?

Search the FAQ for entries containing:

Yes!  Visual KPI has object-level security, so you can choose the security model and level of security detail that best works for you.

Security in Visual KPI uses standard Microsoft Active Directory and/or local Server Groups and Users.

Each object (e.g. Groups, KPIs, Values, Trends, Etc.) in Visual KPI can have its visibility restricted based on any combination of these local and Domain users and groups. You simply put each group which is ALLOWED to see an object in the Access Group List field separated by semi-colons:

Name Access Group List
KPI xyz DomainName\DomainGroup; ServerName\LocalGroup;

For example, if the domain name is ALPHA and the server on which Visual KPI is running is named SERVER, this might look like:

Name Access Group List
KPI xyz ALPHA\Domain Admins; ALPHA\Unit One Users; ALPHA\Bob Weldon; SERVER\Administrators; SERVER\Jimmy

This combination gives 2 Domain groups and 1 Local group access plus grants access to Domain User Bob and local user Jimmy

Group Name Access Group List
-- Home -- Everyone
Site One ALPHA\Domain Admins; ALPHA\Unit One Users

This combination ensures that EVERYONE can see the home page, but only a person in one of the 2 Domain groups can see the contents

When configuring this, please remember to FIRST disable the Permissions inheritance on both Interfaces and Webservices applications from the Visual KPI instance name. This is essential. After doing this, simply disable Anonymous access on the Visual KPI instance application in the Authentication section of IIS, then enable Object Level Security in the Visual KPI Designer.

As always, please let us know if you have any questions. We would be happy to cover this on a phone call/web meeting at your convenience.
