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.

7. Mobilize Your Existing DataVisual KPI Tour - Next 

Visual KPI can get data, including actual values and targets, limits and even sophisticated metadata like asset hierarchy and custom attributes from just about anywhere. More importantly you can mix and match and get really creative.  Want to get your actual value from an OSIsoft PI System but your target value from SAP, Big Data or an MES system?  Want to mix internal data with external data feeds from partners or other third parties?  No problem.


No New Master Source of Data

We think your data can be put to work for you where it already lives 


Among the biggest (and most expensive) challenges of most data projects is the requirement of a new master source of data to manage and maintain. This is all too common and requires months of up-front work and years of effort once it is in place. Visual KPI was designed to let you keep your data where it makes sense for you. Our server just reads data from wherever you keep it, with no performance hit or security risk.

Here are a few of the data sources that Visual KPI can get its data from.  If you don't see yours in the list, just contact us and one of our engineers will let you know, as we add new ones frequently (like we just did with cloud IaaS monitoring for AWS and Azure).

Big Data, Historians, RDBMS, ERP, M2M, Excel

1. Data Historians / Streaming Data

Visual KPI was built for data historians like the OSIsoft PI System and others.  If you've implemented a historian and have any desire to make the data mobile, Visual KPI is the perfect front-end solution.  Here are a few of the historians we support:

2. Databases

Visual KPI can connect to almost any database, either natively or through standard interfaces like ODBC, OLEDB and OPC-XI.  Here are a few of the most common used by our customers:

  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • Microsoft Excel (local, remote or in the cloud)
  • Oracle
  • IBM DB2
  • Informix
  • MySQL
  • NoSQL
  • MongoDB
  • PostGres
  • Many others

3. Business Intelligence / Data Warehousing

Visual KPI is real-time BI, not traditional BI or data warehousing.  We are a compliment to todays most important BI systems and integrate well with them, letting you take your operational BI and analytics on the road with you.  Here are a few of the traiditional data warehouse and BI systems we support:

  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • IBM Cognos
  • Oracle Hyperion
  • SAP Business Objects
  • Tableau, Qlikview, Domo, Birst, Etc.
  • Many others

4. Manufacturing and Line-of-Business Applications

Chances are your critical data not only lives in databases, but also LOB apps like ERP, CRM, MES and supply chain systems.  Visual KPI can connect to many of these and can always get its data from the underlying database as well.  Here are a few of the systems we have connected to:

  • SAP
  • Oracle Applications
  • Microsoft Dynamics
  • NetSuite
  • SmartSignal EPI*Center and ECM
  • Many others

5. Web Services (XML, JSON, Odata)

When creating a true mobile KPI solution, no data should be off limits, and this includes external data.  Want to monitor your wind farm performance alongside weather data?  How about data center performance and HVAC along with bandwidth usage from your CDN?  What about data feeds from your supply chain partners?  All of this is possible and straightforward with Visual KPI.

6. Cloud Infrastructure (Amazon AWS, Azure, Google, OpenStack, Etc.)

Not only can we get data from today's leading IaaS vendors like Amazon CloudWatch and Microsoft Windows Azure, we can also integrate and access the metadata from these stems so as you add, remove and change assets and resources they are immediately reflected in Visual KPI. Contact us if you would like more details.

7. Microsoft Excel

In addition to enterprise data sources, we also support the most popular data source on the planet. Whether you have some KPI targets or limits in Excel that need to be combined with some historian or database data on the fly, or you just want a simple Excel table to appear on your smartphone or tablet, we've got you covered. You can access local Excel files, remote files, or even files hosted in the cloud.

8. Big Data / Internet of Things / M2M

Visual KPI is ideal for operational Big Data scenarios and with our integration server technology we can even change the configuration, grouping and metrics on the fly based on what your big data is telling you (contact us to learn more).
