Project Crescent

IPL has been fortunate enough to work with Denali on a real project recently, and we’re including ‘Project Crescent’ in the set of BI tools in use. I’ve recently had a chance to play with Crescent, and I have to say I’m very pleased with it.

It really is very impressive- as an end user, you can easily create highly interactive explorations/visualisations of data, with multiple charts all linked to each other, filterable in a couple of different neat ways. And the ability to create moving bubble charts is a great addition.

In CTP3 your options for exporting the end result are (very) limited, but it is not yet feature complete so there are likely to be improvements here before RTM. Give it a try by downloading the free CTP- if you don’t like it, you get your money back!
