By means of a double column chart with legends attached on both sides structural changes over time can be easily represented. The chart shown is based on a prototype for the representation of project financing structures in consulting businesses.
Structural representation with deviation analysis
The following chart was produced with the ‘Chart-me’ software. It is based on a single column-type chart with a 24 period grid. This application suits very fine for quarterly based previous year comparisons for example of holdings showing the totals and the numbers of the most important business units.
ROI-tree integrated into ‘Palo’ application
The ROI-tree was developed with ‘Chart-me’ and is part of the functionality of the reporting and financial planning system of a mid-sized industrial company. The application is based on the ‘Palo’ olap-database from Jedox and helps management on the elaboration and control of their monthly accounting closure process as well as preparation of tables and graphs for the report production. The graphs are designed in Excel and with ‘Chart-me’.
A big number of the local stock-quoted companies prefer pie charts and all of their sub-types for the representation of prior year comparisons in their business reports. Both ‘before and after’ examples show how readability can be greatly improved by using simple bar graphs rather than eccentric ‘Planet representations’.
