IBCS® Certified Charts+Tables
BARC, the Business Application Research Center, and HICHERT+FAISST confirm, that trueChart 2018.10 has successfully passed the examination in accordance with the provisions of the IBCS® software certification process. trueChart initially was certified in July 2016, and in October 2018 BARC confirms the recertification. The visual design of the presented business charts and tables is certified to be compliant with the Standards proposed by the IBCS Association.
Here are some examples of IBCS® compliant reports, such as the templates which have been developed by HighCoordination during the certification procedure.
Time line, comments General and periodical comments complement the correctly scaled turnover progression to provide a meaningful and functional business case. Comments can be defined and linked to the dataset in any desired combination of user, language and data criterias.
Time line, multiple The multiple turnover is based on all the common known rules of IBCS. It can be sorted strictly or optimized for space usage. Space usage is optimized by the available cell structure and totals or other cases can be identified and handled separately.
Chart template 01 Dimension values are saved depending on the font size in trueChart. This enables images to scale optimal depending on the current font size.
Chart template 04 trueChart achieves a uniform language by using a central notation manual. All trueChart objects will be drawn on the basis of the current notation throughout the entire installation. Changes can be made centrally.
Chart template 11 QlikView enables us to create even complex images like this ROA tree. Due to the automatic scaling within a scaling group the absolute and relative values will be shown scaled correctly without assistance of the user.
Chart template 12 trueChart divides the given space optimally according to the waterfall values of “2012”, “2013” and „ΔPY“. This basic functionality enables comprehensible visuals even in an environment of volatile values.
Chart template 13 In trueChart any number of lines and columns using any number of value series can be combined and shown. This enables us to create images of highly condensed information like this Multiple showing the turnover per city.
Table template 01 Display of intermediate sums and totals in a table. Relative values are colored red if they exceed a fixed value.
Table template 02 Any chart types can be combined with trueChart tables, in this example bar and pin representations were used. Outliers are marked with an arrowhead.
Table template 03 Balance sheet with intermediate sum and total line. Important comments can be linked directly to the corresponding number.
Table template 04 Balance figures with intermediate sums and total lines, supplemented by a waterfall and a needle diagram. Important comments can be linked directly to the chart.
