Centreon BI 2.0 Release

This post is also available in: French

Centreon BI 2.0 breaks through the limits of the static reporting and offers a whole new report customization and data analysis feature. Rediscover your operational and business reports with web “interactive” dashboards.

Our goal: enable the “data driven decision making”, allowing you to make rational decisions based on accurate and reliable data. Centreon BI allows you to ignore the technical constraints related to data processing and the production of your key performance indicators. The software natively integrates features such as reports mass generation, publication and access control, and focuses today on the presentation and manipulation of statistics.

In order to bring a new dimension of operational data and business data analysis, a web portal allows you to customize reports and manipulate statistical data. You browse the content, refine your searches, and use drill-down navigation capabilities to identify the relevant information. Then, in real time, refresh the report on a different scope!
