BiLog: Indecisiveness...Maximo BI Packs


I can’t decide.   Some days I want a pie.  Other days, I only want a bar.

The new Maximo BI Workspaces are perfect for my indecisiveness.  I can change the display of the metrics from a pie, to a bar or from a wide range of other graph types.  Using the Work Order Metrics by Classification workspace as an example, I initially view the Backlog work order metric in column format.  


This column format is very clear, but I want to re-structure this metric so I can view the data differently.  Within the metrics or widgets toolbar, I simply select ‘Change Display Type’ and I’m presented with a variety of display options to choose from.  I quickly select line and 3D graph type.







Within a matter of minutes, I can view my Work Order Backlog metric in a variety of formats.  The wide variety of display options available provide incredible insight and visualization capabilities into the Maximo data sets.  



I still can't decide which format I like best.   To help you determine which you like best, you can view this functionality in a variety of recorded demos which are available here.
The demo recordings include a 7 minute demo on 'Customizing your Workspaces' using the various graph options with the features noted here.

What graph will you choose?
