The new Fusion Report Designer, report creation made easy.

This is the fifth blog in a series of blogs about what’s new in Business Analyst 10.1.

In Business Analyst one of our major development focuses is to improve the user experience by making our software  more user friendly.  Another step in that direction is the new Fusion Report Designer where we have made some significant changes to the report creation process to make building custom reports easier and less time consuming.  In an effort to ease the transition from previous versions of our report editor, we thought it best to show you the changes rather than make a long list of the improvements.

To illustrate this I created a short tutorial video.

What’s New in 10.1 – Create report templates that combine your own data with standard Business Analyst data

This is the fourth blog in a series of blogs about what’s new in Business Analyst 10.1.

In earlier version of Business Analyst, the creation of reports using your own data combined with standard Business Analyst data required you to build a single Business Analyst data set (BDS) using the Custom Data Setup wizard.  In the new Fusion Report Designer, you can use two or more BDS layers to build a single report.  This enables you to more quickly and easily build custom reports since we have removed the need to combine all your data into a single BDS layer from which the report will be built upon.

To illustrate this I created a short tutorial video.

Enjoy!

Business Analyst 10.1 Performance Improvements – Really fast drivetime service areas

This is the second in a series of blogs about what’s new in Business Analyst 10.1.

Back when we released Business Analyst 10.0, I wrote a blog series where I illustrated some of the dramatic performance improvements of the Business search and data aggregation engines inside the ArcGIS extension.  You can view these blogs here:

http://blogs.esri.com/esri/arcgis/2010/09/14/putting-business-analyst-10-performance-improvements-to-the-test/

http://blogs.esri.com/esri/arcgis/2010/09/21/fast-data-aggregation/

Now that we have released the Business Analyst 10.1, I thought I would highlight one of the key performance improvements of this release.  Network Analyst drivetime service areas are dramatically faster with this release.  Much like we improved the speed of the data aggregation and reporting in the 10.0 release, drivetime service areas are 60x +++ faster with this release.  Continue reading
