Dundas Chart & Gauge for Sharepoint Version 1.5 now shipping

New Releases Of Advanced Charting And Gauge Software Helps Create Feature-Rich Collaborative Dashboard Applications

December 5, 2007 (Toronto) - After a highly successful beta run, Dundas Data Visualization today announced the latest release of Dundas Chart for SharePoint v1.5, the most advanced charting component designed specifically for Microsoft's SharePoint portal technology. The company also released an updated and enhanced Dundas Gauge for SharePoint v1.5.

"With these two pioneering Web Parts, you now have all you need to turn your collaborative portals into visually appealing dashboards and scorecards - quickly and easily," said Dundas President Troy Marchand. "With powerful charts and an assortment of gauges and dials, you can dramatically visualize your KPIs and other key corporate data within your own portal, all without relying on tools like Visual Studio."

With version 1.5 of each product, data binding becomes much easier, automatic and more streamlined, since they now offer the ability to retrieve data directly from the SharePoint site list collections. In addition, by simplifying the code required to implement callbacks to a simple checkbox, v1.5 lets you quickly enable a real-time behavior within SharePoint 2007.

And other highlights specific to Dundas Chart include the ability to automatically apply advanced financial and statistical formulas within the SharePoint design user interface, plus the capability to provide data to any other SharePoint Web Part, including Dundas Gauge for SharePoint.

SharePoint is a web-based collaboration and document-management environment developed by Microsoft to organize corporate data and provide a structure to otherwise dissimilar data. Dundas Chart for SharePoint allows you to add highly customizable, stunning charts to your SharePoint portal, while Dundas Gauge for SharePoint lets you add easy-to-interpret gauges, dials and knobs to display data that simply can't be shown effectively in a chart.

"Regardless of whether you are implementing charts or gauges for internal projects or building data visualization applications for clients, we believe Dundas's SharePoint products provide the most advanced digital dashboard tools for the SharePoint environment," added Marchand.
