Bottom Line: Board combines the features of BI and corporate performance management (CPM) into an all-in-one, programming-free solution.

Product Overview

Board combines the features of BI and corporate performance management (CPM) into an all-in-one, programming-free solution. Board takes data from various sources and stores it in a secured virtual data repository, shared and accessible by end users within the organization. The key word is “single” – users can access their data in a single interface based on a single application and a single technology.

Board offers a full complement of Business Intelligence functions, including reporting, multi-dimensional analysis, ad hoc querying and dashboarding, combined with the ability to manage and monitor all performance planning and control processes, from budgeting, planning and forecasting to profitability analysis

Providing job-specific solutions, such as Marketing, HR, Operations, and Supply Chain Management, Board can be used across all functions within any organization for more cohesion in business processes. For example, the BOARD Marketing-centric solution has a functionality that allows Finance to access information on customers and profitability.

In 2017, Board announced its 10.1 version release that involves story telling functionality and in-context collaboration. Each user creates a personalized report of the data and save them in a live presentation. Users can also collaborate on the same analysis via an embedded chat. The release also introduces the new Search Generated Analytics feature for performing an analysis search by voice. And finally, Board has redesigned its user interface that allows drag-and-drop functionality.


Board’s solution has many features including reporting and analysis, budgeting, planning, and forecasting, profitability modeling and optimization, simulation and what-if analysis, scorecarding and strategy management, and financial consolidation.
