Belmont Releases Version 2.0 of CrossGraphs Tool


CAMBRIDGE, Mass.--Belmont Research, a subsidiary of PPD, last month released CrossGraphs version 2.0, an upgraded version of its data visualization and graphical reporting software. The tool enables visualization of large quantities of complex data to discover and report patterns, trends, and relationships spanning many variables and subgroups. The company said it added more than 70 new features to support powerful exploratory data analysis and graphical reporting, including the ability to sort graphs by variable value to display prioritized data first; annotate graphs with narrative text stored in the dataset; easily determine axis limits; and navigate among graphs in multipage reports based on data values.

Chan Russell, Belmont's president, said that "by presenting data in arrays of graphs, CrossGraphs helps companies discover important relationships in their data and provides easy methods, such as printed reports or downloadable graphics files, to distribute these findings thoughout their organizations." The product is available directly from Belmont and from its reseller, IBM. Pricing starts at $795 per user for Windows and Macintosh platforms and $1,595 per user for systems running on Solaris and HP-UX.
