7 December, 2017: The AX4 logistics platform from Siemens subsidiary AXIT has launched two new analytics tools to help supply chain professionals obtain faster, more powerful insights into their processes. “AX4 Cockpit” and “Analytics by Tableau” make it possible for data to be easily analysed and visualised based on the criteria needed.
“These new tools let logistics professionals navigate the flood of electronic data to find exactly what they need – for both operational and strategic planning,” says Christian Wendt, Head of Marketing at AXIT.
The partnership with leading data visualization provider Tableau brings a broad data analytics portfolio to AXIT customers. Analytics by Tableau allows applying various criteria to drill down in data, compile statistics, and present insights in any number of formats: diagrams, cluster analyses, geographic maps, etc. Analytics by Tableau also allows including local files or external systems to study supply chain processes.
“Data visualization opens up entirely new opportunities for analysis and interpretation,” says Wendt. “This reveals logical interrelationships previously hidden in tables, helping you make important decisions and better manage your logistical processes.”
