Izenda 6.9 Update Simplifies Dashboard Customization in Business Intelligence & Analytics


ATLANTA, GA (PRWEB) June 03, 2015

Izenda version 6.9 makes dashboard design and view customization easy for users with its controls all in one place, enhancing the control and functionality of Izendas embedded, self-service business intelligence and analytics platform. Izendas industry leading platform delivers ad-hoc reports and dashboards, data visualizations and forms.

This latest update provides the most seamlessly embedded and user-friendly BI and analytics platform in which customizing dashboards has never been easier.

Most tools on the market have distinct dashboard designers and viewers often on separate servers or on a desktop. Izenda has both design and view in one place and with this update continues to improve the platforms usability for technical as well as non-technical users. Dashboard tiles can be dragged and dropped and also resized on the fly. Theres no limit to the number of tiles that can be added to dashboards.

A new Auto Gauge feature empowers users to create and customize dashboards that provide clear analytical call-outs to other users informing them of the need to take action or dive deeper into the source data behind the KPI. Izendas core features already provide real-time data reporting and exploration capabilities. Users who are alerted by a dashboard call-out can immediately access the information they need to make a data driven decision in the host application.

Sharing and scheduling in the dashboard viewer/designer continues to enhance Izendas ability for users to tell stories from the real-time data. By leveraging data in a slide show format, each user can more easily collaborate with others as they make data-driven decisions inside the application they use every day.

With this latest feature, Izenda improves the ability users have to share the stories that their organizations data tells them to make the best business decisions in real time, said Lee Nagel, Izenda VP of Marketing.

Enhancements to the Data Sources functionality allows more analytical users to create a report with complex calculations and expressions and save it as a data source. This allows other users to leverage these virtual views to build reports and dashboards, layers of calculations and what-if scenarios. Also it permits users to perform ad-hoc cleaning and aggregation of data sources outside the relational database management system (RDBMS) without having to involve expensive and scarce technical resources.

Everything about Izenda is web-based, making it the most cloud ready BI platform on the market. For independent software vendors whose applications have unique security requirements, Izenda maintains support for hybrid or on premise deployment models.

Improvements to Dashboard 2.0 were attained through the use of Angular.js, keeping Izenda at the leading edge of technology. In a world where every calculation, every new application and its impact on performance is heavily scrutinized, Izenda continues to pursue a standard of a lightweight web application, improving the performance and usability of the host application.

By using Angular.js, Izenda provides the end user with the most seamless and responsive experience possible. This underlying base for writing single-page applications (SPAs) puts everything into the browser at once to run the web-based application. That puts the work on the end users device, and not on the server. The server only gets accessed as needed for new data.

That makes Izenda faster and more responsive in terms of making customizations of dashboards and generating reports.

Angular.js gets the blessing of the developers world, as Google wrote it, Microsoft endorses it and the open source community loves it.

The 6.9 update assures that Izenda remains the most cloud ready, self-service embedded BI and Analytics platform while maintaining its strong support for hybrid or on premise deployment models that have unique security requirements, Nagel said. With this release we continue to build upon Izendas usability and seamless integration into our clients’ applications.

Izendas integration-ready .NET web application will be moving to.NET 4.0.

Palm Beach Podiatry Website Offers Breakthrough Information in Foot Care


Palm Beach, Florida (PRWEB) June 02, 2015

Anyone battling foot or ankle pain knows that finding a good doctor is paramount for getting the right treatment for the right problem. Websites are a good source of information when searching for a podiatrist, but Palm Beach Podiatry has launched its website with more than just a wealth of information about its background and services. Because the doctors at Palm Beach Podiatry are serious about patient relationships, they wanted their website to reflect their commitment to staying up to speed on foot care research and development across the globe.

Determined to give patients more than just great foot care, podiatrists Dr. Richard Schorr and Dr. David Feder created their new website to help keep patients educated and updated on foot care discoveries from around the world. The website was designed to include reports on breaking news and advancements in the field of podiatry.

In addition to reporting these important news stories, the Palm Beach Podiatry website provides patients and potential clients with information about its services, treatments, and dedication to treating patients like part of the family. Availability is a guiding principle at Palm Beach Podiatry, and its doctors demonstrate that principle in two ways: through their convenient locations and the way they schedule appointments.

Both Dr. Feder and Dr. Schorr understand that convenience is important when choosing a doctor. To help patients travel less and make treatment easier and faster, Palm Beach Podiatry has numerous offices around the southeast Florida area, including Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, Lantana, Lake Worth, Wellington, Royal Palm Beach, Loxahatchee, West Palm Beach, and Greenacres. Moreover, the doctors schedule extra time for each appointment, so patients dont feel ignored or disrespected. They never overbook appointments, and this ensures that patients are given as much time as they need.

Palm Beach Podiatry also takes a unique approach to foot care because this clinic treats children. The doctors handle pediatric foot care from newborn to toddler to adolescent, and theres a pediatric section on their website specifically dedicated to this age group. These doctors are skilled in diagnosing and treating childrens foot disorders, including toe walking, flat feet, pigeon toes, and sports injuries. Because Dr. Feder and Dr. Schorr understand that young children suffer from common adult foot problems, they have the tools and resources to address these issues.

Not only does Palm Beach Podiatry offer a variety of pediatric treatment options, it provides expertise in lower extremity problems including heel and arch pain, diabetic foot pain, exams for skin cancer, spider veins, ingrown toenails, and fungal infections. Palm Beach Podiatry is equipped to diagnose and help treat all problems related to the foot, ankle, calf, or thigh, and this differentiates it from other clinics. This website was designed by Foster Web Marketing, the nations premiere marketing service for medical practices, law firms, and other small businesses.

Yamaha Corporation of America Names Eaton Chief Marketing Director


Buena Park, Calif. (PRWEB) May 22, 2015

Yamaha Corporation of America (YCA) announced this week that Roger Eaton has been appointed as the companys chief marketing director. He will report to Tom Sumner, senior vice president, YCA and takes the reins from John Shalhoup, who was recently promoted to general manager of YCAs Pro Music Division.

Eaton is now responsible for overall Yamaha music and audio related promotion in the United States, developing and implementing new marketing strategies that ensure a cohesive Yamaha message across the companys product lines and sales channels to strengthen and elevate brand awareness.

The chief marketing director position plays a pivotal role in growing all Yamaha products, and Rogers track record of solid leadership, strong communication skills and imaginative marketing makes him the ideal candidate for this role, Sumner said. I am confident that he will elevate our companys overall marketing to increase the reach of the Yamaha brand.

Eaton, who brings nearly two decades of management and marketing experience with Yamaha to his new position, said he is excited about the opportunity to build on Yamahas long-standing reputation for excellence in music and sound products and services.

Our customers view all Yamaha products and services as one brand, and we are increasing our resources to be sure the customer experience is unparalleled, Eaton said. Well be focusing on our in-person events, social media and web strategies to enhance the brand experience and provide our customers with the knowledge they need to choose Yamaha as their preferred product.

Eaton took the reins as chief marketing director on May 18, having previously served as director of marketing for YCAs Band & Orchestral Division since 2004. He said his experience in successfully working to strengthen and broaden the Band & Orchestral Division and deliver unmatched customer service and support will help him lead Yamahas committed marketing team across the brand.

Yamaha is the only company that has a full complement of products for the institutional and school market, so my experience in the Band & Orchestral field will allow me to increase our total Yamaha value and solutions to educators and students, he said. Yamaha is already recognized as a brand that exemplifies a tradition of high quality, remarkable innovation and peerless customer support, so were going to work even harder to broaden that.

Eaton joined Yamahas Band & Orchestral Division in 1997 to create Dealer Development Services, a highly-acclaimed training program that strengthens Yamaha dealers business acumen. In 2002, he also took on the responsibilities of marketing manager for Winds and Stringed Instruments. In 2003, Eaton relocated with the Band & Orchestral division to YCAs national headquarters in Buena Park, Calif., and was promoted to sales and marketing manager. A year later, he was appointed the divisions director of marketing.

Under his leadership, Yamahas Band & Orchestral Division became the first band instrument company to create content-driven marketing programs including podcasts, online product training, and sell-through programs.

Eatons leadership extends beyond YCA. He is also a recognized leader in the music industry, including his service as a board member for both the Music Distributors Association and United Sound, a Yamaha-sponsored organization that helps provide access to school music for special needs children.

Increased Microbial Activity Helps Overcome Cool Weather Plant Stress


Balaton, MN (PRWEB) May 20, 2015

Earlier plantings and planting into cold soils present challenges to crop growth and development. For example, corn is a warm season grass, which means that optimal growth for corn is around 85-90 degrees F. Corn will tolerate colder temperatures to around 50 degrees F, but growth will be slowed and sluggish. In a sense, the plant will be under some type of stress especially early in the growing season when temperatures are lower.

Modern genetics and defensive seed treatments have encouraged growers to plant earlier and the rewards for planting early are great when the weather cooperates by increasing temperatures. The risks of planting early include periods of time when the temperatures do not increase, or actually decrease. This puts the crop into stress that can be difficult for the plant to overcome, said Pete Hallberg, Agnition Field and Technical Agronomist. The slow response of soil microbial activity is related to the plants inability to obtain essential nutrients, and many nutrient deficiencies are observed.

AIMGs Buyer Persona Focus for Website Redesign


Lake Success, NY (PRWEB) May 19, 2015

AIMG (http://www.aimg.com) recently launched the new mobile-friendly, fully responsive website it designed for Donnelly Mechanical, a leading New York City HVAC contractor. Focusing the project on Donnellys buyer personas, AIMG developed content and design elements to align with the current needs and interests of Donnellys varied target audience groups. The goal was to set the stage for conversion and achieving trackable, quantifiable business goals.

Donnelly is a well-established company that serves a distinguished list of clientele representing some of the citys most prestigious buildings, said Joe DeMicco, Founder and CEO of AIMG. Before any content was developed, it was critical for us to understand the various buyer persona types that represent Donnellys ideal clients. We met individually with each of Donnellys department heads to develop profiles not only for the various buyer personas but also for each faction of the Donnelly team, from executive right through to the service guys in the field. This type of in-depth profiling allows us to develop content and communication initiatives that resonate and align with the intended audience, whether it is a loyal client, new prospect, or a member of the Donnelly team. Additionally, Persona Development empowers Donnelly to develop the right offers, programs, and communications for the right audience at the right time, such as aligning with seasonal needs or buying cycles, in order to achieve the desired business results. The process is a type of due diligence that gives you the insight you need to make an intelligent, informed plan designed to get you to your goal. Once everything is developed and in place, we continue to track and analyze behavior and the effectiveness of the content to make sure it is achieving what it needs to. Making timely adjustments is also part of the process.

The new website is a fully responsive design that can be accessed from virtually any device, including Smartphones, tablets, phablets, laptops, and desktops. Working closely with Donnellys executive and marketing teams, AIMG developed messaging and images that allow Donnelly to be understood in ways that are important to them and meaningful to their targeted buyer personas.

A website is a business tool, explained Joe DeMicco. More than a calling card, it is a communication platform where you have the opportunity to attract and persuade visitors to establish a business relationship with your company. The success of your website depends on how well it aligns with what your audience is interested in and trying to achieve at that moment. Bottom line: you have to know your various audience groups, or as we say, your targeted buyer personas; otherwise, youre just guessing and you may as well be tossing coins in a fountain. Our experience proves you get better results with intelligent planning based on verifiable information. It is the way we approach everything we do, whether it is website design, content development, or management of a marketing campaign. Our business is to bring business to our clients. We have found that the best way to do that is to know as much as we can about our clients and those they serve. Our strategic Buyer Persona Development facilitates that understanding on a profound level.

The Donnelly Mechanical website is available at http://www.donnellymech.com. Information about Buyer Persona Development and Website Development is available at aimg.com.
