GoodData Reveals New Suite of UI Capabilities to Make Analytics Pervasive

GoodData has launched GoodData Spectrum, a suite of user interface (UI) capabilities to deliver the right insights to line-of-business users to support a full gamut of decision-making, from transactional to strategic, all at their point of work. Spectrum fundamentally changes how analytics are used and adopted throughout the organization.


Billions of dollars are spent on a data infrastructure, strategies, and talent annually, yet organizations still view data as a cost instead of a point for competitive differentiation and disruption. Business users don’t want more spreadsheets, static dashboards, or reports; rather they want only the information that is relevant to the decision at hand, presented in a way that is personalized, contextual, intuitive, and actionable. The GoodData platform provides insights in the form of recommendations and predictive analytics and takes the guesswork out of identifying mission-critical insights by delivering  the analytics that matter most for real-time decision-making.


As Gartner states, “Analysis will become increasingly embedded in processes, devices and applications; it will therefore be both more pervasive and less visible — flipping the burden of prompting its use from the user to the machine.” Gartner Predicts 2018: Analytics and BI Strategy, Gareth Herschel, Alexander Linden, Rita L.

“GoodData Spectrum offers unlimited potential to design with our end users in mind. We aren’t limited by traditional rigid Business Intelligence functionality with an overabundance of static dashboards and no interactivity,” shares Cody Alton, Partner Solutions at Zalando. “With GoodData Spectrum we can roll out customized features based on our product vision and roadmap to ensure we exceed the needs of our customers.”


GoodData Spectrum includes three user interaction frameworks:

GoodData.UI enables building of custom applications from thousands of ready-made, commercial, open source and custom components. Data visualizations can be embedded and customized in a few lines of code, no iFrames involved.

KPI Dashboards arms users to track KPI changes over time, comparing current values to previous periods. Users can also set alerts and be notified when KPIs reach a certain threshold. Interactive dashboards can be saved and published to other users, and embedded into Web applications.

Analytic Designer allows business users to easily explore curated datasets and discover new insights. Using pre-packaged or custom visualizations and automated actions, no training is needed to support strategic decision-making and publishing.


“Analytics within organizations today is no longer about one-size-fits-all with low adoption rather, analytics is now critical to everyday business success,” said Roman Stanek, CEO at GoodData. “With GoodData Spectrum, we now enable data and insights to support the complete range of business decisions.”
