Guided NLQ

We have re-imagined what it truly means to be self-service in analytics. With Guided NLQ (Natural Language Query), anyone — guided with thousands of comprehensively modelled question types and sequences — can ask complex questions of their data with natural language queries. Answers, automatically delivered as best practice visualizations and tabular reports for every possible question combination, can be added into any Yellowfin content. Guided NLQ is also integrated throughout the Yellowfin platform and embeddable in any application.

New Advanced Functions

Yellowfin provides out-of-the-box advanced functions that you can utilize within your reports and charts to transform results, applying post processing calculations to initial query results. In this release, over ten additional functions have been added — automating calculations for outliers, stepped regression, growth and differences, percentage of segment, and more.

Enhanced Append Data in SubQueries

Basic and Advanced Append SubQueries on the same data source have been enhanced to allow subquery joins on fields that are not part of the final report. This removes unwanted fields from the report while simultaneously applying aggregation for the ones that matter, providing increased flexibility around multi-fact joins and federated analysis.
