A yarn you can trust.

Improve data accuracy and timeliness by harnessing the full power of Yellowfin for information presentation while ensuring a single source of truth from a centralized, secure data store. This means that data used in a story or presentation is up to date, accurate and secure with a full audit trail. This also eliminates the unreliable process of copying-and-pasting every time new information arrives or old data is updated, allowing presentations and stories to be built once with data refreshed as often as needed, automatically, significantly reducing time and effort.

From data-analyst to story teller.

Yellowfins collaboration tools enable stories and presentations to be co-created by multiple contributors. Business users can easily collaborate with analysts to build compelling data stories that combine analysis with narrative to deliver a data driven storytelling experience more likely to persuade, inspire trust, and lead change.

What's the story?

As embedded data is dynamic, viewers or readers of presentations and stories can drill into the detail and get behind the numbers. This interactive way to engage with a data story or presentation can improve understanding and decision-making with real-time, accessible insights.

The narrative tools you need to share meaningful data discoveries

Stories and Present can be used in many different settings to share relevant expertise and add helpful interpretation to data insights, for valuable context that enriches depth of understanding.

Operational reporting

Amplify your business updates with fully embedded videos, pictures and other interactive media. Embed BI reports directly into your updates, or even widgets from third-party SaaS apps. Whether you use the engaging long-form blog format of Stories or seamless presentations of Present, you deliver valuable context to your everyday data, more valuable than the data itself.

Project Management

Foster deeper project status reporting for project managers by embedding task-boards from digital workplace collaboration tools, such as Monday and Trello, directly into their updates. With Stories and Present, project updates can be further highlighted to teams with a recurring long-form narrative or end-of-month presentation that helps keep people invested in their work.


Stories and Present brings your data and insights collated and discovered across multiple tools together into one platform, creating a unified hub for leaders, managers and workers to keep every team, department and workplace up-to-date on the latest data discoveries. Powerful business narratives can be shared in one convenient tool, rather than several disparate ones.

Employee blogging

Drive a data-driven culture among employees with narrative and storytelling tools directly in-built within the same analytics platform they use everyday for work. Inspire employees to share their unique expertise, interpretation and success stories in internal blogs and presentations, with their embedded data at the forefront of the narrative.

External reporting

Create a private channel to share detailed insight stories directly with trading partners, such as annual sales reports and customer engagement and feedback. Create a public channel to push success stories to customers and general public in an interactive and personal way, reducing the need for other communications, like email, that further fragment important conversations.
