1.   Log in section

2.   Data Management section

3.   Visualization section

4.   Ribbon

 

1. LOG IN SECTION

 

Zeyga Log in/Password validation has been disabled for now.

So, if you enter a login id that does not exist, a new id is created. Data streams, views, and personalized settings are saved against this id

 

In future, the process would entail the following

a.    Apply for a new login by filling out form in log in page

b.    Zeyga will validate, and when approved, send an email to the user with login credentials link

c.    User has to click on the included link to activate his user id

 

2. DATA SECTION

Zeyga Data Manager now has the following features

a.    Create Data Stream

b.   Open data stream

c.    Manage data stream

 

Create data stream - allows data to be loaded from Excel spreadsheets, csv files, and MySQL tables. The ability to load Oracle tables has not been activated as yet.

CSV files expect comma-delimited files. The next version will allow more delimiter alternatives

 

Open data stream – lists out all views currently saved for each data stream created inside Zeyga

 

Manage data stream – provides details about each of the data stream created inside Zeyga. It also provides an option to delete streams that are no longer relevant.

 

3. VISUALIZE SECTION

Zeyga Visualizer provides you with an ability to organize the data stream into dimensions and measures exactly the way you want.

 

Once you select a data stream, Zeyga automatically bifurcates the items (data) into measures or dimensions based on the data type (numbers are measures, others are dimensions)


Visualizer then allows you to

a)  Redefine the items as measures or dimensions (it automatically bifurcates when you select a data stream)

b) Add new items (by clicking on the arrow alongside the Measure and Dimension headings)

c)  Change item names, and their attributes (like data types)

 

To visualize your data, simply drag and drop the dimensions and measures into the color-coded horizontal strips at the top (or click on the item to select it). As soon as you drop the first set of measure-dimension combination, Zeyga draws out an appropriate chart that best represents the data.

 

As you keep adding dimensions and measures, the chart is continuously refreshed. A variety of charting options are provided at the chart ribbon tool bar at the bottom.

 

You can drag a measure or a dimension to the filter column to fine-tune your analysis. The filter is applied in the sequence in which it appears in the filter column. You can re-sequence a filter by dragging it up or down that column.

 

You can delete filters, and selected dimensions and measures.

 

Once done, you can save the view you created by clicking on the save button on the ribbon.

 

Advanced filters, more computations, and master-table lookup/join features will be included in later versions.

 

RIBBON

A context sensitive ribbon on the extreme left holds a number of buttons, which appear depending on the function you are performing. Functions now provided include Expand, Collapse, Save, See My Views, Move to Visualizer, Move to Manage Data Stream, Export, and Chart Settings.

 

EXPORT

The present version provides only a dump of data being viewed. The next version will provide export to PDF, CSV options as well.

 

 

 

Zeyga Ver 1.3 Release

Zeyga Ver 1.3 Release Notes

 

Date: March 3, 2015

 

 

This version has the following components

1.   Log in section

2.   Data Management section

3.   Visualization section

4.   Ribbon

 

This version primarily fixes bugs reported in Release 1.2 and provides enhancements to the Create Data Stream function of the Data section.

 

1.         Create Data Stream

From V 1.3, Zeyga uses asynchronous calls used for source data processing. Source data like Excel, CSV and MySQL are processed in the backend and is notified to the browser front-end once completed. Thus, large files are loaded in the background, freeing the front-end of “Wait” messages.          

2.         Analyze

            Format dimensions and measures

a)      Format Dimensions and Measures

Measures can be “Edit”ed to define numeric values as Indian, US or European, with precisions defined.

b)     Define Prefixes - currency symbols or 3-letter UN standard currency abbreviations

c)      Define suffixes - %, currency aggregator like MM, BB, L, Cr, or any special symbols

 

[Zeyga does not presuppose any aggregation and it leaves it to the user to state suffixes and prefixes as she/he deems appropriate].

 

d)     Computed measures and dimensions

Using simple (or complex) arithmetic formula, you can create custom measures and dimensions.

Dimensions can also be formatted by using javascript syntax like ‘Country=‘+[Country]. It will return a result like ‘Country=India’, 'Country=USA’            

e)      Sorting on selected dimension and measure used in View

View data can be sorted by dimension and measure values 

 

f)       Measure filters – sliders and ranges

If the slider is inconvenient to provide accurate value ranges, you can now choose to enter the exact range for a filter as an alternative.

 

g)      Search for Views using keywords

You can now search for  saved views by entering keywords. This search will be performed on the entire library of saved views, and matched views will be presented.

 

h)     View titles

Views can now have titles, distinct from View Names. Titles can be provided while saving a View. A newly created view will have a default 'New View'.
