CONVERIS Research Analytics offers users an interactive web interface specifically designed for reporting, combining data through drag-and-drop into individually designed reports, producing dynamic pivot table-like aggregations of metrics, visualising data with charts and constructing dynamic dashboards that enable analyses to be conducted throughout the complete Research Life Cycle, without reliance on IT specialists.
