To present your data you can choose from a set of different chart types. This article will give you an overview of the available chart types. To learn more about how to configure a chart, please read the article about how to display data using charts.

Chart

Description

Function

Line Chart

Displays its data series as connected lines.

Line Charts are useful to see the development or trends of chosen key figures.

Column Chart

Displays data using vertical bars. Multiple data series can be displayed next to each other.

Column Charts can be used to compare different key figures in the same dimensionality. For example, you can use it to compare the profit across different Scenarios and years.

Bar Chart

Displays data as a rotated Column Chart.

Bar Charts enable the same usage as a Column Chart.

Stacked column/bar

Displays its data by stacking the elements on top/next to each other if multiple data series are displayed.

Stacked Charts are mostly used when multiple data series for the same value are displayed.

Pie Chart

Displays the data via proportional slices in a circular graph.

Pie Charts are often used to effectively show the proportions of data.

Area Chart

Displays data as an extension of the Line Chart with the area below a line being filled with colour.

Area Charts can be used to visualize data and its trends over time.

Mixed Chart

This Chart is a combination between a stacked Column Chart and a Line Chart. By default, data series are displayed as stacked vertical bars, but it is possible to configure single data series to be displayed as a line.

Mixed Charts can be used to display the relations between multiple key figures.

Table

Displays data in a tabular format and flexibly selecting dimensions for the rows and columns. In tables, you can display a lot of information from different key figures and their sub - figures across multiple Dimensions and compare different Scenarios.

With Tables, you can, for example, build profit and loss statements, cash-flow statements and more. In Valsight you have the ability to do so in an aggregated or detailed format.

Waterfall Chart

Displays a transition between values.

Waterfall Charts can be used to create a Profit Bridge that explains how the profit developed was from one year to the next or to create an Assumption Bridge that explains a Simulation Scenario by adding up the effects of all Assumptions.

Packed bubble Chart

Displays data using the size (and colour) of bubbles. The positioning of the bubbles is not significant but is optimized for compactness.

Packed Bubble Charts are used to, for example, display the effects of several Assumptions.

Scenario Bridge

Displays the effect of all Assumptions on a key figure.

With Scenario Bridges, you can show the effect of the whole Assumptions or the effect of each Line-Item inside the Assumptions.

Model Tree

Shows the graphical Value Driver structure of the underlying Model and allows the display of values for multiple Scenarios inside of the Nodes.

Model Trees are useful to understand how data flows through a Model and impacts top KPIs.
