On September 10th EthicsPoint announced the release of the first new software application added to the Framework we announced last May - epVisualization Manager. After having previewed it during our Regional User Forums over the past few months, I can sincerely state that you will be blown away by what it can do once you see it and start working with it - the possibilities are bounded only by your imagination!
Simply put, epVM allows you to map multiple layers of data to create a location-based dashboard. That data can come from EthicsPoint products (such as the location of your remote offices and all the associated reports of misconduct), RSS and other public feeds (such as weather data), premium data feeds (eg subscription data highlighting corruption trends in third world countries) and proprietary feeds (eg point of sale data from your internal financial applications). By layering data on a map, you can then begin to visualize patterns and trends that simply wouldn't be possible if you were trying to accomplish the same thing through spreadsheets or other methods.
We're demonstrating Visualization Manager this week at the annual SCCE Compliance Institute in Chicago, and next week at the ACUA and ECOA annual conferences. If you aren't planning to attend one of these shows and would like to learn more, contact us and we'd be thrilled to give you a tour!
