I have taken the interview Of Mr. Nitin Sahu for this product launch.

How does this framework differs from other frameworks ?
Having worked in BI domain for quite a long time, we have seen that in many cases end business users requirements were not met. This was either because of tool level limitation or technology limitation. Also with today’s breakneck speed at which technology is changing, it is ideally important that the existing tools should be able to evolve themselves, or risk becoming extinct.
This prompted us to develop a BI software which is API driven, which allows clients developers to add functionalities without relying on the vendor as such. Things like adding a new chart, adding a new exporting type, adding a new security layer etc can be done by merely using the existing APIs and adding functionality on top of it. Functionalities can be added at the backend using Java and at the frontend using HTML.

What are the current features of this product ?
Helical Insight : An Open source Business Intelligence tool comes with an array of features which not only makes it very exciting but also unique from other offerings in the market.
(1)   Instant BI : Helical Insight is world’s first Open source BI tool to come with inbuilt machine learning. Instant BI empowers business users to type in question and get immediate answers, thus without any technical knowledge we empower anyone to become a data analyst.

(2)   Inbuilt Workflow : Helical Insight comes with an inbuilt workflow allowing users to implement their own business processes using Helical Workflow. We are proud to inform that absolutely no other Business Intelligence tool offers such kind of capabilities.

(3)   API Driven Architecture : Being a completely API driven architecture, Helical Insight allows clients to add functionalities (which are not directly possible) by merely using the API and adding functionality on top of it.

(4)   User Role Management : Helical Insight provides extensive data security with user and role management. There are 4 layers of security which includes Organization level, Role level, Profile level and User level. Organization level security makes the entire architecture multi-tenant.

(5)   Mobile Device Compatibility : Helical Insight is built on bootstrap framework, thus the solution can be accessed from any device like mobile, tablet, laptop, desktop or TV. The entire solution is screen size responsive.

(6)   ADhoc BI : A drag drop interface allows user to connect to database and start creating reports and dashboards by merely dragging and dropping columns and adding filters. The report thus created can be visualized in any format like charts, tabular report and cross tabular report.

(7)   Caching : A server level caching ensures that even if multiple users are using the solution the performance is extremely good.

(8)   Exporting : Any report, dashboard or data can be exported in various formats like CSV, pdf, image etc.

(9)   Email scheduling : Reports and dashboards can be sent via email scheduled to users in any of the formats like pdf, image etc.

What will be the future release plans of the product ?
We plan to come up with a patch every week whereas a major release on an yearly basis.

What will be the features that you think you will be adding ?
Our current version Helical Insight 1.0 is already having many exciting features which makes it standout against any of the existing BI tool of the market. Helical Insight comes with Instant BI powered by machine learning and NLP, we do plan to invest heavily in enhancing this algorithm. Our other unique feature is an inbuilt workflow for which we plan to come up with an UI. We also have many other future features planned out like charting recommendation engine, UI for charts customization etc to name a few.

How do you think BI is going to increase the Job opportunities in India ?
With worldwide market of $16.5 Billion, BI and Data Analytics is one of the fastest growing sector. Focusing on BI in form of services as well as products IT companies can create a lot of jobs in India. We are already seeing many IT behemoths realizing this and establishing their own centre of excellence in BI space.

Do you feel we should support Make In India by creating such products within India ?
Absolutely we should. Make in India should not only be limited to manufacturing sector but also other sectors like IT as well. Talking about IT India has primarily been a services market and we should really encourage startups and companies who are making cutting edge software products.

Are you also looking for the resellers ?
Yes, we are looking for resellers. It is very important for a product company to have resellers in different geographical markets with local geography knowledge and connections. We have already finalized our reseller partner in Africa and Brazil and we are aggressively looking for more resellers in other geographies.
