Communicating your company's benefits to customers with real time business graphics can be difficult, slow, and expensive.

But you can empower your Sales and line of business leaders to create powerful, interactive charts and graphs using the tool they already know and love -- spreadsheets.

Web designers and "Photoshop jockeys" cannot keep pace with the need to display relevant, updated business graphics updated on your website and customer portals.


We offer the Sheetster web spreadsheet as the perfect way to enable you and your business users to publish real-time, dynamic Ajax charts on your websites while managing them from your Alfresco WCM.


Sheetster+Alfresco is an open source spreadsheet solution for spreadsheet management, data visualization, and spreadsheet web apps.

By storing the spreadsheets in Alfresco WCM, and editing them with Sheetster, you can support versioned editing of these docs by global team workers, without the need for Excel on their desktops.


This approach engages line of business users in the process. Thus, it:

1.
Lowers your development costs,
2.
Frees up creative staff, and
3.
Provides website visitors with easy to understand, up-to-date visual information on your company and products.

This session covers:

1.
Uploading an Excel spreadsheet to Alfresco Web Content Management system
2.
Open the Spreadsheet in the Sheetster editor from within the Alfresco WCM
3.
Create charts and graphics from existing content
4.
Publish chart with live data to a web portal using JavaScript or a REST API call.



If you have business intelligence needs, as a developer, systems integrator, or line-of-business manager, this is a must-see.
