  6. 6. What is Cosmos?• Self-serve Data Visualisation platform• Runs from “Fabric” data-file – including multi-source data• Portal framework: roles-based access & extensible structure• Exports to PDF, PPT, XLS• Closed Loop Performance Improvement tools:– “OnPoint” Action Planning (OPAP)– Red Alerts– Organisational Action Maps• Visualisations/ features:– Over 30 chart styles inc Org Charts, People Charts and Action Maps– Composite report styles such as Scorecards– Click-through, drill-down and Report Assistant for navigation• Tariff-based price model• Secure UK-based hosting
