New NetCharts Reporting Suite Features Build on Core Capabilities

Enhancements to the Visual Mining NetCharts Reporting Suite performance dashboard software include:

    display in an HTML table.  Use AJAX-based controls to navigate through
    large HTML tables without requiring full Web page refreshes.

    AJAX, menus automatically update their content based on selections made in
    other menus without full Web page refreshes.
