Ramp Up Analyzer

rampupThis is my latest BI Tool for analyzing ramp up trends at new shipping warehouses(hubs). I have found that the same Java tools can be used to create nifty BI applications to capture any business information and display in a graphical manner. 

By cobbling up a bunch of Java libraries(JfreeCharts,JDBC,SWING), I figured it was pretty easy to create a visual tool that dynamically plots a ramp-up graph. This can be across days–of-a-month or across months-of-an-year. All we need is a connection to the database.

 This gets rid of all the excel-related drudgery. We can just as easily generate any type of chart(PIE,BAR,LINE) for any “Business Intelligence” requirement that can be expressed in SQL.
