ILOG. a member of the OpenAjax Alliance, today announced that its graphical visualization offering for Adobe Flex, ILOG Elixir, is shipping with feature and sales channel enhancements. ILOG Elixir, available now, was warmly received by the Adobe Flex community during its Beta period.

"Our collaboration with ILOG adds important value to the RIA ecosystem," said Dave Gruber, group product marketing manager for Adobe Flex at Adobe.

"ILOG Elixir provides sophisticated user displays and essential graphical data components for developers and enterprises using Adobe Flex and Adobe AIR to build and deploy the most engaging applications with the widest reach across browsers, desktops and operating systems," Gruber continued.

ILOG Elixir 1.0 enables rapid creation of advanced, business-critical and engaging RIAs for the browser and the desktop using Adobe Flex 3 and Adobe AIR software - from dashboards to planning and human resources displays. ILOG Elixir 1.0 features seven components, including a new one dedicated to gauges and dials. The new component enables drag and drop interface design and an advanced dedicated framework for specific gauge creation with fine-tuned appearance and behavior for custom business dashboards.

In addition to the new gauges and dials module, ILOG Elixir 1.0 includes the following six graphical data-display components:

  • 3D charts: fully interactive with 40+ predefined settings, including line, area, column, bar and pie charts that support orthographic, oblique projections and stacking.
  • Maps of the world: location-aware dashboards made easy with ready-made maps of the world, continents and countries. Color coding and custom object overlays as charts or custom map import are at a click of a button.
  • Radar chart (a.k.a. spider, Kiviat, web chart): display and compare a limited set of unrelated factors such as software reliability, aesthetic appeal, responsiveness and compatibility.
  • Organization charts: visual and interactive representation of company human resources for easy navigation of employee databases with rich, interactive experience and stunning animations.
  • Gantt resource chart: planned activities for numerous resources and long periods of time available at a glance and tasks rescheduling are few clicks away.
  • Treemaps: invaluable graphics for analyzing and spotting trends and outliers in raw data sets. Also described as graphical pivot tables, Elixir's treemaps come with built-in drill-down capabilities.
"We are impressed with the quality and completeness of the first version of Elixir," said Ralf Schroeder, Product Manager Technology, Workday, Inc. "ILOG's solution provides immediate value to our Business Services and we are looking forward to expanding our partnership in the future."
