Vi­su­al­ize your data

Busi­ness users might not be the tar­get au­di­ence for Ap­ple TV, but devel­op­ers are tar­get­ing the hard­ware as more than just a stream­ing me­dia box. Case in point: Numer­ics, an app ded­i­cated to help­ing com­pa­nies vi­su­al­ize key per­for­mance in­di­ca­tors (KPI), used to reach tar­gets.

Numer­ics makes cre­at­ing vis­ual dash­boards a snap, thanks to con­nec­tions with over 40 cloud ser­vices so met­rics are up­dated in real time. Cus­tom con­nec­tors en­able pulling data from spread­sheets, in-house sys­tems, or third-party soft­ware via JSON.

You don’t de­sign the dash­boards on Ap­ple TV — this work is done on iPhone or iPad, then synced via iCloud. From there, you use the Siri Re­mote to move between dif­fer­ent on-screen wid­gets and click the touch­pad to open in full screen.

Ex­ist­ing dash­boards can be re­sized with a click and hold on the Touch Sur­face, which tog­gles between sizes with­out hav­ing to go back and edit the data. You can even use ges­tures to flip through full-screen KPIs for faster nav­i­ga­tion.

For a vis­ual rep­re­sen­ta­tion of how your busi­ness is do­ing, Numer­ics’ visu­ally-rich dash­boards pro­vide in­for­ma­tion on KPIs.
