If you’re adding charting capabilities to applications but are looking to deliver a better user experience than is possible using image-based charting components, FusionCharts has what you need. With FusionCharts v3, you can create animated and interactive charts that add a Wow! factor to your Web and enterprise applications. Already, 17,000 customers and 330,000 users in over 110 countries have discovered the competitive advantage FusionCharts delivers.
“FusionCharts helps you make web reports and dashboards look stunning,” said Pallav Nadhani, cofounder and CEO of FusionCharts. “It is the industry’s leading enterprise-grade charting component.”
There are also FusionCharts or FusionCharts-powered packages specific to SharePoint, Flex, PowerPoint, Visual Basic, Dreamweaver, FileMaker and Joomla.
What Makes FusionCharts Different?
First of all, better aesthetics. Despite the wide availability of charting components, developers can nevertheless be disappointed with the results. Because FusionCharts are animated, reports or dashboards built with them make a great first impression. The charts provide beautiful gradients that developers can opt to render in 2D or 3D and smart layouts.
“No other charting component comes even close to the looks we offer,” said Nadhani.
Fast and easy implementation. FusionCharts imports data in simple XML or JSON, so it is very easy to use with them with any language and database including SQL Server. Web developers can usually create their first charts in 15 minutes aided in part by FusionCharts’ comprehensive documentation.
Higher performance. Generating interactive charts can involve a lot of server-side image-map or Java code that degrades performance. Every time a new chart has to be generated, a new request must be sent to the server. FusionCharts generate charts on the client-side so there is far less overhead affecting the server. Each time a new image has to be generated, only the new data has to be fetched from the server.
