IDS Chooses AnyChart for Its Reporting and Analysis Systems November 21st, 2011 by Margaret Skomorokh

We are happy to publish a new success story, this time about AnyChart and Independent Data Services (IDS) – a company from the upstream oil and gas industry.

IDS, founded in 1995, is the world’s largest provider of web-based reporting and analysis services to the upstream oil and gas industry. IDS’ latest release — DataNet2 — makes full use of Web 2.0-compliant technologies and WITSML feeds to capture and deliver data via the web to unlimited users. The DataNet2 suite of products includes VisNet — a back-end query engine which extracts knowledge from every part of the DataNet2 system.

The challenge was:

  • To visualize the data returned by VisNet (KPI’s, benchmarks) and create configurable and interactive charts.
  • To ensure that all visualizations would be customizable, matching IDS’ high standards.
  • To implement a variety of charts.

AnyChart’s charting technology was used to generate visualizations for VisNet because:

  • The component allows for the creation of advanced and good-looking animated charts.
  • AnyChart is very flexible and provides a lot of features, which made it a good choice for IDS’ project.
  • The AnyChart library includes a wide range of charts which is constantly growing. Currently VisNet supports Bar, Column, Pie, Line, and Scatter graphs, but more will be added.

AnyChart 6.0.5 Released November 14th, 2011 by Timothy Loginov

Today we are glad to announce the release of AnyChart 6.0.5. We are constantly improving the HTML5 engine, and soon it will become fully functional. Besides that, we keep adding new features and refining various aspects of AnyChart, including the smallest details (which, as we believe, are never insignificant) to make it more and more convenient to use.

In AnyChart 6.0.5 we have introduced a number of important improvements:

Important note: Because of the bug in Flash Player 11.0.1.152 Radar and Polar charts are displayed incorrectly. If you use any of 5.x or 6.x AnyChart versions with this version of Flash Player, please, switch either to AnyChart 6.0.5 or to Flash Player 11.1.102.55 (or later).

Please, feel free to contact us if any questions arise. We appreciate our clients and work hard to anticipate their needs and keep pace with the latest demands of the industry, making our charts even more flexible and attractive.
