2:45- 3:15 pm | Dashboard Development made easier: An Xcelsius add-on created by InfoSol – Runali Ghosh, InfoSol
Despite numerous great features and advantages of Xcelsius, developers often face challenges when building complex and large dashboards. The first major challenge is that the work cannot be divided among multiple developers due to its lack of capability to merge and share dashboard projects. The second challenge is faced when the number of components increases because the loading, previewing and navigation of the dashboard tends to slow down. This session will demonstrate examples of Advanced iFrame; an add-on component that enables developing large dashboards with several tabs and pages, permitting multiple developers to work in parallel while breaking it up into logical modules.
