Profit from Sales Forecast Control

Demo Instructions & Notes:
  1. Adjust the sliders for the sales and costs to predict future income in this Silverlight control. As you increase sales, profits go up. Conversely, when costs go up, net income drops.
  2. This tool can answer questions based on prior year's performance. For example, an executive could use this tool to preditct how far profits would fall if he gave a 5% raise to every member of his team. Not only is it in real-time, but fluid in the way it handles input.

Concepts shown in demo:
Silverlight can be used to create complex interactive predictive models that can provide real-time BI 2.0 insight. The best feature of these tools is that they are self-service. The user can't really mess up the model with bad input.
