Dashboard Intelligence

Long live Dashboard Intelligence!

Following the demise of iGoogle and Google Reader, many users were left without a home overnight. Various bloggers commented that this might signal the death of both feed readers and startpages. Considering that Netvibes has gained a record number of users last month —literally hundreds of thousands of new users(*)— this notion couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Netvibes started as a way to organize your daily digital life. Back then it was just about getting all your feeds in one customizable place and curate content to share with others.

Should we have stayed there, we’d probably disappeared too.

Then came the social web, bringing far too much data for anyone to monitor manually. So we immediately brought you automated social analytics and alerts, so you can uncover trends and influencers automatically. We changed our tagline to “Dashboard Everything” to prove Netvibes empowered you to monitor everything that mattered to you and we carved our vision: Dashboard Intelligence.

Dashboards drive to Intelligence to help you make decisions. More data, faster updates enforce this need to analyze, suggest and even act for you.

Then, we were acquired by Dassault Systèmes, one of the largest enterprise software companies in the world. We mentioned then that they see the world exactly as we do —a common vision to help people go from being buried by data, to visualizing it and beyond— which is to say to extract actionable insights. We are Dashboard Intelligence.

The start page and Readers as we knew them may have drastically evolved, but Dashboard Intelligence has emerged. Real-time dashboards have never been more relevant. It’s not just about the apps, or the feeds, or social data. It’s about bringing it all together and automating the insights.

In a couple weeks at LeWeb, we will present our answer to the theme of the event “The Next 10 Years of The Web”. And our answer is simple. It’s about empowerment. Putting the power of control and insight back into the hands of the user, who has been increasingly buried under more and more data. How will we do it? Stay tuned to find out!

(*) We recorded a 338% increase in new user registrations, a 349% increase in new dashboards created and a 153% increase in daily crawled streams following both services’ closing.

Dashboard Anytime. Introducing new Offline mobile access.

First we promised to help you “dashboard everything” on the real-time Web and fulfilled this promise with 1-Click Dashboards and Wasabi’s 2-in-1 Smart Reader. Then we helped you “dashboard anywhere” with new mobile versions for Android, iPad and iPhone, featuring real read/unread syncing across all platforms.

Starting today, now you can “dashboard anytime” and continue to read your favorite feeds even when you’re offline. Now when you go offline, you will see a special notification that you’re in “offline mode” and you can still continue to read articles. Even better, you can organize articles and mark posts to read them later when you get back online.

The next time you go back online, your read/unread counts and Read Later lists will automatically be synced to your account and all of your other devices. This means that even if you’re in a subway under the ocean or on a plane up in the sky, you can continue to read all your feeds, and when you get back to your home or office, it will all be synced up! How cool is that?

As you know, Netvibes is not a startpage. It’s an enterprise strength real-time dashboard that’s also used by agencies, brands, governments and enterprises around the world. Our latest innovations this year enable world-class organizations to “dashboard everything, anywhere, anytime across all devices”, even while traveling in locations without Internet access. This makes sure that you can be always on, even when you’re on the go.
