Fusion Charts for SharePoint 2010

Recently we had a requirement to create highly visual Dashboard in SharePoint to be implemented in very less time.  We used one of the charting tools known as Fusion Charts for the same.  The best part about these charts is they can be used with any version of SharePoint - WSS, MOSS 2007 and all versions on SharePoint 2010. 

The various benefits of the tool are:
  1. It can be used with different data sources - SharePoint lists, Views, CSV, SQL, Excel. 
  2. It is easy to use without any code.
  3. It has an entirely visual interface and charts can be created without any code.
  4. It supports Filtering, Grouping and Drill downs.
  5. The most important thing is the look and feel.  These charts are highly animated and the business users and customers can be wowed by Dashboards built using this tool.

  1. The features are well expressed Swati. The best part of the FusionCharts charting components are that it could be integrated with any server-side technology (ASP, ASP.NET, PHP, JSP, ColdFusion, Ruby on Rails etc.) and database. Recently a new site has launched focusing the sharepoint dashboards and allied. We are regular follower of FusionCharts.
