Our Signals and Story products are unique and combined with the exceptional breadth of our analytic platform capabilities, enable Yellowfin to deliver beautifully simple solutions to our customers' complex data problems.

Originally intended to assist analyst personas using self-service, augmentation and, increasingly, automation are now being applied to help end users directly, giving rise to a new user category: augmented consumers. These are nontechnical people who expect insights to find them, often in the form of machine-generated data stories driven by automated insights based on ongoing monitoring of data relevant to their role, persona or job function."
