Projects / IBM OpenDX


IBM OpenDX, the successor to IBM Visualization Data Explorer, (known simply as DX) is a general-purpose software package for data visualization and analysis. It employs a data-flow driven client-server execution model and provides a graphical program editor that allows the user to create a visualization using a point and click interface. Applications can also be built on top of portions of the Data Explorer system, so that custom, turnkey applications can be easily developed using DX as the computational and rendering engine.
