by | Aug 2, 2023

LONDON – Brytlyt is a UK start-up with a GPU-accelerated analytics platform built on their world-beating database. Their high-performance visualisation tool has undergone a complete makeover and, after 18 months of continuous development, the new and improved version is now available on their website

Significant improvements have been made to the UX of the graphic user interface, adding brand new capabilities in Business Intelligence workflows. This takes the user experience to a new level and allows users flexibility that is not possible with other popular visualisation tools.


The latest updates to Brytlyt 5.0 

Exceptional user experience: Brytlyt collected feedback from users and worked extensively with UX experts to completely transform the interactivity and ease of use of the platform.

Mapping editor: The mapping editor has experienced the biggest changes. It is now easier to build, edit and navigate interactive charts. In particular, making improvements to visualising different layers of aggregation, so that looking at high level maps or drilling into granular data is seamless and understandable.

Chart creation: Users can draw from the library of charts within the platform. Anything a user wants to create is now possible.

Advanced scripting: Easier to use than before – frontend scripting is one of the most important Brytlyt features. Almost every field may be set not only by creators, drop-downs, and switches but also by a script. Brytlyt 5.0 provides script auto-generators, syntax suggestions, and multiple examples to create highly customised and responsive worksheets easier than ever before.

Data filtering: Important updates have been made to improve how users interact with the data filtering functionality, enabling faster time to insight.

In-app documentation – External documentation is useful, but outdated. In Brytlyt 5.0 users can alt-click any element and see the corresponding documentation fragment inside the application.

Serverless: Brytlyt’s visualisation tool is deployed on a serverless platform. Running in the cloud and easily accessible through a browser log in, users can now benefit from cost-effective, on-demand, and flexible GPU-powered data visualisation.

Augmented data science: Brytlyt have added, components for deep learning on structured data and the deployment of neural networks, supporting tight MLOps integration. The full version with integrated AI will be publicly available in the next release in 2023.
