Modules comparison


Knowage modules allow to build a tailored product. Each module is conceived for a specific analytical domain and with the full set of necessary capabilities to work alone without restrictions. This way, some functionalities are available in more than one module and, when combining more modules, they are shared. Here below the detailed table of Knowage modules to explain which capabilities are available in which modules.


Static, pixel-perfect reports
