Did you know IBM Planning Analytics Workspace (PAW) allows you to visualize your data using a variety of charts and graphs, including the ability to display your results via a pie chart? In order to create a pie chart, you must follow one simple rule: ensure that you have only one “measure” element on either the row or the column.
You can create a pie chart in PAW with three easy steps:
1. Ensure that a dimension is defined as the measure by right clicking on the cube name within Server Explorer and then selecting the option for properties.
2. Create a view in PAW with either the rows or the columns displaying a single element from the measure dimension.
3. Set your visualization type to be a pie.
The resulting display will appear as a pie chart:
Once the pie chart is created, you can use PAW to change the appearance of the colors, the legend and other details.
