DIAdem 2012, the latest version of the software tool specifically designed to help engineers and scientists share and interpret data, has been announced by National Instruments. Optimised to operate on large data sets, it is a single, unified software environment that the company says makes engineers and scientists more efficient when locating, inspecting, visualising, analysing and reporting on data. In addition to engineering-specific analysis functions, DIAdem 2012 features a powerful drag-and-drop report editor and runs scripts for automating repetitive tasks. Reporting features include improved performance of multipage report layouts, an object-oriented VBScript API for automating reports and scalable background images for 2D charts.
