Imply includes an exploratory visualization interface, Pivot, that allows for fast drill-downs of very large data sets through simple drag-and-drop interactions.
With Pivot you can create data cubes, which focus on arbitrary drill downs for a single visualization, or dashboards, which are collections of visualizations for rapidly distilling information.
Dashboards let you assemble a set of data views that together give users a overview of a system:
