CMX 10.2 Analytics – The Correlation Widget

gmcgarryWritten by Ian Mc Garry, CMX Software Engineer

The release of CMX 10.2 is coming soon and with introduces the improved Correlation Widget. Allowing you to view the relationship between areas, Correlation is a powerful tool.

Using the Correlation Widget we can quantify this relationship and prove or even disprove our theory.
