Sightline is pleased to announce the release of Enterprise Data Manager (EDM) version 4.1. EDM 4.1 includes exciting new UI updates and automation enhancements designed to help you maintain control of your environment and stay ahead of the forecasting curve.

ForSight Forecasting: Compare forecast against collected data

1208_aSightline ForSight replaces the manual capacity planning process with fully automated forecasts that can be defined in less than a minute. ForSight gives you the early warning required to proactively manage IT resources and saves you time and money by automating the capacity planning process. In EDM 4.1, ForSight includes the ability to compare actual data with its historical forecast.

Hovering over any data point within the forecasted report (dotted line) presents a small window displaying the accuracy (measured in %) of the forecast.
