For the monitoring of supply chain with DHSI2, we had frequent requests for a way to present tabular data that allowed for drill down & showing matrix-like data (for example to follow different metrics about the same drug – stock in, stock out, etc).

To enable this, we developed a “pivot table” application with those features in, using the same data than the pivot table but with a different visualisation.
A very important feature of the “pivot browser” is to be able to visualise data elements in line and in columns. In the above example, commodities (line) and stock levels (column).
