Better connectivity with other data origins, better visualization, and the ability to create KPIs directly would all help.There are scalability issues. It depends on the data volume and number of end-users. VA requires a lot of hardware resources to move volumes of data.The charts and tables could use better sorting, primarily using other variables than the ones on the figure. If they could implement views like in the older version (previous to Viya), it would be very nice.
