Easier to identify entities of interest

Expedite your data analysis with the flexibility to make selections based on semantic type, item type, or the distinction between an end and a link. Analysts can also filter / select based on subsets.

A new ‘Singleton’ option revolutionizes the ability to focus on chart items without any links, streamlining your investigations.

These selection tools allows to speed up your investigations and save time.

Easier to focus on entities and links

The new Highlighter Tool allows to create more detailed charts. As you pan and zoom across the chart, you can keep track of highlighted entities. Even as your selection changes, your chosen entities and links remain in focus, allowing you to have that “big picture” view whilst still seeing the relationships of your highlighted entities.

You can customise your graphs by choosing colors for the highlighted entities to give them meaning – good guys, bad guys, etc.

Find and search records faster than ever

Find and search for records 50 times faster.

Updated and modernized, the List Data Records tool gives analysts a flexible and intuitive tabular view of chart data, allowing you to filter by one or more columns and quickly group similar items for deeper analysis. Analysis of 100k records is reduced from 2 minutes to 2 seconds!

The List Data Records tool works seamlessly across multiple data record types (i2 Analyze and iBase records) and now includes lightning-fast free text searches.

Usability enhancements

A number of enhancements have been made to several functions to facilitate and streamline the analyst’s work.

Time wheel
Analysts now have more control over the time wheel to improve visual understanding. This controls more precisely what is included by using the selection state to focus on entities of interest, and customize the look and feel by choosing the colors and scale that best suit the dataset.

Time wheel selections are now reflected on the chart. As you select segments on the time wheel, the graph updates to highlight the entities concerned.

Conditional formatting
Enhanced conditional formatting introduces new operators that allow analysts to highlight information depending on whether properties or attributes are populated or not. Use them, for example, to highlight information when a key value is not present.

Bar charts and histograms
Histogram animations bring data to life, highlighting connections between graph elements as they evolve over time. In this new version, these animations can now be played in reverse, allowing you to visualize the past and see how the data has evolved.


Analysis Studio and Analysis Hub also benefit from a number of feature enhancements. In addition to all the enhancements in i2® Analyst’s Notebook® v10, they offer the following benefits:

Run Visual Queries on connected data
Avoid having to import data to run a Visual Query.

If you have ever wanted to run a Visual Query but not wanted to import the data into the Information Store or iBase then look no further! This update allows analysts to get the power of the Visual Query search over connected data.

Desktop 360 View
With the 360 View feature, you can get immediate answers to the most frequently asked questions from your data.*

The 360 View feature was part of the i2 Investigate add-on module, which was then integrated into i2 Notebook and is now available in the desktop application. The 360 View can also be customized to specific user roles within your organisation, for example, an analyst will have different questions compared to frontline investigators.

* Available in Analysis Hub only (Information Store required).


Dynamic security
Update users permissions quickly.

You can ensure that only the right people have access to data without the need to work to a fixed security schema. This new characteristic gives enterprise users the ability to integrate their organisation’s access control tools into Analysis Studio and Analysis Hub to seamlessly and dynamically apply appropriate user permissions.

New views
The i2 Notebook web version (available with Analysis Studio and Analysis Hub packages), offers analysts two powerful new views: List Records and Explore.

List Records offers the power of list records in the web version, with a familiar experience for desktop users.

Explore allows users to filter and explore their chart data according to property type and values.

The two views are synchronized, so that a selection or modification of the selection in List Records will be updated in Explore and in the chart selection.

Seamlessly share your chart data

You can seamlessly share graph data with colleagues by making a selection on your chart and generating a link to share via email, Slack, Teams, WhatsApp or any other platform. Recipients receive the exact data set while keeping key style elements intact.
