In many organizations, data source time zones and units vary.
Data sources may be located in several different time zones and countries using different date and time formats or other units of measure. For example, Europe and the United States do not use the same date or time formats.
The data must be “normalized” to a consistent base time zone and date-time format. When setting up an interface, set the time zone of the data source so that Visual KPI Server will be able to accurately display the data. The date-time syntax must be specified based on local time.
When the local unit is configured for an interface, Visual KPI Server can compensate for these varieties of denoting units.
For example, Europe uses commas to denote euros and cents whereas North America uses periods to denote dollars and cents. North America uses commas to denote intervals of thousands; Europe uses a space.
