DN Investor

Powered by Norkon Pluse & Live Center

Dagens Næringsliv (Norwegian Business Daily), Norway’s largest financial newspaper, came to Norkon with a need for an innovative financial news platform driven by the ongoing digital transformation in the media industry.

DN wanted to
  • Innovate their financial news coverage
  • Generate a new source of revenue
  • Reduce subscriber churn
  • Attract a younger segment of readers

Our solution was an full implementation of Norkon’s two solutions: Pulse powered by streaming real-time stock data and a full suite of financial tools. Live Center providing DN’s journalists with a live blogging solution to cover breaking news in real-time.

Proff.no - The Business Finder

Proff.no is Norway’s biggest and most recognized search engine for detailed company information. They wanted an intuitive search function for looking up all the shareholders in Norway, based on data gathered from the Norwegian Tax Department.

Norkon delivered a fast and innovative service that allows for searching for and viewing direct, and indirect, ownership of shares - both as a table and as a visual result.

Greenfact

Greenfact is an intelligence web-platform and analytical tool for the renewable energy market. The Greenfact Team has monitored the renewable energy market since 2010 with a special focus on the Guarantees of Origin market.

Greenfact wanted to renew and rebuild their data section in an innovative and user-friendly way. Norkon delivered a visual and brand new data section, making it easier to explore the renewable prices, capacity, historical data and much more.

Alchemy Trading

Alchemy trading, selected as the best equity focused hedge fund in 2015 at the Nordic Hedge Awards, had a need to clarify their investment strategy to potential investors.

Norkon’s solution was an intuitive visualization that crystallized Alchemy’s trading startegy through an innovative visualization:

  • Trailing arrow shows the movements of variables
  • Key visualizations represent a common language, which simplifies communication of investing principles to potential investors

Huseiernes landsforbund

Communicating with data is engaging - and the reason is simple. Data driven visualization is all about allowing the user to self-select information that is relevant to him or her.

In this example, price information relating to utilities, cost of living and municipal taxes were combined in a self-service platform informing users about their cost of living

A great example of how data-driven journalism - or an engaging marketing campaign - can be created from in public data sets

  • Users self-select variables to compare
  • Visualizations show the relative position of each town

UpStream Oil & Gas

UpStream Oil & Gas, a global energy news source, had a need to display streaming real-time commodities on their front page.

Our solution was a small widget at the bottom of their banner, adding important information about oil and gas prices from commodity exchanges.

Dagens Næringsliv

DN is the largest financial newspaper in Norway, and an important partner for Norkon. Norkon has developed a range of visualizations for DN building on a principle of "relevance by self-selection".

In this example, property prices in Norway has been plotted on a map widget allowing houseowerns to track the value of their houses.

  • Custom data visualizations relating to a particuluar visualization
