Background and customer pain points

Currently Sisense is capable of showing numeric figures in abbreviated format, but only in the American/European short scale form: thousand (k), million (M), billion (B), trillion (T). In east Asian countries, there is a different scale form, so viewing information in these k/M/B/T is very difficult to understand.

Business case description/value

Use case

  1. A user in Europe is creating a dashboard in Insights with an indicator to show total profit in an Indicator form. Let's suppose that the total profit to display is 1,610,000. 2. Europe user formats the content to abbreviate the display in the short scale form. User will see "1.61 M". 3. A user in Japan is creating the exact same dashboard on the same data. 4. Japan user formats the content to abbreviate the display in Asian scale form. User will see "161 万". 5. A user in India is creating the exact same dashboard on the same data. 6. India user formats the content to abbreviate the display in the India scale form. User will see "16.1 Lakh".
