Here is a quick-fire puzzle quiz for the festive season, no prizes, just for fun.
It is all about speed. How quickly can you answer all these questions? Nothing too tricky, all answers probably searchable on Google, but where is the fun in that (and you are not going to get through them quickly if you start searching).
Over the last two weeks I posted a series of articles which explained four key lessons which I believe the BBC Weather site teaches us about dashboard design and delivery. For those who didn’t have time to read all four posts in depth, here is a quick summary of what they covered:
This was supposed to be a series of three blog posts exploring the lessons that the BBC weather site can teach us about BI in general and dashboards in particular (the first 3 posts were on the future of dashboards, Big Data and HTML5). However, after finishing the original series I realized there was a fourth lesson staring me in the face, which should have been more obvious than the first three, because it is all about predictive analysis.
Timo Elliott posted a blog a couple of days ago where he explains why he feels investing more in end-user training for BI tools is a good, low-hanging investment.
It is not often I disagree with Timo, but in this instance I do. I have an increasingly strong conviction that the only BI which will ever truly succeed with business end-users is BI which needs no training at all.
