But today, with data stored not only on premise but increasingly in the cloud too (e.g. Salesforce, Marketo, Eloqua, Google Analytics), how do you access all of this data to create a consolidated view of your business?
The news yesterday that YouTube has dropped Flash in favor of HTML5 for its default video player is clearly another nail in Flash’s coffin. YouTube engineer Richard Leider was reported saying “the time had come to ditch the aging Flash in favor of HTML5”.
With most business users expecting to access their business intelligence content across a variety of devices and with Flash playing so badly on mobile, we think the time has come to ask yourself: is it time to drop Flash in favor of HTML5 dashboards?
David Bailey said: “The best advice I ever got was that knowledge is power and to keep reading.”
So to make sure you have access to all the knowledge and power you can get, we’ve gathered last week’s top business intelligence and data articles in a list for you. Handy and useful!
John Hancock said: “The greatest ability in business is to get along with others and to influence their actions.”
So who are the biggest influencers in Big Data? The guys at Onalytica have compiled a list of the top 101 influencers in the field, and we’re happy to share their list with you.
Is your hero missing? Feel free to add them to the list!
We live at a time where there is vastly more information available than ever before. Tech trends like the Internet of Things are taking us into a world of connectedness, and everyone from Gartner to IDC are predicting big stuff for “the Things” in 2015.
In fact there is already far too much information out there for us to be able to meaningfully take it all in. However it is increasingly important that we use as much of this data as we can to avoid being left behind in both our work and our personal lives.
When it comes to getting the most out of a software investment we know that different people work in different ways. Some people are happy to work through a series of “how-to” videos at their own pace whereas others prefer the personal touch that a 1:1 training and mentoring program offers.
As you start to create interactive dashboards with DecisionPoint™ For Excel we want to give you the flexibility to get up to speed in the way that best suits you.
Back in November we launched DecisionPoint™ For Excel, a rapid dashboard creation tool for small to medium enterprises and business departments that lets non-programmers turn their Excel data into beautiful dashboards that can be shared with anyone on a web browser, tablet or smart phone.
We’ve been delighted with the response to DecisionPoint™ For Excel and I’m excited to share with you some feedback from one of our early customers, San Luis Obispo (SLO) County Homes.
So how do we keep our users’ attention?
