Improving BI Capabilities Using an Information Centric Approach

Delivering actionable information to improve decision making capabilities, should be an implicit and fundamental goal of any Business Intelligence initiative. In my role as Retail Practice Advisor, I have seen many companies fall well short of this goal, largely due to their underlying approach.

Companies need to consider, and approach, BI as an enabling technology and seek to integrate all available data and develop the relevant analytics, unfettered by their existing reporting portfolio. Utilizing an information centric approach to guide the design, measurements and solution architecture enables quantum advances in business insight and analytic capabilities.

Self-Service Quick Tip: Create a Rolling 3-Day Timeframe Within Visual Insight 10 Without IT’s Help

The addition of “Derived Attributes” constitutes a massive upgrade to the v10 Visual Insight tool, but I had a hard time wrapping my head around it conceptually. It wasn’t until I ran into a couple of specific situations where I really started to understand some new possibilities that weren’t available in the old Visual Insight. Hopefully, this post helps you see a situation or two where derived attributes might save you some headache.

Data Governance, Data Stewards and Data Custodians: What’s the Difference?

The healthcare system business and technology environment is pushing organizations to move beyond traditional, reactive and silo-based data management approaches to a managed – even predictive – approach that treats their clinical, operational and financial data as a strategic asset and uses it to create business value and advantage.

Traditionally, healthcare understood all too well what it took to manage assets such as treatment facilities, clinical staff, and patient relationships. However, when it comes to data, healthcare often fails to implement the responsibilities and accountabilities needed to manage it effectively. The result is deficiencies in data availability, accuracy, timeliness, protection and accessibility. Additionally, when employees aren’t certain who is responsible or where to go for data management, they begin to churn and become misdirected as to what is process related versus what is a technical deficit.

Adding Custom Properties to D3 Visualizations in MicroStrategy 10

Previously, we published a video showing how easy it is to add new custom D3 Visualizations to MicroStrategy 10 in less than a minute. After creating a D3 visualization, you may find that users want to format the widget. Instead of making code changes for each dashboard, you can add properties to the visualization that make it customizable. To do this, you will need an already completed D3 visualization. For my example, I will be using a Scatter Plot d3 visualization that was created for a client. Based on the data they had per dashboard, they wanted to format their axes, add a legend, and/or change the size of their data points.
