Business Intelligence | HUSTING’s COOLBI

If you use LinkedIn and always wanted to dive into the data, my buddy Shish just wrote a great blog that takes you step-by-step process of accessing your data and loading it into Excel for some personal analysis and insights.  Visit his blog for more.

We just did a complete native re-write of our Spotfire Metric’s iPad app which you can download at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/spotfire-metrics-for-iphone/id317112767?mt=8.

The big color coded tiles immediately tell you what is going on and what you need to react to right now.  There is also an indicator in the bottom right that tells you how long this metric has been performing at this level too.

Also, just turn the iPad sideways and you’ll see that metric over time to spot any trends that might be important.

It is super easy to get started over at http://spotfire.tibco.com.  Let me know if you need some assistance.

I’ve been helping out a buddy create a social media dashboard for a bunch of retailers he visits.  Since the Twitter Analytics for Excel ran out of support, he needed another option and asked for some help.

I utilized Plus One Social to pull the data.  This program allows you to search on keywords and then places the data into a desktop database.

Then using PowerPivot, I created a self-serve BI model for the end-user to create their own dashboards.

Then I just easily created some pretty cool looking dashboards.  I think the hardest part of doing it in Excel is just getting everything to line up and look appropriate.  But I think I nailed it.  Comments?

Email should you have any questions.

Okay, this is a crazy but cool example of doing sales funnels in Spotfire.  These are not your ordinary sales funnels.  Inside the funnels are sized bubbles that represent Opportunity Amounts and Probability!   Very cool!

Enjoy, Patrick
