Google dashboard for lazy businessman

Categories: Dashboard

Once you start your own business or startup, the very first thing that comes to mind is "How many visitors did my website receive?"

Google Analytics provides tons of metrics and it becomes quite a chore to keep up with all the dashboard pages and filter options. As a small biz owner myself, I went through a phase where I ended up spending significant amount of time checking out Google Analytics

To save time and mental energy on a daily routine task, I asked "What are the most basic metrics I need to measure from Google Analytics?"

The answer pretty much came down as a need to have "one page dashboard that displays various metrics".

What is the true meaning and purpose of Business Intelligence?

Categories: Dashboard

Companies in a variety of industries are still data-rich but information-poor and this ratio keeps increasing every day. The rate of data generation is so high that organizations simply cannot keep up with generating insights out of it.

These enterprises lack the kind of actionable information and analytical tools needed to improve profits and performance. Business intelligence (BI) is the next logical step by management to start thinking about how to capitalize on the potential of BI to improve profit and performance.

Many companies have embarked on the journey of data warehouses and yet failed to use them to achieve BI. If you think the purpose of data warehousing (DW) efforts is to simply keep producing more reports then the organization has failed to achieve true BI.

Show me the money – Business Intelligence

This Business Intelligence article discusses one very important question "Have we lost the true meaning and purpose of Business Intelligence?"

In summary, it says that the bottom line for any Business Intelligence is to increase profit and performance and if done wrong it is absolute waste of time and money.

So if your management is hooked on the Big-Data wagon and fantasizing about the hidden gold behind the untapped data sources such as social media, click stream, web logs etc then it is time to keep the focus on the main purpose of "Business Intelligence". All these systems help us to analyze big data or small data but whether they really impact our bottom line is the question that management needs to keep it as the top priority.

Every decision should flow and trickle down from this focus point "Show me the money!!"
