Posted by Erik Hoffmann almost 9 years ago, 0 comments
We overlook data, and we do not trust it. Instead we humans prefer to operate based on intuition. This may work in life-threatening situations as coming across a mountain lion. It does not work when we try to plan or otherwise organize.

The Curse of Kelvin

Posted by Phil Green almost 9 years ago, 0 comments
People wrongly interpret Kelvin’s comment to mean, “If you cannot measure it, you are ignorant.” But this is not what he meant. Kelvin was talking specifically about the physical sciences.

Why time stamping is key for analytical and tactical reports and dashboards

Posted by Klaasjan Doeswijk almost 9 years ago, 0 comments
Daniel Senter recently published an article on the Process Excellence Network clarifying the difference between operational versus tactical and analytical reporting. And that it is time for Business Intelligence managers to understand the difference so they can help organizations/ the business to decide on the type of reporting needed and how the information is to be used to determine data refresh frequencies, metrics for analysis and reporting type. The title of his article is therefore ‘If you want real time dashboards? Make sure you know when to use them’.
