Art of BI: Collaboration is the Answer

By | In Art of BI, Big Data, Business Intelligence | June 19th, 2015

As the busy work week comes to an end, we at Art of BI are looking forward with great anticipation to the coming week. We will be joining other “ODTUGers” at Kscope 2015 in the beautiful Hollywood, FL.

With Business Intelligence projected to have a market value of more than $20 billion by 2018, it is of utmost importance to stay on the cutting edge of new developments in the BI realm. Our collaboration technology can help you do just that.

Our flagship product is BITeamwork, which is a plug-in that enables comments and annotations within your Oracle BI application. This product is essentially a platform that creates a culture among BI users that will enhance the depth of interaction, communication and overall involvement between business units beyond the capabilities of Oracle’s out-of-the-box BI applications.

With BITeamwork, we’ve taken the very basic concept of commenting within a dashboard or adding annotations to your data, and what we have found is that everyone’s ideas of what collaboration is varies. When releasing BITeamwork to your team, a “Splash Page” can be very helpful.

A Splash Page gives the people in your organization awareness of any topic. In the photo below, you can see how you can do that on a scheduled frequency if you want to as well.

After creating a Splash Page, you have the ability to show this to your end users. This is especially helpful when you first release OBIEE, or when you are launching a new report or dashboard. Several of our clients use this feature with links to videos to make the page even more helpful.

This is a seamless and very dynamic way to collaborate. Creating a better workflow and a culture of collective decision making is our primary goal. As we head out to Florida, we look forward to meeting with as many other BI users as we can to find out what is and is not working for you. We want to show you how collaborative BI can improve the depth of interaction within your organization and really take you to  the next level.

See you there!

  1. “Creating a better workflow and a culture of collective decision making is our primary goal.”

    BI shouldn’t be this exclusive, “members only” business application. All departments in your organization can benefit from data and insights from business intelligence platforms to make better business decisions. A company-wide culture that supports BI inter-departmentally supports improved decision making throughout all aspects of the business.

    1. Pat,

      We completely agree. With our BITeamwork solution, we’ve created a concept called Embedded BI which allows existing BI customers to expose their curated BI content outside of the standard BI portal, so that those even outside of the BI portal system can be exposed to the enterprise analytics KPIs and even dynamic interactive reporting capability of the BI tool.
