Well if you EVER wanted to make and take your business metrics mobile, now you have absolutely NO excuse not to.  We are excited to announce our new Cloud/SQL data connector to our Professional subscription of our popular mobile business intelligence app, Atlas Insights.  Using WindowsMAC or our Web apps, you can connect to your business SQL databases, instrument your business metric simply and quickly get those metrics out to your decision makers.

How easy is it?  Let me show you.

Using any of our desktop apps for Windows, MAC or Web, you can create a data connection which you will get presented with the following screen.

Give your connection a name and how often you would like the data to refresh.  Enter your server address and port number.   Port number is important for connecting to your enterprise or cloud databases.  At this point we try to connect and retrieve a list of databases you want to connect to.  Click the Save and Continue button to move to the next screen to build your query.

On this screen, you enter your query that will make up the data for your metric.  You need to make your column names match our column name using AS Actual, AS Target, AS Series and AS Date.   Only Actual and Date are required.  Click the Execute Query button to see a sample of your data returned for validation.  If all looks good to you, use the dropdown to Assign to Metric your query.

Atlas Insights will do the rest updating and getting the latest and most important metric data to your decision makers.   If you would like to take this feature for a test drive, it is available in our Professional subscription which I would be happy to give you FREE access to for evaluation.  Just contact me.

Sign up today and get a FREE 3-month Basic subscription! Download for any mobile device or Windows/MAC desktops and Web and get started without anyone contacting you and bugging you for money.  That’s what we call a worry-free trial.
