When I created Atlas Insights, I really decided it was important to rethink how businesses engage their employees in the use of important business metrics.  But it was more than that.  It was also how software should be designed, developed and sold.  That is why Atlas Insights is so different from any software vendor claiming to have a mobile business intelligence solution.
  • We don’t have hundreds of employees building the software, we didn’t need that.
  • We don’t have huge marketing departments to get the word out, our customers do that.
  • We don’t have hundreds of sales people calling on every account pressuring you to purchase, we don’t believe in that.
  • We don’t have large investors that keep driving us for hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue, we live within our means.
  • While our competitors are not sustainable on hundreds of thousands users, our business is sustainable on a just a few thousand customers.

I built Atlas Insights to be a better solution than any of the big public or privately VC funded software companies.  On a per user basis, we are pennies a day while they are hundreds or thousands of dollars a day.
While they sell their software based on you finding a gold nugget in the mountains some day, Atlas Insights helps all of your employees get focused on what’s important to your business today, which is an investment that returns value every minute of every day.

You will not find a simpler solution to use and the value you get for the money

Sharing my app’s download progress and a BIG surprise I found. #analytics #mobilebi #startup

In June of 2016, I began the effort of building a new mobile business intelligence app called Atlas Insights.  Atlas allows you to take your business metrics and also public metrics with you wherever you might be.  Basically, having your most important metrics available whenever you need them is the mantra .   In October I launched my beta and finished up in December of 2016.  Pretty amazing development speed huh?!  I’ll have another blog on that later.  As I have built this business, I have tried to be transparent and informative via my blog on the startup and software development process as I go along.

In all my years of designing and developing software, one metric all developers want to monitor closely is downloads.  Now with having to support so many platforms from Apple, Google and Microsoft, tracking these stats is actually pretty easy.  Today, I spent time visiting all the app store reporting pages to get a gauge on the downloads for Atlas and I came across VERY surprised.

The following chart is “Installs by Platform“.  Right away you see an amazing slice for Apple!  Now I would say I’m a bit Microsoft biased because I worked there and then I built a business off of them.  Even in my marketing, I’m very balanced in that I market each company platform basically the same.  But I’m just SHOCKED that 75% of my downloads are on the Apple platform.  iPhone you may be thinking?

So let’s break it all down to get an understanding of what makes up those slices of the pie. The next chart is “Installs by Device“. Because Apple made up so much of the pie, if we look at the slices you’ll be shocked to see that MAC/OSX has 57% of the installs!  In all my years of doing analytics and dashboards, the MAC users where never on the minds of the developers.  I saw this as an opportunity and produced a MAC client of Atlas Insights and I’ve been overwhelmed with the response.

Isn’t that pretty awesome!?  I’m going to continue to build for all platforms, but I will push the BEST business intelligence experience on the MAC/OSX that there has ever been!

Seriously, sticking your dashboards onto your mobile phone is just dumb. #data16 AtlasBI.com

I know that 90% of you know that doing this is just a really bad and career limiting idea.  Well, I watched one of the big analytic vendors at their conference yesterday promote their new mobile app that allows you to take the dashboards you developed on your desktop move them to a mobile device.  Why do you have to design for mobile, shouldn’t the data be smart enough to do it itself?  This like 2005 all over again!

When I built Atlas Insights, I really focused on the new generation of agile business leaders that want their most important data wherever they are.  If you design for mobile first, just look at the difference.  Beside instant metrics and the data that matters most to you, Atlas Insights doesn’t require that fleet of consultants to help you create all those screens too!   Our solution is pennies on the dollar to build, maintain and support unlike the solutions from the bigger vendors.
