With the Web version of Atlas Insights, you can upload your data from a .CSV or .XLS, you can upload your data and refresh from Google Drive and you can also with one click Copy or download a CSV or Excel version of the data too.  That’s right, you can’t do this with other cloud system.

Inline editing is very important when working your data in the cloud.  But it is also very important that if you have access to data here and want to take it offline and work with the numbers in Excel you should be able too.  Well, with Atlas Insights you can!

It’s your data, not the cloud vendors data…

Amazon’s Snowball is a smart box for shipping tons of cloud data

image

The new Snowball appliance is purpose-built for efficient data storage and transfer. It is rugged enough to withstand a 6 G jolt, and (at 50 lbs) light enough for one person to carry. It is entirely self-contained, with 110 Volt power and a 10 GB network connection on the back and an E Ink display/control panel on the front. It is weather-resistant and serves as its own shipping container; it can go from your mail room to your data center and back again with no packing or unpacking hassle to slow things down. In addition to being physically rugged and tamper-resistant, AWS Snowball detects tampering attempts.

The interface looks pretty good.  Clean and modern.  Amazon is very good at making big data very fast via the browser.

Smart Visualizations

Amazon is one of the best at scaling so it will be interesting to see benchmarks on the performance of their offerings.

What is the social sentiment on the @domotalk launch? Generally positive. w/@plusonesocial

image

I pulled a little over 3,500 tweets today on the domo event going on. They have been an interesting company to watch because they have been so quiet about their solution. Domo does an excellent job in their marketing department on getting out the social message and others riding that wave.

Overall, the message is very positive with over 72% of the tweets either neutral and positive.  You can also see the sentiment by day too. 

If I add the keyword “joshjames” it trends very negative.  Why you may ask?  I wondered too.  It is because there is some kid with the handle joshjames_96 that has a lot of very negative tweets about nothing.  Sad generation…

Any you may ask how did I create all this?  I used Plus One for the social data and Excel for creating the sentiment.  I would love to use DOMO for the charts, but I don’t have access.  Smile

Power BI–Let’s Take it MOBILE!–Part 3 #analytics #bigdata #mobilebi

IMG_0042

Well, after spending some considerable amount of time with Power BI, I finally figured how to make it purr for me.  Something’s like creating dashboards from reports is not spelled out that easily.  Or, maybe because I didn’t want to read or watch a bunch of videos.  I just want to get my data onto my mobile device.

IMG_0043

Right now, you can only use Power BI on an iOS device like the iPad or iPhone which just happens to NOT be my default phone.  I have Android which I have been told that it will show up sometime in the near future.

IMG_0047IMG_0051

I got my Metrics dashboard to show up on the device.  BUT, why don’t I have the cool preview of the dashboard?  Must be beta I guess, but the preview would go a long way in helping me know which dashboard to click on.  It does show, it just takes 12+ hours I guess for the cloud service to render the images.

 

IMG_0046IMG_0045

Pretty cool.  It looks very nice on my device.  I tend to look at data from a performance management perspective because I like to compare against my goals or targets.

IMG_0048IMG_0050

This feature I really wanted to explore.  But I guess I have to have a specific view to actually use it.  The view has to be created in Power View to actually use it?  I figured I could tap on it and who-la.  NOT.  Oh well, it is promising though.

IMG_0052

If there are specific charts you like when viewing on your device, you can save them as favorites.  I like these feature because most people only track 7 things a month and now these are available with one touch.

Email me with questions.  It looks promising.

Enjoy, Patrick
