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

applemac_mobilebi

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!

Dashboards done DIFFERENT! Next-Gen Information Workers UNITE! AtlasBI.com #analytics

atlaswebversion

In my years of doing business intelligence, one thing has been constant.  Reporting and Dashboards haven’t changed in nearly 25 years.  Sure, there are some new chart types and animations, but that is about it.   This type of reporting solution has been fine for the Boomer Generation and half of the X-Generation, but not the Millennials.

Wow, that is a crazy statement, right?!  Nope.  This new generation of business information workers look at data differently than the previous generations.  Does this new generation of business workers get excited to sit down and fire up SAP, IBM or Oracle applications?  I don’t think so! They basically consume nearly 80% of their business information via a mobile phone which means information needs to be accurate, informational and in an instant.

“Dashboards and data have to be re-thought for the next 10 years!”

When building my new Atlas Insights app, I wanted to provide this new generation of information worker with access to metrics in minutes that other traditional vendors provide in weeks or month.  I focused on building an app for EVERY platform and that includes iOS, OSX, Android, Windows and Web so that no matter where a person might me, their metrics are available to them.  The metric tiles are instant views into the heartbeat of the business.  The metrics become your living business logic nutted down into a view you can see and understand in seconds and make the right decision.

That is why Atlas Insights is completely different than ANY business intelligence reporting solution from the BIG vendors.  As proven many times in technology history, innovation comes from the little startup that is agile and not the big elephant in the room who is slow.

Go!… NOW!!!  Download for ANY computing device you own!

Have fun!  Patrick

If you don’t know your numbers, you don’t know your business. Atlas Insights is now launched!

Just how true is that statement?  It is probably in the top 5 issues in every business around the world. If you don’t know your numbers, how do you know you’re on budget?  If you don’t know your numbers, how do you know how much your product costs to produce? If you don’t know your numbers, how do you know what each person contributes to the bottom line? I could go on…

After 5 months of non-stop development and testing, I’m happy to announce the launch of Atlas Insights for Apple (iPhone/iPad, MAC), Google Android, Windows (Desktop, Phone, Hub).  Atlas is focus on making your business more agile when it comes to getting the data that matters most out to your employees so that they can make better decisions faster.

The best thing about being an independent developer again is I can work on multiple projects at the same time.  In the morning I’m working on my mobile applications and in the afternoon I’m working on my VR/AR app.

The screen above is the fundamental infrastructure that is shared between 3 different apps I’m working on.  3 apps basically use the same 50% functionality and the remaining 50% is unique business logic to those verticals.  I look forward to showing you more in the near future.

Stay tuned, Patrick
