The “Be Your Own Data Analyst” has been great for software companies that provide dashboarding tools, but do they really provide the kind of insights you need to manage your goals and objectives when running your department or business?

Oh sure, you can tell me that your department has 5 or 10 dashboards that provide some insights into their performance.  But seeing historical trends is just one piece to running a truly great business.  To be one of the great companies, you need to set goals and objectives and then monitor your progress against them.  Dashboarding software doesn’t really do a good job of this.

Oh, am I’m sure someone is out there trying to selling you their new machine learning AI that will tell you what the numbers should be.  The AI will crunch through your bigdata and actually find the golden nugget. But again, that AI needs goals to be able to work it’s magic against too.

While times are good, now is the BEST time to reassess your department and business objectives and set the goals you need to hit to meet those objectives.  Your software needs to provide a simple Green, Yellow and RED indicators on how you are against those objectives allow you to adjust in real-time and not after the dashboard refreshes next month.  It really can be as simple as that.

Just like your morning coffee, millions of people will be logging onto their corporate networks and checking the status of their business through metrics.  With all the dashboarding products made by the biggest vendors, that job has gotten much harder over the years.  WHAT?!  Yes, that is a strong statement, but true.  We used to have just a few dashboards to review, now we have 25 personal dashboards scattered across many servers or in the cloud that we have to find.  Never mind the corporate wide dashboards on another 10 servers.  People are emailing PDF’s from the dashboarding tools and don’t forget those finance people emailing you Microsoft Excel spreadsheets too.  You get my drift…

One Of Warren Buffett’s Favorite Metrics Says Stocks Are Way Too Expensive.

warren-buffett

I was searching on metrics that Warren Buffett likes to track and I found this article on Forbes about U.S. Total Market Capitalization and how he uses it to determine if the market is to hot or just right.

The Buffett Indicator takes the stock market’s market capitalization and divides it by the US Gross Domestic Product. From an interview he did with Fortune in December 2001 Buffett said “For me, the message of that chart is this: If the percentage relationship falls to the 70% or 80% area, buying stocks is likely to work very well for you. If the ratio approaches 200%–as it did in 1999 and a part of 2000–you are playing with fire.”

Well, if you download Atlas Insights, now you can have Warren’s favorite market indicator right on any of your mobile devices (Apple or Android) or desktops (Windows or MAC) and you’ll be just as informed as Warren.

Discovering insights and mining data can be a lot of fun when you have access to good public data.  It has been fun to watch the public data discovery segment grow and grow over the years.   In all my years of doing data analysis and development, public data insights is just a big pain in the butt.  Inaccurate data, data out of date, pay services and limited views of the data makes it very frustrating.  Then you watch and listen to the TV and Radio financial shows and it makes you wonder where they got those numbers.  I always found it a pain and wanted better access to those numbers, so what should I do?  Add it to my app.
