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.

coffee

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…

When I launched Atlas Insights in the middle of January 2017, I wasn’t sure what the uptake would be on a new mobile business intelligence solution in the marketplace.  Tableau has a lite client, Microsoft has PowerBI client for its dashboards, but would an entrant be worthy enough to jump into the mix?

After 7 months, Atlas Insights just broke a major milestone of over 500 installs!  That is pretty amazing considering we don’t have the budget that Tableau and Microsoft can spend to build a brand.  The goal was “not to be the first to the market with a product, just make it the better than the rest”.  Atlas Insights is completely different because we focus on a mobile-1st experience with actionable data, first and foremost, while other makes you wade through a sea of dashboards trying to figure out what each chart means.

That’s a powerful statement.  Just how long do you spend staring at a dashboard trying to figure out what it means and what you can to do with it?  Too long.

Atlas Insights – “Turn it on and know what is going on.”

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!

Just how true is that statement?  It is probably in the top 5 issues in every business around the world.
