Bringing you the top stories from DSCallards News Room hot off the press!
6th December 2012 – DSCallards, Devon-based Business Intelligence (BI) specialists, delivered another successful Masterclass on Wednesday 5th December 2012 at SAP Business Objects House, Maidenhead, UK.
‘Demystifying Dashboards and Visualisation’ kicked off with practical advice on how to get the best out of dashboard implementations with a team of experts talking the delegates through real-life case studies and explaining how they had adopted best-practice methodologies to roll dashboards out across a number of organisations.
Guest speaker, Donald McCormick, Chief Product and Marketing Officer, Antivia, presented “Dashboards: From ‘at-a-glance to interactive” and explained how dashboards are evolving quickly from simple at-a-glance overview to fully interactive ‘apps’ and, in their new form, could be set to revolutionise the way we see Business Intelligence (BI) and finally break through the 20% user adoption barriers. The lively session explored the reasons behind this change and how they will affect BI strategies in the future.
Ray Kemp, Technical Director, DSCallards, sought to demystify the newly released SAP© Visual Intelligence. This rich, highly interactive, tool is designed to allow business users to manipulate and explore information directly and to ask any question without the need for pre-defined queries, reports or dashboards, taking the strain off IT.
“’Demystifying Dashboards and Visualisation’ was designed for senior IT professionals as well as business executives involved in bringing information to life through visualisation techniques. From the delegate feedback received, we certainly managed to deliver on this expectation’, said Adriane Gillies, Marketing Manager, DSCallards.
