  • Data monetization is not about selling your data Recorded: Aug 8 2017 2 mins

  • Decisions you can trust: Getting Data Quality right for Analytics Recorded: May 23 2017 43 mins
    Nigel Ivy, Leopard Business Solutions & Carl Edwards, Yellowfin
    We live in the age of data. Organisations gather increasing quantities of data, but not everyone knows how to use it well.

    Analytics can be worthless, counterproductive and even harmful when based on data that isn't high quality. It doesn't matter how fast or sophisticated the analytics capability, you won't be able to turn data into better decisions with poor data.

    With a growing number of companies investing in analytic tools to visualise their data, there has never been a better time to look at the quality of your data.

    Join Leopard Business Solutions, the data management experts and Yellowfin, a global analytics vendor as we discuss the way to making business decisions based on data you can trust.

  • What happened to real innovation in the BI market? Recorded: Apr 3 2017 2 mins
    Glen Rabie, CEO, Yellowfin
    Two recent releases that spring to mind are Tableau’s new colors and Qlik’s special font.

    Don’t get me wrong. The colors look great. The font’s very readable.

    It is the way they trumpeted the arrival of these “innovations” that really caught my attention. Lengthy blog posts about the effort they went through to design their colors and the color sets, the science behind using the default colors. A bunch of fanfare and marketing about how it’s a special font designed just for analytics.

    Obviously lots of resources, time and passion went into these projects. They’re proud of them. And that’s great! Vendors should be excited about the products they build – if you don’t love them, why should anybody else?
  • Self-service is the biggest lie in BI Recorded: Mar 22 2017 2 mins
    Glen Rabie, CEO, Yellowfin
    Why does BI have such low adoption rates? Simple: vendors have been selling the wrong product to the wrong audience.

    Don’t get me wrong. The modern generation of BI delivers a fantastic experience for the data analyst. The problem is that the business user has no real interest in BI, other than the end insights that help them do their job better. Data preparation, discovery and report building are not “self-service” activities, and they never will be.
  • The future of BI is analytical apps Recorded: Mar 10 2017 4 mins
    Glen Rabie, CEO, Yellowfin
    Decision-makers love data. But, they want it to be relevant to them and ready-to-use. Sometimes in the BI [Business Intelligence] industry, we get so caught-up with our love for data, that it’s easy to forget that most people love data discovery as much as they love visiting the dentist.

    This is where analytical apps come in.

    Watch this short video to discover how analytical applications are the future of BI.

    Business intelligence has gone through multiple iterations in the past few decades. While BI's evolution has addressed some of the technology and process shortcomings of the earlier management information systems, BI teams still have a ways to go.
