    Examining the Importance of Context for Every Story

    You’ve heard it said, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” While there is some truth to that, a picture or even a thousand words doesn’t always tell the whole story. Stories need context—a description of the situation in which something happens. Everything we do in life is informed by context. So, why don’t we use context very well in business?

    When it comes to BI features, don’t let pretty hide the truth

    Tableau misses the mark as a BI tool for the enterprise. They’ve attracted the attention of many power data analysts for their myriad of different visualization types, allowing complex data to be visualized into something more consumable. Problem is that Tableau was built as a visualization tool first and an analytics tool second.

    Tackling bye weeks and injuries with our BI Office storyboards

    Bye weeks and injuries are perhaps the most difficult challenges a fantasy football owner faces during the regular season. With that in mind, I created a storyboard in BI Office with the express purpose of helping me navigate bye weeks and injuries. My goal was to create a tool that would a) enable me to rapidly identify players who are injured or about to go on bye and b) efficiently identify the best free agents available to replace those players.

    Examining if Big Data is Worth all of the Hype

    I’ve never liked the term “big data.” It feels like a contrived term, born from opportunistic vendors anxious to sell more hardware and software. Certainly, we have seen an enormous growth in the sheer volume of data being produced today, and yes, that is what most people think about when they hear the term big data. However, when I think about big data, I think more broadly about its potential.

    Building the Next Generation of Business Intelligence

    The other day, I was thinking about BI and its adoption rate by the business. For the past couple decades, business intelligence has been one of the top enterprise initiatives, often one of the top three. Still, though there have been innovations in technology, the way companies use data hasn’t changed much. I sense that is about to change in a big way, which made me wonder whether organizations are ready.
