07 Dec How to build a live data transaction report
Data is cheap, insight is priceless, as they say…
Connecting a modern BI app to an open data firehose to build automatically updated visuals can make that transition happen.
The first step in the process is thinking about meaningful questions, so a report can be developed to deliver relevant answers.
With the world’s attention span getting shorter, the analyst will also want to deliver these with a minimal number of charts. This is where the data artisan skills become useful…
Open data sources are everywhere and, in many cases, they come in a format that is not accessible to all potential users (xml, JSON, not just Excel), which means that only patient/ data literate users can interrogate the information and extract meaningful insights.
Feel free to play with the charts and filters to see the effects!
