Reporting tool is good at chart & form design, style of landscaping, query interface, entry & report, and export & print. It is one of the tools that are applied most extensively. However, there are quite often complex computations in the report, which raises a very high requirement for technical capabilities of report designers, and is one of the biggest barriers in report design. This article will introduce to ways to solve the complex computations in the report.… Continue

OLAP is an important constituent part of BI (business intelligence).
Understood literally, OLAP is online analytical processing, that is, users conduct analytical operation on real-time business data.
But, currently the concept of OLAP is seriously narrowed, and only it refers to operations such as conducting drilling, aggregating, pivoting and slicing based on multi-dimensional data, namely, multi-dimensional interaction analysis.
To apply this kind of…

There is no question that the USA (in fact, most of the world) would be well-served with more quantitatively capable people to work in business and government. However, the current hysteria over the shortage of data scientists is overblown. To illustrate why, I am going to use an example from air travel.
On a recent trip from Santa Fe, NM to Phoenix, AZ, I tracked the various times:

In most cases with Big Data projects you have to ingest 6-10x more data than has any immediate value just to start and glean value. This creates a large volume of data with no apparent value, and sometimes it is a long time before there is any value if ever. This creates a large expense and a lot of issues for entry, which has derailed a number of big data projects. So be prepared going in that unless you really know your data you will need to ingest and explore to find the value. When you… Continue

Past week I attended a Marketing colloquim where I was invited as a panel member to discuss the new realities of marketing performance and metrics. What struck me was the growing importance of Data across sectors and company size.
