Overview

In this blog post, I demonstrate how to build a hypercube-based autonomous BI dashboard. I explain the current-state landscape of BI reporting and data analytics technologies. I provide details on the current limitations of existing BI approaches to automated reporting. I then define the characteristics required for a next-generation BI analytics and reporting framework capable of meeting the current and emerging reporting requirements that most businesses face. I provide a worked example demonstrating how to develop a solution which answers these emerging challenges. In the worked example, I show how to compute hypercubes from raw data and use those hypercubes as the basis for n-dimensional drill through dashboards. I explore various transformations and aggregation techniques across hypercubes to demonstrate how to summarize data across multiple dimensions. I show the power of Flow's multidimensional visualization and pivot engine by creating visualizations which allow for 5+ levels of drill-down. I finish the example by designing an interactive dashboard and showing how to distribute the completed report across an organization. Finally, I cover how to deploy the developed workflow to Flow's agent framework to continuously and autonomously execute our reporting tasks on a schedule.

Overview

Flow enables you to build dashboards containing a variety of elements including tables, charts, reports, and data summaries, among others. This post focuses on two methods you can use to build, populate, and update dashboards. I show how to add a new dashboard, then how to create and add chart result using one of the sample datasets provided. Next, I provide an in-depth discussion of adding workflow generated results to a dashboard.

Overview

In this post, we'll build a six-step workflow that produces Pivot Table and Table results. It shows how to load data, use expressions to derive time-period values from a date field, build a hypercube using those time-period values as dimensions and, finally, how to create and view pivot table and table results using the hypercube.

Overview

This post presents a basic introduction to multi-dimensional analysis and analytics-oriented processing using Flow. It discusses data sets, measures, dimensions, and hypercubes; then it provides a step-by-step example of building a workflow to analyze some fictional A/B test data.
