ATG Business Intelligence and Analytics – Screenshots

31 03 2010

Here are some screen shots of the ATG Business Intelligence and Analytics catalyst asset for those who would like to see some of the dashboards that are included in the asset. For detailed information about the asset and information on how to download this asset use the following link.

Each of these three  dashboards was developed using Report Studios professional authoring mode.  It probably took me more time thinking about what content to include on the dashboards then anything else. But once I knew what content made the most sense the development went rather smoothly. I guess it goes to show you that sometimes the hardest part of developing reports/dashboards is figuring out what content to include and how best to represent it (ie text, graph).

One of the other greatest things about using a tool like Report Studio is that you can rapidly develop a prototype for what you want to show and get immediate feedback. Then turn around and make adjustments to your design and get more feedback. In other words it a great tool to use for agile development. And thanks to all of you the provide valuable feedback!

One of my favorite things about these dashboard is the uses of conditional formatting to draw the consumers eye towards the problem areas. As you can see from the screen shots ones eye is immediately drawn to the ares which are under-performing because the format of the data is altered. Usually by changing the color. In someplace the color intensifies from yellow to a bright red as a function of  the change in magnitude of a particular KPI . You can see this in particular on the Sales Performance Dashboard for example.

And now the screen shots (click-to enlarge):

ATG Business Intelligence and Analytics – Catalyst Asset

10 03 2010

Recently I’ve been working on a catalyst asset to demonstrate the business intelligence capabilities of ATG Customer Intelligence (ACI) called the ATG Business Intelligence and Analytics module. Actually there are a number of features included in this catalyst asset that aren’t currently part of the product. I’ve listed some of them below.

  • Unified metadata model allowing the authoring of query/reports across platform, commerce, search and service center data.
  • Over 50+ predefined calculations available for report authors to use. Smart data sorting and formatting.
  • Three performance management dashboards. Discover ‘how’ the business performing at a glance.
    • Sale Performance Dashboard: Analyze multi-channel sales
    • Product Performance Dashboard: Merchandizing analysis of product performance, including customer profile and co-buys (market-basket analysis).
    • Site Performance Dashboard: Analyze traffic, search and conversion data
  • Two reporting packages available to author report with.
    • ATG (Query):  Author reports or ad-hoc queries using simple query interface
    • ATG (Analysis): Perform advanced data analysis using dimensional query interface. Slice and dice data using dimensional functions and operations as if interacting with a data cube.
  • Easy to consume. Installs in minutes in existing ACI 9.1 environment.

The asset is available for download on the ATG Community site.
