These capabilities result in transforming your organization's attitude and behavior towards fact based decision making, eventually resulting in a cultural shift that sees the usage analytics for strategic advantage.
Key enabling capabilities in Human engineering
The implementation of Human Engineering facilitates the enhancement of user interaction to enable a hassle-free business analytic process. The following easy-to-use and easily adaptable features allows you to leverage this necessity.
- Role-based analytics
- Guided analytics & learning systems
- Intuitive user design
- Collaborative decision making
- Self-service capabilities
Human Engineering is more focused on making BI the human process that it is. Few examples are:
Q&A: An intuitive user design with more emphasis on human language than mathematical based on a pre-built context based question bank incorporating greater usability for larger enterprises. With features including downloadable detailed reports, it is ideal for search-and-publish applications.
Dynamic search and auto suggest: These features enable you to interpret reports and go beyond facts and figures through search and explore capabilities.
Self-service: It offers a dynamic and interactive portal configuration wherein all components are available through a common wizard integrated with BI and non-BI enterprise information like data sync status, new product launches, new store launches, promotion calendar and much more. All answers at your fingertips.
Storyboarding: It is an interactive feature that embraces cross-pollination of analytic best practices and helps to capture a collection of role-based scenarios and decision processes. It features capabilities to record and playback analytic processes multi-report analysis process, filter parameter and selections, drill paths, views and KPI activities like setting of filters, analysis etc, and export it to a PPT document. This tool also enables future playback of the recorded activities to be used for reference, training and collaboration.
See-also linked KPI suggestions: The Guided Analytics feature drives users to explore all perspectives of a related analysis through pre-built and easily customizable scenarios. It enables a comprehensive analysis process and accelerates learning through best practices and suggestions to ensure the best possible decisions are taken.
Sticky notes: Enhanced features like dynamic tool tips for measuring calculations, easy lookup available at all times, user-based personalization and keyboard shortcuts, helps speed up interaction time for familiar users.
