Feel very happy and motivated that the PublicBI team has been shortlisted as one of the finalist in the EU Datathon 2018 competition organized by the Publications Office of the European Union. For more details about EU Datathon see the official website  https://publications.europa.eu/en/web/eudatathon/speakers .   Congratulations to all the finalists and all the best! This now also means that I have to put some of my planned articles (example GDPR) on hold so that I can work on the Datathon topic.

AWS Innovate 2018 - Interesting and Useful

Image
Today I received my certificate for attending the AWS Innovate 2018 Online Conference on 19th July 2018. I had managed to attend all of the sessions from the Big Data and Analytics track and couple of sessions in the AI and Machine Learning track (see agenda below). All of the sessions that I attended were quite interesting and useful. If you have missed don't worry there is still an option to watch the sessions using the on-demand option for free.  See  https://aws.amazon.com/events/aws-innovate/  . If you have attended other tracks and can recommend a must watch session that would be great. I would like to sincerely thank all those who were involved in making this event successful. I can imagine the hard work that would have gone in making this happen based on my experience in organizing the first ever BI Online Conference ( PublicBI BIKON May 2018 ). Looking forward to more such events from AWS team.  AWS Innovate 2018 Agenda Screenshot - Click to enlarge

Enterprise Reporting and Analytics Platform vs Data Visualization Tool

Image
Unfortunately quite a lot of people have misunderstood or do not have an understanding of how these two; Enterprise Reporting and Analytics Platform (ERAP) and Data Visualization (DV) categories of tools are different and that it isn't right to compare a tool that belongs to one category with another tool that belongs to another category. I see similar questions in Quora.com all the time. And I recently read a short article in LinkedIn that compares Microstrategy (ERAP) with PowerBI.  So, unable to resist myself from commenting I commented something like this "Thanks XYZ for the article. In my humble opinion, as these two tools belong to two different categories the comparison isn't fully right. Microstrategy is an Enterprise Reporting and Analytics Platform (ERAP) whereas PowerBI is only a data visualization tool. Microstrategy can be compared with tools like SAP BO, IBM Cognos, etc as they belong to the same category. As you probably already know Microstrategy (

500 Days of IBI

Image
For all those people who are following my blog, especially on the IBI topic, I am happy to announce that I have now completed 500 days of data capture. For all posts related to IBI see  IBI posts . Just by being disciplined enough to capture the data for 500 days and the fact the I managed to do it and still continue doing it, there is some sense of achievement even though nothing is achieved.  So today I spent some time in data analysis, reflected upon the days that went by using data. Went through the details of the mistakes that I have made, the days I was not happy, etc to understand if there is a recurring pattern and to tell myself that I shouldn't repeat those. I also made some changes to the data capture template and included new charts too.  I have now added a "Year" column in the data capture template because now I have data for more than a year.  With this addition there is possibility to compare same months across years and also to compare year on yea
