In 2020, however, contining to rely just on dashboards for your BI needs isn't enough. Why? Data is growing exponentially - in both size and complexity - within every business today. Manually keeping track of performance and searching for insights has become difficult for many users, and it's fostered new expectations - to be able to do more with analytics - including making it faster and easier to keep on top of changes or opportunities.

Recently, we took another look at our Chicago crime dataset to see what was different in crime as a result of the COVID-19 lockdown and what we found was fascinating. This is a dataset provided by the City of Chicago that tracks any type of reported crime. We often use it to demonstrate the power of Yellowfin. The first thing we saw was that a lot of crime went down. This chart shows crime rates in Chicago over the past two years.

The way that people do business in Japan has radically changed as a result of COVID-19. Historically, the Japanese have been very much about face to face relationship selling where you establish relationships and build trust but now everything has to be done remotely or online. Like everyone else, the Japanese are really keen to keep doing business so they've actually embraced the remote way of doing things which has been quite interesting to watch and had some unexpected benefits.

You rely on data to make your strategic business decisions. So you need to be certain that the data is accurate. You need to make sure that you have consist and trustworthy data from input to insight.

Yellowfin is a global Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics suite of products, dedicated to solving real enterprise analytics challenges and helping business people understand not only what happened, but why. Founded in 2003 in response to the complexity and costs associated with implementing and using traditional BI tools, Yellowfin delivers the only enterprise analytics software suite that offers industry-leading automated analysis, storytelling, and collaboration.

The Yellowfin Analytics Suite consists of five components that can be used either individually or as part of an integrated solution. They are:

Yellowfin Data Prep – Users can connect to a range of data sources, such as relational databases, Hadoop, NoSQL, spreadsheets and Web APIs. Data is merged and transformed so it’s accessible by any analytics tool.

Yellowfin Data Discovery – With Yellowfin Data Discovery, users can analyse data using spreadsheets, database or web applications. The Assisted Insights feature uses machine-learning algorithms for automatic answers faster, which saves the headache of manually combing through the data. Insights can then be published and shared with Dashboards, Stories and Storyboards.

Yellowfin Dashboards – With Yellowfin Dashboards, users can track key performance indicators (KPIs) in real time. It also includes the Assisted Insights feature for finding faster answers. Yellowfin’s dashboards are slick, customisable and highly interactive, providing the perfect way to monitor your business at a glance. You can quickly apply filters, sub queries and use drill through, down-down or drill-anywhere to find the detail you need fast.

Yellowfin Signals – Yellowfin Signals applies machine-assisted automation to monitor live data continuously in the background. It looks beyond the dashboard, searching for anomalies and data outliers that indicate something is different. Its alerts are automated and delivered as changes happen. Yellowfin Signals keep business leaders informed and provide an early-warning system for analysts, helping them to deliver insights to the business, much faster.

Yellowfin Stories – Yellowfin Stories enable users to create compelling long-form analysis that provide context to the numbers. Within a blog-like format, users can add live or static reports, embed external media (such as images or videos), and write their narrative to explain the story within the data – and a create common and consistent understanding across the organisation. It is also the first-ever cross-vendor storytelling product that lets you easily embed reports from multiple dashboard vendors, to create fully formed stories. With Yellowfin Stories, businesses can create common and consistent understanding across the organisation.

In 2018, Yellowfin ranked in the Top 5 across all 15 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms and was scored a leader in ‘Embedded BI’ and ‘Operational BI’ in the BI Survey from BARC.
