Collaborative BI is a Reality
Your BI can now be engagingly better.
Whether you’re an analyst, a CFO, or a casual BI user, telling the story about your data from your perspective will change the way people see and share information within your Company.
Inline Cell Comments – The Pure Comment Integration.
An always visible and easily editable comment for any pivot table or standard table report. Oracle BI report developers and power users can easily create an maintain this functionality through a simple API readily available when creating standard report columns. The commenting API allows changes to features, editing, background color, size of the comment box, and more.
BITeamwork helps tell the story about your data.
When users are empowered to socialize thoughts and perspectives within Oracle BI itself, a new level of actionable intelligence can be achieved. With BITeamwork the conversation can also be extended past the Oracle BI application and easily exposed outward to other social networks such as Yammer, Chatter, or the Oracle Social Network.
Annotate – Think Excel comments but on Dashboards.
Leave a comment in any cell of a table or pivot table object. A user is now able to enter comment mode, select an individual cell within a dashboard table or pivot table object and annotate. And because this logic is built on the same BITeamwork framework, all cell comments can solicit replies, be assigned, secured, etc. Cell Comments can also be customized. The color can be changed and custom icons can be used in any combination.
Secure comments for all or no one to see
Got Security? Allow only specific users permission to view/read a comment or leave open to ‘Everyone’. Without a doubt a commenting and collaboration solution would not be complete without the ability to restrict comments to certain groups, users, or application roles. BITeamwork leverages the existing BI system’s security model and it adds an extra layer for securing your comments by application role, user, taxonomy/category of a comment, a specific prompt value or simply open for all to see.
Collaborative BI creates recognition and rewards user engagement.
Dashboard and Annotation comments can be voted on and “liked” by other users giving the comment an aggregate positive ranking. This not only denotes user participation but states the fact that the comment is insightful to the analytical context in question. As a by-product, the user who created the comment gets rewarded but all users involved with the comment have the recognition for engaging and building knowledge within the BI system. It’s a complete win-win. Can you smell the ROI?
A solution that grows with your business and your BI
You work hard, you work smart, your business grows and so do your analytical needs. And BITeamwork grows right along with your ever-growing array of data sources, dashboards, and reports. A BITeamwork license lets you boost productivity, reinvigorate a stagnant BI implementation, and organically accelerate user engagement for your analytics. One way BITeamwork ensures this is by providing an intuitive administration interface embedded within the BI system portal to manage it all. Yes, we thought of that too!
Extend BI with CRM and Social Networking
Collaborative BI with BITeamwork is the only means to efficiently marry your enterprise social network with your BI dashboards and reports. Entering a comment on an Oracle BI dashboard automatically (depending on user settings) creates a comment on the social network on which your company has already standardized. This provides a cohesive relationship for collaborating between the two investments in software that your company has already made. It also boosts productivity and encourages adoption of both systems as there is an immediate presence of continuity within your corporate analytics and the means for collective decision making and awareness via your enterprise social network. BITeamwork currently supports the major enterprise social networks and is flexible enough to adapt to any social network that your company may use.
