And new to our educational videos in Off the Charts is - Use Your Dashboards to Tell a Story. Enjoy.


Architecture - Deploying Dundas BI on Multiple Servers as a Server Farm 

A commonly asked question when talking about architecture is if Dundas BI can be deployed in a clustered or farm environment. Typically you would want this type of setup when you have mission critical content requiring high uptime of your Dundas BI server. Learn how to set up Dundas BI into a farmed environment to help protect from hardware failure - which causes downtime - and to help manage your performance load.

Best Practices for Development Architecture in Business Intelligence

Architecture when developing is just as important as it is for deployment. In large-scale software development, you need to separate the instability of developers doing work and users viewing content. Specifically, in business intelligence, you need to weigh in the cost and complexity of having separate architecture points. In this video, we’ll learn about proper development methodology and how it can be applied to a business intelligence tool, we’ll help you understand the concept of an N-Tier Architecture and why it is important, and we’ll also learn best practices when developing business intelligence content.

Stop Treating Business Intelligence Projects as IT Projects

Ekaterina Sycheva,
Sr. BI Consultant at Dundas 

One of the most common mistakes companies make, is treating their BI initiative as an IT project, when in actuality, it should be treated as a strategic business project. Yes, data and analytics projects will always rely on technical expertise and IT support, however, they should primarily be driven by a business need. When evaluating the success of a BI project, the primary benefits should always be seen from the businesses side. The BI project results you should be expecting and striving for would be elevated business performance, better decision making, increased competitive advantage, and optimized return on investments. If your BI project didn’t impact your business, it either wasn’t a BI project or it was a BI project that failed.

Use Your Dashboards to Tell a Story

When someone says, “business intelligence”, what usually comes to mind are dashboards and reports. But did you know that you can use business intelligence tools to tell stories and give presentations?

In this video, we take a look at how Dundas BI can be used to tell a story!
