OMB Data Visualization Tool Requirements Analysis: IBM

Slides

Background

  • DRAFT White Paper for OMB Pittsburgh, July 11, 2013.
  • Start With the End in Mind, Avoid Tool and Turf Wars, and Develop Well-designed Spreadsheets That Can be “Dragged and Dropped” Onto a Tool That Creates Statistics and Visualizations in the Public and Private Clouds.
  • Focus on Requirements Analysis by First Comparing Magic Quadrant Leaders and Challengers on Common Data Sets.
  • Spotfire Was Able to Reproduce Birst, Information Builders, Logi Analytics, Microsoft, QlikView, SAS, and Tableau Data Visualizations With Dynamically Linked Visualizations.
  • Broaden This Requirements Analysis to Include More Sample Data Sets and Tools.
  • IBM Is a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant.

Gartner BI Magic Quadrant: IBM
IBM Analytics Strengths and Cautions Excerpts

  • Analytic Answers was another significant offering added recently. Gartner has predicted that, by 2014, up to 40% of analytics projects will be service-led and software-supported. IBM, delivering "analytics as a service," will enable organizations to mitigate one of the most critical nontechnical barriers to advanced analytics adoption: the lack of analytical skills. Analytic Answers is not simply a cloud offering that enables a shorter time to market, or turns capital expenditure into operating expenditure to encourage business analytics adoption. Rather, it is an analytics platform with prebuilt, domain-specific data models and embedded, relevant, statistical and advanced analytical algorithms that offer answers to industry-specific questions. This offering will enable IBM to effectively leverage its complete analytical assets — including analytical software, hardware, analytical knowledge, industrial practices, intellectual property and cloud delivery model — to allow maximum user access to IBM advanced analytics capabilities.
  • Performance remains a concern, although primarily with the Cognos 8 BI base. 
  • References continue to cite the Cognos products as more difficult to use.

My Note: I added from the Many Eyes FAQ: Many Eyes was created in 2007 by the Visual Communication Lab, part of Collaborative User Experience group, at IBM Research. It is brought to you now jointly by the Visual Communication Lab and the IBM Cognos software group.

Some Conclusions and Recommendations

  • Semantic Community Was Unable to Import An Excel File Into Many Eyes 2013 Beta and Create a Simple Graphic Without Crashing the Google Chrome Browser.
  • Spotfire Provides Similar Features To IBM Many Eyes (Original and 2013 Beta), But the Author Finds Spotfire Much Easier and More Reliable to Use.
  • MindTouch and Spotfire Are More Versatile Than IBM Many Eyes For Mashups.
  • Semantic Community Will Continue to Use The Gartner BI Magic Quadrant Leader Tools and Their Sample Data Sets and to Recreate Visualizations and Dashboards.
