Emerging concurrence on BI
By Hitesh Shah at 23 Jun 2010 - 18:23

There appears to be some concurrence emerging on BI front in the BI community. Such concurrence can be like


1. MS office (and MS excel in particular) integration with application is identified as important first & foremost component of BI for large and small enterprise equally.


2. As the company BI requirements grow, people can explore and deep dive into collaborative software Sharepoint , data warehouses , reporting tools and services etc .


Here are the links from where above conclusions seems to be emerging.


Office 2010 heeds BI propagation


Don’t dismiss Excel in your BI strategy


Microsoft Promises BI For The Masses With PowerPivot For Excel



Even Infor is buddying up with MS . So users may not have to worry for office integration at all and depend on any 3rd party products !!


Excel based dashboards Sample
By Hitesh Shah at 17 Jan 2010 - 19:00

Online dashboards are frequent user queries / reports with set of all inter-related questions capable of being answered by the dashboard under user control (and not the user under control of dashboard).


Online Multi-dimensional modeling, online slicing & dicing ,charting & graphical analysis (thermostat, speedometer ,charts etc ) , drill-down to details for exceptional item etc are some of the essential features of dashboards.


Here is a sample of an excel based dashboard which gives online trial balance in multi-dimensional format with possibility to drill down to details from any database through ADODB.


Here are the links one can use to study , understand ,develop and use XL based dashboards. based Trial balance dashboard report.docx


Getting graphs /charts with symbols like thermostat / speedometer etc are very easy. One can see umpteen online resource like following in the internet.

Free Excel Add-ins from Oracle / Microsoft & others
By Hitesh Shah at 21 Mar 2009 - 17:47

While working on analysis services found certain good Excel add-ins available freely. Though some of the add-ins are not useful to us as we already have long established smart programs to accomplish much more than these add-ins do , I indicate the same here for those who may wish to use such approach for their excel integration with their database ( whatever it be ).


Excel Assisted reporting strategy for Baan customers
By Hitesh Shah at 1 Mar 2009 - 10:25

Here is a blog on a reporting strategy for baan complemented with Excel load clients. This blog discusses various approaches to reporting in Excel and ingredients of successful Excel assisted baan reporting.



One should read this blog if:

  1. one is very much comfortable with existing authorizations and semantic layer in Baan (Read baan data dictionary ) technically ( table/domain /field codes ) and functionally (descriptions )  and
  2. one wishes to capitalize on  existing learning and knowledge of existing semantic layer in Baan (technically as well as functionally )  and do not wish to invest (or waste??) in learning / migrating /adopting / translating / maintaining new semantic layer for reporting
  3. one is very much adept at using Baan reporting and programming for routine documents  and
  4. one’s users enjoy the freedom, flexibility and functionality of spreadsheets (which may be freeware also) for analytical purposes.
  5. there are sufficient Office licenses already with company on PCs with high CPU and memory ( far exceeding basic Excel requirements and which have become norm rather than exceptions ) in one’s place and there is high need to optimally utilize  these resources  and to reduce the load on servers .


One whose objectives are different OR who don’t have any objectives only OR who is extremely satisfied with their current reporting already.
