Thanks Frank for the wonderful presentation and insights.

Prospector

Evolving algorithms - that will cause our executives to pause.  They are still in the create once and use forever!  A new mindset

Prospector

Empowering the worker in the field also opens up the necessity for security of the data, both connection to server as well as just seeing confidential data on a screen

Prospector

YES, love to link browser data to our constituency as well as geo-location

Prospector

One big issue we have had is trying to tag an ip address with a geo-location.  Any help would be appreciated

Prospector

Web metrics and related social media is a very open spot in our society.  We are just trying to grasp this analytics

Prospector

thanks again, excellent presentaion and look forward to your next seminar.

Prospector

linking social media with geospatial information to develop a location centric sentiment analysis...interesting thought.

Prospector

again, sorry to miss this one live, would love to dive into the security aspects of mobile analytics.

Prospector

pretty amazing to see the evolution of mobile analytics go from a simple visualization and presentation tool to an actual mobile application performing calculations on the go.

Prospector

well presented - thank you Frank and A2

Prospector

Business beneifits slide enforces doing the planning work upfront and a tailord approach to the business  model/context enables better marketing programs and forecasts to identifying new business opportunities.

Prospector

Algorithms must evolve over time which confirms that an internal SME and Data managers need to constantly monitor types of data, changes in requirements, etc. and make improvements over time.

Prospector

Brings attention that Analytics projects requires alot of planning; platform, gathering data, analysis of data, making it interactive and visual presentation so that management and customers see the outcomes.

Prospector

Business benefits overview the business drivers and what management wants to view in relation to a given Analytics project.

Prospector

Speaker wasa informative and provided a framework for the major elements that are nessary to get started.

Prospector

Interesting.

Prospector

Thanks Frank for the wonderful presentation

Data Doctor

Is mobile datas will be helpful for BYOD and analysis

Data Doctor

Can location based datas can help for business

Data Doctor

Mobility is a major fasctor in all sort of business

Data Doctor

And thank you for the program, again--

Prospector

thank you. Good info

Listening a second time

Data Doctor

until next time  :)

Prospector

Thank you

Master Analyst

thanks for the presentation.

Prospector

Thanks Frank!  and You too Beth!!

Prospector

excellent presentation!

Prospector

Bye everyone. Have a nice day !!

Prospector

Thank you Frank for your presentation today. I found it really useful !!

Prospector

good day to all

Prospector

Thanks everyone! A bientot!

Prospector

thank you for a good info

Prospector

A great note to end with Frank. Thanks!

Blogger

@Frank: I see, any data can be useful depending on your goal. Great

Prospector

@Beth. Thank you :-)

Prospector

@Beth - Sure - everyone go forth and mine the magic out of data - there is gold to be found in the most unlikely places!

And Frank, any last points for our attendees?

Blogger

@Hospice - very true - but it depends on the business case - if you are a telco, you may want to track signall strenth and battery life, but no other business may care about that

Folks, we're just about out of time for today's lecture. Any last questions for Frank?

Blogger

@rnimmaka: Thanks for sharing that information

Prospector

thanks for the examples rnimmaka.

Blogger

@rnimmaka - great examples!

@Frank: In my opinion not every data generated by mobile devices can be useful in BI, right?

Prospector

pkalruaod -- ah, cloud. that was going to be my followup. Where does cloud fit into all of this?

Blogger

@Beth - well - database size is important - it directly correlates to processing power - that said, the idea of using Hadoop or other "slice and dice" data systems brings parralell processing power to large data sets 

Just for the benefit of the people !! I can think of two usecases which are currently used at my company. One mobile app developed for field marketing people to capture useful information from the prospective customers during major launch events and other one is, company app being used for capturing the location of employees for doing demographic study analysis for new campus movements !!

Prospector

I guess nobody -- or nobody willing to speak up!

Blogger

sincew we are doing cloud computing I do not think that would be an issue...

Prospector

@Frank: I see! Thanks!

Prospector

Who out there is pursuing a platform right now?

Any thoughts on the size of datasets involved in mobilzing analytics, in terms of delivering results over the network? Is this something to be especially aware of when delivering visualizations?

Blogger

@Hospice - well, there is no brief definiotion - but pressed for one, I would say data generated by mobile devices or data that represents the movement of data creation elements through an environment

Ah, I didn't realize that.

Blogger

@beth - many of the mobile dashboards are browser based using HTML5 / Ajax - making the mobile platform chosen less of an issue 

@Frank: Can you briefly define "mobile data" for Business Analytcs?

Prospector

@Pierre - there are countless ways to visualize the data - so, the real question becomes what type of data are they trying to visualize? So, more importantly, one has to know what type of questions they want to ask of the data - before selecting a particular visual reprsentation

 

Frank -- I would imagine most are starting with iPad support? What other device OSes do we see analytics tools vendors supporting for mobility today?

Blogger

Hi Frank, you mentioned about developing a visual approach for the enduser - can you provide an example for    for forming enduser questions that can tease out what kind of visualizations may be useful? It seems like we have a variety of ways to display data. 

Blogger

@Beth - most of the platform players are embracing mobilitly, so upgrading an existing platform to tackle "in the field" analytics is pretty much a sure thing in the not too distant future

absolutely agreed, pkilaruaod

Blogger

If the analytics are deployed and a offsite person can query and get answers. In most cases that is planned. The main advantage of having mobile analytics is able to respond to questions that arise randomly. Then the offsite person needs to be trained well... in using the app.

Prospector

Regarding platforms -- does mobilizing analytics require a distinct platform, or should users be looking to make sure their existing analytics tool vendors have or are moving toward mobile support?

Blogger

Data only has value if you can trust it - that may mean requiring an SLA for purchased data to hold the providers accountable

@beth @ frank how do you ensure that we gather quality data and can you recommend any approach fot it?

Prospector

Elasticisty should be another platform check list - the ability to grow and shrink the storage as needed

Excellent point as data quality translates to value.
Data Doctor

@Frank: Right, it is important to know the sources of the data 

Prospector

Ideally, the mobile worker will have "controls" such as date sliders, data check boxes and so forth to empower the analytics dashboard

So self-service should be a platform checklist item. What else?

Blogger

Frank -- right, validating the data (trusting it) is important no matter what, true?

 

Blogger

@Beth - Yes, it is very important that mobile worker has the power to maninpulate the data to develop scenarios that fit a given situation 

Let's chat about validation of data - here it takes a measure of due dilligence - in other words, know the sources of the data 

Frank, I have a few questions for you! For one, do you think mobilizing analytics calls for a self-service interface that allows mobile users to manipulate the data more so than if they were in the office?

Blogger

Hello everyone - I wanted to keep the presentation vendor nuetral, but I am more than happy to talk about solutions here

 

Thank you. Very informative
Data Doctor

2 ET next Thursday...

Blogger

same time on Thursday?

 

Prospector

I think you just have to know where to look! :)

Mobile data do have value, but I wonder how easy to get

Prospector

Some businesses are leveraging the value today but many others are missing the boat. How does your company fit in?

Sorta hard to argue the point, isn't it?

Mobile data has value...

Do we all agree?

I first extrat the citation graph between the papers, then extract citation sentences that mention a given tool, or techniques described in the papers and then compute the similarity scores between the citation sentences and the text they refer to in the cited papers

Prospector

"validate data sources" ...how do you do that?

... or the whole thing!

Blogger

ekondo1 -- right! whether you're looking for the patterns in the data or delivering results to the business!

Blogger

How do you create them?

I think visual helps, but we're still in a state where what kind of visual varies.  if we help the enduser articulate what the end use of the data is, we can develop a visual display that is valuable in the field.

Blogger

what kind of visualizations do you use?

Hospice, this is an aside, but have you read our Dashboard piece on NLP? Seems it's be up your alley...

Blogger

i agree; nothing beats the visual approach

 

Prospector

It has nothing to do with mobile data

Prospector

The data I work with is mostly about citation linkage and semantic link (computation) between terminologies in research papers. 

Prospector

do you folks agree? "nothing beats the visual approach?"

 

Blogger

Hospice -- I was just going to ask!

Blogger

I meant "I usually visualize my data with gephi or R".

Prospector

I usually my data with gephi or R.

Prospector

Delivering the appropriate information in time for a decision to be made...that is the bottom line, isn't it?

Sorry your audio died. It must be a computer/firewall issue

Interesting point on visualization.

How do you visualize your data?

Thanks Beth. Noreen, thank you for the overview!

Blogger

Empowering workers with mobile data. 

Prospector

audio died again

 

Prospector

"GIS is frequently confused with GPS because it is a more generic acronym (Geographic Information System) used to describe a more complex mapping technologythat is connected to a particular database. Because it's generic, it is a broader term than the GPS in its technical sense."

 

@Beth: I think they deverve a tap on the back

Prospector

How Mobility and Analytics Deliver ?

• Design Platform for Mobility

• Protect Intellectual Property

• Validate Data Sources • Empower Workers with Knowledge ?

• Service Customers Better ?

• Identify Trends

? • Discover New Markets Your thoughts??

Pierre -- Geographic Information System

Blogger

To Frank - What is a GIS ? (sic)

Blogger

How much credit should we give Apple and the iPad for driving the push for mobilizing analytics?

Blogger

@Pierre: "How public is it if it is backed by a for-pay source.": Good question

Prospector

Business benefits of Mobile, according to Frank:

Better Understanding of Customer Trends

Reactive Marketing Programs

Enhanced Engagement

Forecasting

Deriving New Business Models

Identifying Opportunities

Frank's note about public sources highlights a concern about outsourcing information that should be public, like the info in a library. How public is it if it is backed by a for-pay source.

Blogger

It is important to gather the right data 

Prospector

How have you benefitted from mobility?

 

I am more astounded by how much influence APIs is leading to much of the mobile data analytics. Means really seeing how a source influences measurement assumptions and the interface being created for BI

Blogger

oops! "combine the two"

What are you trying to do:

Are you Looking to give Analy4cs to Mobile

Workers?

Are you Looking to Analyze Data Generated by

Mobile Users?

Are You Looking to Combine the

I am astounded how much data we are producting from our apps and mobile use

As Frank notes, mobile analytics can mean different thing to different people. How do you guys define it?

Blogger

So, theoretically Hospice, your mobile data is a product for use in others' analytics...

Blogger

@Beth: Are you doing any analytics/BI on that iPad yet, Hospice?

Not really. But I use to allow applications to use my localization data.

Prospector

I can't even talk on landlines anymore-I feel too tethered

@Beth-- That's right!

Prospector

Are you doing any analytics/BI on that iPad yet, Hospice?

Blogger

we use some from google analytics

Prospector

Hospice -- you're taking advantage of mobility! :-)

Blogger

Great, audio works fine on iPad

Prospector

Anybody incorporating mobile data in analytics yet?

Blogger

I can keep a list of top questions

But feel free to start chatting now-- and note any questions you want to ask

Frank will join us for a chat after the audio portion

refresh browser works!

Prospector

I've received coffee a long time ago but never a free t-shirt. I've never been asked for my T-shirt size. 

Anytime, Anywhare Analytics? Sounds like a BYoD adventure to me. 

Data Doctor

Where is my " FREE ' T-shirt that I was promised?

Prospector

I have been generating Responsive WordPress.org sites for Mobile use as well as ipad and android and Microsoft pads. I use php and asp.net when necessary.
