USPI’s “License Free” Self-Service Analytics Portal

IBIS 2019 Butterfly Banner

Monday, June 17th 11:00am – 12:00pm

United Surgical Partners International (USPI) has moved away from a “Push” reporting model to building out a custom Enterprise Business Intelligence Portal where thousands of end-users can go to in order to see their reports and dashboards or build their own reports that they need to make their necessary decisions to run their business. All of which is completely license free! Utilizing the BusinessObjects Launchpad was the “out of the box” solution but required each user to consume a BO License to access their reports and dashboards. Instead, USPI built an enterprise reporting portal that did not require every user to log into BusinessObjects and consume a license. And because the portal needed to provide the capability of ad-hoc query building that could write-back data to a database – USPI discovered that it is, indeed, possible to accomplish a license-free, home-grown portal that still leverages the BusinessObjects toolset. This session will explore how USPI made this vision a reality.

Using Tableau with WebI: From Novice to Knowledge

IBIS 2019 Butterfly Banner

Monday, June 17th 2:15pm – 3:15pm

As report designers, we need to use the best tool for each job. With more than a thousand hands-on consumers of 32,000+ reports, Web Intelligence is our go-to reporting solution at the University System of New Hampshire. Then came Tableau with its bubble charts and heat maps and dashboards and data stories. Not to worry! Tableau experts were hired so that we, Webi developers, could stay happily ensconced in our reporting world. That is until this year when our supervisor tasked each Webi developer with creating a Tableau solution using Webi data. This case study will walk through our learning process, some pitfalls as well as best practices that we learned, and ultimately demonstrate the creation of a call center dashboard using Webi data and Tableau visualizations.

Using Business Intelligence to Better Understand Ancient Egypt

IBIS 2019 Butterfly Banner

Tuesday, June 18th 11:00am – 12:00pm

Ancient Egyptian civilization spanned over three millennia and started almost 5,000 years ago. While objects like the gold mask of Tutankhamen and the bust of Nefertiti dominate the imagination, modern excavations aim to collect information about ancient Egyptian civilization rather than simply find beautiful objects. In particular, new excavations at settlement sites allow for reconstruction of daily life and social structure by paying attention to potsherds, mudbrick walls, animal bones, and stones. Using many new technologies, excavation methods and material analyses can be more precise and accessible. However, so much of the work remains manual, time consuming, and difficult. But careful data collection and analysis are key for understanding Egyptian culture.

This fascinating session, led by renowned Egyptologist and ceramicist, Dr. Leslie Anne Warden, will discuss the challenges archaeologists face today in looking for the information and trying to piece the past together from pottery sherds and other fragments found during excavations. She will also tell the story of how she teamed up with BI specialists from InfoSol to use a BI dashboard to help in both the collection and analysis.
