Dashboard and reporting tools: Integration of BI tools in the geospatial domain

  1. 1. Dashboard and reporting tools: Integration of BI tools in the geospatial domain Thierry Badard Co-founder and CTO Colloque AGMQ, Saint-Hyacinthe, October 19th , 2010.
  2. 2. 2intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 About Spatialytics 1.Software editor in Geospatial BI (GeoBI) ● Supports and develops its own GeoBI open source projects (http://www.spatialytics.ORG) ● Will propose a commercial edition (software and SaaS) ● Works with a network of integrators / resellers 2.Solutions integrator in Quebec province ● Consulting ● Reseller of the OpenGeo Suite – Enterprise Edition ● Professional services  Training and support  Developement and integration
  3. 3. 3intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 Business Intelligence (BI) • Business Intelligence applications are usually used to better understand historical, current and future aspects of business operations in a company. • The applications typically offer ways to mine database- and spreadsheet-centric data, and produce graphical, table-based and other types of analytics regarding business operations. • They support the decision process and allow to take more informed decision!
  4. 4. 4intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 Business Intelligence (BI)
  5. 5. 5intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 Business Intelligence (BI) ● Rely on a sometimes complex architecture which may include some robust components and applications like: – OLTP data sources (DBMS, files, sensors, ...) – ETL tools – Data warehousing (DW) – On-line Analytical Processing (OLAP) servers and clients – Reporting tools – dashboards – Data mining
  6. 6. 6intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 Business Intelligence (BI) ● Rely on a sometimes complex architecture which may include some robust components and applications like: – OLTP data sources (DBMS, files, sensors, ...) – ETL tools – Data warehousing (DW) – On-line Analytical Processing (OLAP) servers and clients – Reporting tools – dashboards – Data mining
  7. 7. 7intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 Dashboards • Is an executive information system user interface that (similar to an automobile's dashboard) is designed to be easy to read • Dedicated to track the flows inherent in the business processes that they monitor • Graphically, users may see the high-level processes and then drill down into low level data (often unavailable to the senior executives) • Provide decision makers with the input necessary to "drive" the business • Graphical user interface displays summaries (tables), graphics (e.g. bar charts, pie charts, bullet graphs, "sparklines," etc.) and gauges (with colors similar to traffic lights) in a portal-like framework to highlight important information • Dashboards are interactive and could be updated in (near) real time!
  8. 8. 8intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 Dashboards - benefits • Visual presentation of performance measures • Ability to identify and correct negative trends • Measure efficiencies/inefficiencies • Ability to generate detailed reports showing new trends • Ability to make more informed decisions based on collected business intelligence • Align strategies and organizational goals • Save time over running multiple reports • Gain total visibility of all systems instantly
  9. 9. 9intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 Reporting tools • Reports provide thus some static snapshots in time of the performance/status of the entity you are examining • Reporting tools automate the production of unified reports which join different views of the enterprise in one place • They enable the querying of data sources (OLAP data cubes, Excel files, DBMS) with different logical models to produce a human readable report in different formats (pdf, word, openoffice, Excel, html, …) • While reports can be distributed in print form or via email, they are typically accessed via a corporate intranet
  10. 10. 10intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 Dashboard and reporting tools • A lot of tools exist! • Proprietary vs. open source • E.g. Cristal reports, MicroStrategy, SAP, ... • I will introduce the major open source tools : – JasperServer, JasperReport, iReport – BIRT – Pentaho Reporting, Dashboards and CDF
  11. 11. 11intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 Jaspersoft • http://www.jaspersoft.com • Complete BI suite (ETL, OLAP server, ...) • Open source edition includes 3 tools for reporting: – iReport : report designer – JasperReport : report engine – JasperServer : report portal • Commercial edition adds: – a drag-and-drop dashboard designing tool – Some flash based animated components • 3D animated and advanced charts • Basic flash maps with very few interactions (hyperlinks) – Google maps API integration: just markers on the map!

  32. 32. 32intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 Why do we need geo-analytical dashboard and reports? • “About eighty percent of all data stored in corporate databases has a spatial component” [Franklin 1992] • Enable the exploration of spatial relations between data – To take into account all aspects of data – And then take informed decisions • Some phenomena can only be observed and interpreted by representing them on a map! – Spatial distribution, – Spatiotemporal evolution, etc. • OK … but we do not just need some markers on a map. We need to have: – Rich, complex and customizable thematic mapping functionalities – Drill-down and roll-up capabilities to navigate into the data and correlate/analyze them at different levels of detail – Synchronisation (or not) between tabs, diagrams and maps – A rich and lightweight toolbox to make the existing tools geo-capable or to easily create by its own some geo-analytical dashboards and reports ...
  33. 33. 33intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 SOLAPLayers • SOLAPLayers is a lightweight cartographic component (framework) which enables navigation in geospatial (Spatial OLAP or SOLAP) data cubes, such as those handled by GeoMondrian. • It aims to be integrated into existing dashboard frameworks in order to produce interactive geo-analytical dashboards. • Such dashboards help in supporting the decision making process by including the geospatial dimension in the analysis of enterprise data. • First version stems from a GSoC 2008 project performed under the umbrella of OSGeo. • Licensed under BSD (client part) and EPL (server part). • http://www.solaplayers.org
  34. 34. 34intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 SOLAPLayers v1 • Version 1 was based on OpenLayers and Dojo • It allows: − the connection with a Spatial OLAP server such as GeoMondrian, − some basic navigation capabilities in the geospatial data cubes, − and the cartographic representation of some measures as static or dynamic choropleth maps, maps with proportional symbols.

  37. 37. 37intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 SOLAPLayers v1 • Version 1 was a mostly proof of concept! • It presents important limitations: − Allows only the cartographic representation (no crosstabs or charts) − Works only for one measure and the spatial dimension ! − Offers limited navigation capabilities in the geospatial data cubes − Is able to connect to GeoMondrian only − Extending the framework is difficult due to the lack of flexibility and the poor documentation of Dojo, − Integration with other currently used geo-web and dashboard frameworks was difficult − ...
  38. 38. 38intégration d'outils BI en géomatique L'incontournable en GeoBIOctober 19, 2010 SOLAPLayers 2.0 • So, SOLAPLayers has undergone (and is still undergoing ;-) ) a deep re-engineering! • Version 2 is fully based on ExtJS/GeoExt (and hence OpenLayers) − It will make its integration with other geo/web and BI/dashboard frameworks easier − It provides some new ExtJS components dedicated to GeoBI! − Based on the philosophy for the development of applications adopted by these geo-web frameworks, it allows an easier creation/maintenance of the produced geo-analytical dashboards! − Like ExtJS, it supports internationalization!
