More data, less time. It’s the mantra every manager is
thinking and it applies to news as well as data.
Every day, we look for, publish, and/or curate articles
that we think hoteliers can use when it comes to data
and hotel analytics. But with so much to read and so
little time it’s helpful to have a recap of the best content
from the past month or so.
In this slideshare we summarize the most relevant,
important, and interesting news so hoteliers can swipe
through and pick the most important articles to read.
We hope you enjoy.
Regards,
Clay, Martin, and the SnapShot team.

How to Choose
Big Data Analytics
Tools for a Hotel.
What to consider when
looking for a new solution.
Many hoteliers, general managers, and
revenue managers wish they could get a
better handle on available data to improve
guest experience, revenues, and gather
valuable business intelligence. Yet Excel can
sometimes feel frustratingly limited. A more
robust, sustainable, and useful solution is
necessary. But what solutions are out there?
And how do we go about choosing the right
big (and small) data analytics tool for your
hotel?

Data security has been a huge issue
recently. Just look at the issues Starwood,
Hilton, and Hyatt have all had in the past
six months. So how can hotels protect their
prized clientele, the business travelers?
And why are some hotels' systems so
vulnerable? It seems patchwork
integrations between POS and backoffice
systems, plus lack of technical education
are quite often to blame.

We have a soft spot for TED talks and this one is great. Consultant Philip Evans gives an illuminating lecture on how the
massive amounts of data available to us will shape how the entire world operates. While the medical industry is a prominent
example, it’s very easy to imagine how this explosion in access to data and insight could transform the hospitality industry.
And if you’re short on time skip to about 07:30 or so.
Watch on TED
How Data Will Transform Business.
A TED Talk on how data will shape the future of all business.
With more data available than ever before,
not using it would be a wasted opportunity.
The problem, though, is it’s not easily
accessible. I mean, humans don't process
numbers like computers. Data needs to be
organized and designed so we can use it and
understand it. This Medium post is a great
primer on why design is so important when
interfacing with large quantities of data.

Driven Interfaces.
The future is data, designed.

”Wulf Van Alkemade
Insights from
The Soap Man:
Hotelier Wulf Van Alkemade
Before analytics, before Excel, there was the
soap index. Created by an Amsterdam-based
amenities supplier, the soap index became a
go-to rubric for a secret club of hoteliers who
used it to predict hotel trends to a surprising
degree of accuracy. We chatted with its
creator, hotelier and international man of
mystery, Wulf Van Alkemade about his track
record predicting major trends in hospitality
and the so-called “Soap Index.”

This article does a great job at breaking down
the seemingly complex terminology behind
data, explaining what's really going on and
what really matters. These are the kind of
rules that are so great, you can apply them to
just about anything. Some of our favorite
takeaways: "If you can’t explain it to a 5 year-
old, then you’ll have a tough time selling it to
others," and, “The focus should not be on the
tools [you use], it’s on the core message of
your story.”

7 Habits of Highly
Effective Data
Analysts
Skills everyone can use.
As hoteliers we don’t always consider data to be a fundamental tool in our daily operations. We’d rather focus on making
our guests happy than crunching numbers. So why does data matter to hotels? Because at the end of the day data is just
information. When we look at the right data in the right way, we can not only ensure our guests are having a great stay, but
we can optimize revenues, occupancy, and organizational efficiency.

A Guide to Hotel Data and Analytics.

intelligently. That's why we built SnapShot

analytics tool that presents a comprehensive
overview of your hotel data on a powerful yet
intuitive dashboard. Everything you need in
one place: PMS data, benchmarking, pricing,
web analytics, and social media stats. Dig as

Hotel Data and Analytics News - Feb 2016

  • 1. This month’s must reads in Hotel Data & Analytics News www.snapshot.travel news@snapshot.travel @snapshot_demand Kurfürstendamm 212, 10719 Berlin
  • 2. More data, less time. It’s the mantra every manager is thinking and it applies to news as well as data. Every day, we look for, publish, and/or curate articles that we think hoteliers can use when it comes to data and hotel analytics. But with so much to read and so little time it’s helpful to have a recap of the best content from the past month or so. In this slideshare we summarize the most relevant, important, and interesting news so hoteliers can swipe through and pick the most important articles to read. We hope you enjoy. Regards, Clay, Martin, and the SnapShot team. Suggestions and feedback are always welcome at news@snapshot.travel Editorial A monthly recap of hotel data and analytics news
  • 3. Analytics software will soon be as common as Excel “ ”Christian Chabot, CEO of Tableau Image source: Tableau How to Choose Big Data Analytics Tools for a Hotel. What to consider when looking for a new solution. Many hoteliers, general managers, and revenue managers wish they could get a better handle on available data to improve guest experience, revenues, and gather valuable business intelligence. Yet Excel can sometimes feel frustratingly limited. A more robust, sustainable, and useful solution is necessary. But what solutions are out there? And how do we go about choosing the right big (and small) data analytics tool for your hotel? Read on our blog
  • 4. Data security has been a huge issue recently. Just look at the issues Starwood, Hilton, and Hyatt have all had in the past six months. So how can hotels protect their prized clientele, the business travelers? And why are some hotels' systems so vulnerable? It seems patchwork integrations between POS and backoffice systems, plus lack of technical education are quite often to blame.

  • 5. We have a soft spot for TED talks and this one is great. Consultant Philip Evans gives an illuminating lecture on how the massive amounts of data available to us will shape how the entire world operates. While the medical industry is a prominent example, it’s very easy to imagine how this explosion in access to data and insight could transform the hospitality industry. And if you’re short on time skip to about 07:30 or so. Watch on TED How Data Will Transform Business. A TED Talk on how data will shape the future of all business.
  • 6. With more data available than ever before, not using it would be a wasted opportunity. The problem, though, is it’s not easily accessible. I mean, humans don't process numbers like computers. Data needs to be organized and designed so we can use it and understand it. This Medium post is a great primer on why design is so important when interfacing with large quantities of data. Read on Medium Designing Data- Driven Interfaces. The future is data, designed.

  • 8. If you think a spreadsheet is going to run your business, get out. “ ”Wulf Van Alkemade Insights from The Soap Man: Hotelier Wulf Van Alkemade Before analytics, before Excel, there was the soap index. Created by an Amsterdam-based amenities supplier, the soap index became a go-to rubric for a secret club of hoteliers who used it to predict hotel trends to a surprising degree of accuracy. We chatted with its creator, hotelier and international man of mystery, Wulf Van Alkemade about his track record predicting major trends in hospitality and the so-called “Soap Index.” Read on our blog
  • 9. This article does a great job at breaking down the seemingly complex terminology behind data, explaining what's really going on and what really matters. These are the kind of rules that are so great, you can apply them to just about anything. Some of our favorite takeaways: "If you can’t explain it to a 5 year- old, then you’ll have a tough time selling it to others," and, “The focus should not be on the tools [you use], it’s on the core message of your story.” Read on Dataconomy 7 Habits of Highly Effective Data Analysts Skills everyone can use.
  • 10. As hoteliers we don’t always consider data to be a fundamental tool in our daily operations. We’d rather focus on making our guests happy than crunching numbers. So why does data matter to hotels? Because at the end of the day data is just information. When we look at the right data in the right way, we can not only ensure our guests are having a great stay, but we can optimize revenues, occupancy, and organizational efficiency. Read on our blog A Guide to Hotel Data and Analytics. A 101 guide to understanding types of data and analytics for hotels.
