Real-time analytics

As streaming data is becoming more popular and 24×7 customer expectations are increasing, companies are utilizing business intelligence tools more than ever. These tools rely on constant data refreshes and daily reports and dashboard visualizing this data. Such analytic systems working in near- or real-time can deliver insights on ongoing situations, and are helpful in making important decisions.

Real-time analytics

As streaming data is becoming more popular and 24×7 customer expectations are increasing, companies are utilizing business intelligence tools more than ever. These tools rely on constant data refreshes and daily reports and dashboard visualizing this data. Such analytic systems working in near- or real-time can deliver insights on ongoing situations, and are helpful in making important decisions.

One can note a spike on the 12th of February after authorities in China changed the way they calculated the figures. Given the evolving situation, the dashboard is being continuously managed and upgraded to build out its capabilities to establish a user-friendly tool accessible by all.

Real-time Decision Making is Essential to Your Business

Businesses invest in data gathering tools such as POS systems in order to have access to all records and information. However, if this data is not being used to make decisions based on real-time data, these businesses will fall short of their competition. For example, companies working in distribution would greatly benefit from being updated on shipments and inventory in real-time. Corrective action can be taken immediately in case something goes wrong. In essence, no industry is exempt from the benefits of real-time decision making. Even if the data is not time-sensitive, real-time dashboards can give you access to the most updated information, with access to historical data and trends.

Interactive dashboards in everyday life

Real-time analytics are not just crucial in business, but have also recently become more popular in spreading information and news to the public. Onest Data has developed an interactive web-based dashboard to track the COVID-19 disease in real-time. The dashboard provides the public with a user-friendly tool to track the outbreak as it unfolds. Users are able to track information on a country and global level, where they can find numbers on the number of confirmed cases, deaths and recoveries. What makes this dashboard unique is in depth analysis on the number of serious cases for each country.
