Experienced enterprise developer Michael Cornford shares a demo in which he uses Alpha Anywhere to build a business dashboard that delivers analysis and reports anywhere. In this case the client operates a busy clothing e-commerce site.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE DASHBOARD?
The Dashboard is a quick source of weekly data showing sales and inventory and is designed to help management get a better understanding regarding how the business is doing. It can be viewed by country or fabric, price band or season. There are historic comparisons over the last four weeks, the last 12 weeks and more.
WHY WAS THE DASHBOARD BUILT?
Merchandising was spending hundreds of thousands of dollars a month on product. The spreadsheets that used to drive the process were becoming slow and breaking. They had 7,000 plus SKUs and more than a 100 weeks worth of historic data for many of the more established SKUs. The developer produced a dashboard to monitor order vs stock, and provide further BI (Business Insight).
The Alpha Anywhere viewbox has a number of advantages to the developer. A key data source for the dashboard was Redshift. Redshift is very fast and highly scaleable Amazon product. Alpha Anywhere low-code software connects seamlessly to Redshift, making data analysis incredibly powerful.
