Wave Analytics is the next big thing…

How cool is this tool!  I saw the results of a Wave “demo” for a client of ours recently and was absolutely blown away.  Pre story – we had a client that had Sales Data – in a bunch of spreadsheets- now this is a Fortune 500 company, so for starters – spreadsheets?  Really?  But beyond that, trying to get these 5 or 6 spreadsheets to “join”, and to make sense (Orders, Order Lines, Invoices, some performance data – all kinds of stuff) at the Account level, or product level or wherever was just a mess.  We ended up faking a bunch of it to get through the demo, and of course, the first questions was “why is the data not real?”  A Mess…

 

So, SFDC ran the data into Wave – first, getting it into Wave was pretty simple – and from what I saw – fast.  Then, once that data was loaded and referenced, Wave began building it’s own views – basically recommending data out of the box without any user intervention!  Changes were made pretty quickly, and the Dashboard of the info was set up in a few hours.  It was absolutely amazing.

 

Now, It’s not cheap, but if you have big data – or data all over the place – that no one in your organization can make any sense of, you owe it to yourself to take a look for sure.  Check out pricing here and stay tuned…
