background
Background
  • DRAFT White Paper for OMB Pittsburgh, July 11, 2013.
  • Start With the End in Mind, Avoid Tool Wars, and Develop Well-designed Spreadsheets That Can be “Dragged and Dropped” Onto a Tool That Creates Statistics and Visualizations in the Public and Private Clouds.
  • Focus on Requirements Analysis by First Comparing Two Magic Quadrant Leaders on Common Data Sets (Tableau and Spotfire)
  • Spotfire Was Able to Reproduce All the Tableau Data Visualizations With Dynamically Linked Visualizations.
  • Broaden This Requirements Analysis to Include More Sample Data Sets and Tools.
  • OMB Has Used Birst Which Is a Challenger in the Gartner Magic Quadrant.

  • OMB Has Used Birst and Semantic Community Was Able to Reproduce the Birst Sample Dashboard With Spotfire.
  • Semantic Community Has Used The Four Lessons Learned Using Dashboards in Government and Tufte’s Principles of Design in Recreating 7 of the 11 Administration Dashboards.
  • The FederalTransparency.gov Spotfire Dashboards Are This Data Scientist's Audition for the Recovery Independent Advisory Panel and Show That Spotfire Is Able to Create Multiple Industrial-Strength Dashboards.
  • Semantic Community Will Continue to Use The Gartner Magic Quadrant Leader Tools and Their Sample Data Sets and to Recreate Visualizations and Dashboards.
