What I learned in today’s Visual Intelligence TweetChat

Today Timo ELLIOTT hosted a Visual Intelligence Tweet Chat, for the EMEA region.  If you missed it, you can see this nice visualization or check out the tweetdoc which is like a transcript.

What did I learn?

I said I didn’t understand the current SAP Data Challenge going on and Andrew Fox provided this link to the Casino Challenge that offered some tips.

I learned I could turn on the HTML5 viewer by changing my preferences inside Visual Intelligence:

Pre-HTML5 View:


Then I went to preferences and clicked on the HTML5 viewer flag:


Now I get a nice HTLM5 viewer:


There was a good discussion about Predictive and Visual Intelligence (Predictive Analysis comes with Visual Intelligence, so both cannot be installed on the same machine).

What is coming in the next release?

SAP’s Thierry AUDAS shared this:

And no matter how hard we tried, Timo wouldn’t share any announcements coming for SAPPHIRE

  • Thanks Tammy good post as always and a good session. Here are some other points that I took from it:

    1) windows 8 support most likely coming in 1.0.10

    2) SAP are investigating the ability to combine visualisation into a single view (very happy on this one)

    3) data cleansing rules that are applied are automatically applied to new data that is entered in a project - didn't realise that

    A quick point on HTML5 view, this does have limitations on performance and the number of data points. I think this will be a case by case scenario.
