Collaborative BI: Human Intelligence is your biggest untapped competitive advantage
Halo Rings doesn’t just make it easy to share dashboard views with colleagues, but also delivers the tools to discuss what you’re seeing, solve problems and track the results without ever leaving Halo.
If you think about it, the value derived from “Business Intelligence” comes not from the data itself, but the ability to interpret, interact with, and learn from that data. And the best way to accomplish this is to give your people the tools to share their insights and knowledge as simply and easily as possible. Nearly as important, however, is ensuring that knowledge and insight is captured and connected to the data so when you return to it later, it’s all still there.
Halo Rings is an innovative component of Halo BI’s Prism Dashboard Visualization Tool. It’s an integrated collaboration tool built right into your dashboard views.
Now, rather than having to create a report or grab a screenshot of an important metric (sales margins for example) and email or IM it from another application, you can tag the metric, click on the Rings window and begin a conversation without ever leaving the view. Everyone’s conversation is captured and tied to that view, so you can return to it at any time and have all the information and insight together — no rifling through emails, meeting notes, or IM logs.
Halo Rings is more than just a conversation tool, it’s a powerful knowledge-base, task manager and progress-tracking system too. With Rings you can ask your colleagues questions, share information like documents and photos, and even assign tasks and track results all while keeping the information connected to specific metrics and dashboards.
