TDWI Senior editor Hugh Watson takes an in-depth look at how Mozilla uses Metric Insights to create their own analytics portal. Mozilla’s analytics portal provides timely, reliable, and accurate information to its users across the company. The success of the project was due primarily to the leveraging of the four main components of Metric Insights’ BI Portal platform:
- A centralized portal
- An enterprise distribution engine
- An anomaly detection and event-based alerting layer
- A managed alerts interface
Doing so allowed Mozilla to engage its users with the right data at the right time, while still observing existing corporate data quality and governance standards. As a result, the portal now helps multiple organizations work together in a tight-knit community toward common objectives.
