A good practice while rolling out new platform-products is to provide working example or ready to use templates along with the product offering. AgilePoint already provides industry standard applications which can be downloaded from the App Store. For the upcoming Analytics Center release, we will also be providing sample dashboards and reports.
The key ingredient to build a report is the data source. Microsoft provides three open databases under MIT license. These are:
In addition to data source setup, pre-built reports have been made available, neatly grouped into categories and sub-categories. These ready to use reports showcase lot of features of the Analytics module. You are free to edit these reports. We encourage you to build more complex reports using these sample data sources. The # of sample reports will keep growing till the GA release date. There will also be a bunch of canned reports provided OOTB.
Next, let’s fast-forward to release launch. AgilePoint will provide report setup guides and customers can choose precisely which sample reports they want to deploy. These guides will specify the steps for setting-up the data sources and importing these pre-built report templates to Analytics Center.
