Making Your Analytics Actionable

Share Article

Intlock and Guest Host Joel Oleson hosted a Webinar and successfully conveyed the importance of making analytics Actionable and also showed how it is done.

The key idea that we had here at Intlock is how we could make better analytics for SharePoint, beyond what comes out of the box

On Wednesday May 22nd, Intlock organized a webinar with guest host Joel Oleson, famously known as SharePoint Joel, on Improving the SharePoint Experience. The webinar is now available on this link and has been very well received. The hosts Joel Oleson and Yarin Negri of Intlock, managed to nicely convey the importance of making analytics actionable. Joel introduced the necessary issue of the intranets going mobile and how this has to be present in analytics. Later, Joel addressed design and usability, and Yarin topped it off with some impressive features from CardioLog Analytics and the new Engagement Package.

In Wednesday’s webinar, Joel Oleson kicked off the discussion by giving an excellent overview of the increasing use of mobile devices for intranet portals, and presented some insightful report cards; these not only showed how many users use mobile and other devices, but also how they rated the usability of SharePoint on those devices, and subsequently their browsers. Joel emphasized that Analytics needs to be actionable and that the metric data needs to have actionable benchmarks. However, he lamented that this is still very underdeveloped in SharePoint, making most companies turn to third party benchmark products.

Another topic Joel managed to go over is Adoption. As discussed in the webinar, Adoption is curtailed and can be viewed only through segmented metrics which show not only if users are utilizing SharePoint, but also how much they actually “like it”. Social parameters are always a good indicator of this, and later in the webinar its shown how CardioLog Analytics illustrates Adoption through some of these parameters.

The collaborative webinar was an informative combination of SharePoint 2013 assessment, a review of it’s out of the box analytics and a highlight of the important features analytical products must contain, all coupled with examples from CardioLog Dashboards.

This webinar gives a glimpse into the ease of maneuvering and setting up Dashboards.
