The Reporting Control Center

aka Quilt Data Hub or Lightdash 2.0?

Challenge

Can I evangelize
a corporate data platform
by just emailing out reports
with sufficiently smart URLs?

Rationale

I don’t have the power
to pull others onto a new platform.
But I can push useful data to others
in a way that inspires them to participate more directly with the platform

Proposal

Replace friendly Salesforce Reports and powerful NetSuite Saved Searches with a unified interface for viewing, editing, sharing, and managing:

  • versioned reports
  • personalized alerts
  • variant analyses

that are delivered via self-contained emails that also onboard people into greater use of the platform

Definitions

Friendly

  • Browseable
  • Drag and Drop
  • Live previews

Powerful

  • Complex formulas
  • Scaleable notifications
  • Easy joins and relabeling

Motivation

The main value of Quilt to my business
is as a point of leverage
to shift the culture of communication
from “zombie data” in tables
to “smart reports” in a repository
