One of the issues that I've always had with analytics is that vendors think packing more and more measurements is the way to enhance their platforms. While it's great to have thousands of variables to report on, understanding which variables actually have an impact on your business is much more difficult. And even understanding which variables do begs the question of how to move the needle. Analytics platforms always seem to generate more questions than answers.
Tidemark Storylines are actionable visualizations that dynamically tell the story of a company's performance. These “actiongraphics” combine your process, your data, and data from outside your walls to give you a complete picture of the business. They provide you with the ability to understand and impact your overall health, workforce, what if simulation, profitability, and forecast trends.
