Our Analytics Cloud (Wave)

Expertise & Experiences

Dataset

A dataset is a specific view into a data source based on how you've customized it. It could be based on a data pipeline or from an ETL vendor.

Lens

A lens is a particular view into a dataset's data where you do visualization and exploratory analysis. It includes fundamental operations like Measure, Group/Dimensions, Filters & Views.

Dashboard

A dashboard is an interactive collection of widgets showing different snapshots from one or more lenses to tell a story from different angles.

Data Flow

A dataflow definition file is a JSON file that contains transformations that represent the dataflow logic.

Simple Transformations

Nanostuffs has helped several customers implement logical transformations into Wave. For e.g. "edgemart" to integrate data from an external source. "sfdcDigest" to generate a dataset based on data extract from Salesforce object. "sfdcRegister" to make a data set available for use within Analytics cloud.

External Data API

The REST API allows you to access the Analytics Cloud and upload external data files into datasets. Excel Connector, Integration Platforms like InformaticaRev, Dell Boomi, etc.

Visualization

Graphic Comparisons, Change over time, Significant data points within a calendar timeframe, Parallel data points over time, Data distribution on a grid, Data concentrations on a grid, Data comparisons on two axis, etc.

Extended Metadata (XMD)

The formatting of measures, Display labels, Grouping of dimensions of measures, Colors of specific fields, Dimensions for creating custom links, etc. E.g. {"labels" : {"dimensions" : { "StageName" : "Stage"}, "measures" : {"Probability" : "Probability (%)", "Amount" : "Amount"}, "keys": {"ForecastCategoryName": {"Closed": "Closed Won", "Omitted": "Closed Lost" }}}, "colors": {"ForecastCategoryName": { "Closed": "#4f4", "Omitted": "#f44"}} ....

SAQL

Influenced by Pig Latin language, SAQL is used to perform advanced operations in dashboards like Load, Filter, Group, Foreach, Union, Order, Limit, Offset, etc. For e.g. to compute the Customer Satisfaction variance from KPI we'll write a SAQL of such kind - q = foreachq generate 'Created_Date_Year' + \"~~~\" + 'Created_Date_Month' as 'Year-Month', avg('Customer_Satisfaction_m') -8.5 as 'variance_CSAT_KPI', count() as 'count';
