William McKnight

Hello and welcome to my blog!

I will periodically be sharing my thoughts and observations on information management here in the blog. I am passionate about the effective creation, management and distribution of information for the benefit of company goals, and I'm thrilled to be a part of my clients' growth plans and connect what the industry provides to those goals. I have played many roles, but the perspective I come from is benefit to the end client. I hope the entries can be of some modest benefit to that goal. Please share your thoughts and input to the topics.

Do you like to decentralize your data access? Have a hard time coming up with "standard" dimensions for everyone? Are your users pretty astute about their data requirements? If you answered yes to these questions, you may like FAST Radar from FAST. This product gives users the ability to create custom dimensions (what they call "hierarchies") and triggered "gauges". I can see business users customizing and enjoying the gauges, which consist of pop-up links, pop-up GIFs and custom emails occurring for specific data profiles - like displaying a yellow traffic light and an intranet URL to order product when inventory is low in a region.

FAST Radar is a ROLAP solution. In the user interface, FAST Radar has a rather slick way for a user to easily build predicates for a query.
