Open Source Analytics and Reporting Frameworks

I gave a talk at the FOSSLC summercamp ’09 event, on open source analytics and reporting frameworks.

The talk focussed on techniques to make data more accessible to stakeholders. I covered techniques for accessing, analysing, and visualizing data using web based reporting frameworks as well as employing programmatic means to generate natural language English reports.

The topics covered included:

* The importance of reporting technology
* The sources of data
* Data extraction and modelling
* Data cleaning techniques
* Data transformation
* Analytics — choosing the metrics
* Reporting using web frameworks
* Reporting using Natural Language Generation
* Things that can go wrong
* Best practices
