SAP Business One + Metabase

I’ve been looking for an Open Source BI solution for the last past weeks. As I was browsing a couple of topics at Quora website, I found a very interesting post about BI Solutions and AWS Redshift.

Metabase has a very interesting tag line:

Metabase is the easy, open source way for everyone in your company to ask questions and learn from data.

After reading this testimonial I had to give it a try.

I just followed along this simple setup guide.

A couple of minutes later I had my instance up and running:

Connecting to my SAP Business One demo database was also extremely easy:

Now, you would think that at least building the Dashboards would take a little bit longer. NO! Just a few minutes later and BOOM!

Now you can create all your KPIs, set the browser on a big screen TV and BOOM:

Metabase_KPI_Dashboard

 

You can also set a time frame for the dashboard to be refreshed:

Of course, the product is still a work in progress. You will notice that is not possible to add different formats to the numbers. And there is a limitation to the number of Dashboards types.

But the team at Metabase did an awesome job so far!
