Analytics (all products)

Presentation Topic Description

An app built in Python and Javascript that pulls data from the Alma Analytics API (nightly) and serves a web page showing the progress toward our spending goal for a given fund (as a burndown chart). This approach allows me to calculate expected date of expenditure, which I wasn't able to do in Alma Analytics (given the SQL limitations there), and I think the graphics look better than what OBIEE provides. In the coming months, I plan to expand on the functionality, though I'm still prioritizing the use cases.
