Two years ago an idea popped into my mind to solve a daily data analysis problem that I faced. It seemed like in every meeting I attended, a question was asked about historical data trends that no one could answer on the spot and attendees would end with an action item to answer the questions mentioned. This action item required individual team members to pull the historical data points, re-analyze the trend and hopefully have notes on what changes were made during that time to be able to come to a conclusion. This is a time consuming task that wastes valuable resources and money, and sometimes doesn't have a conclusion.So I became obsessed with the idea of creating a framework to solve this problem and the result of my work is Synotate, a collaborative data analysis platform that gives data-driven teams the ability to store and share data insights in a structured and organized manner.
- Create data annotations for noticeable trends in reports or changes to your organization.
- Manage data analysis projects and requests.
- Easily retrieve past learnings with a structured filtering system.
This project took me about two years to finally launch and I'm really proud to share it with you. Please check out the site and reach out to me if you have feedback or questions!I plan on blogging about my progress weekly so everyone can follow along and hopefully learn something new about launching a SaaS business.
