2012: the year of the mashup, based on search, multi-facet representation and semantics (Part 1)

At the beginning of this year, I planned to write a classical post regarding my predictions for 2012. For the first time. But time was missing and I gave up.

Nevertheless, the idea was to talk about Mobile UI, more and more successfully aggregating information from different sources, and not only linking data to dedicated app:

  • Flipboard, google currents: aggregating several information sources, rss feeds, Facebook and twitter accounts and many more.
  • Mango interface from windows mobile: not focused on application, but data

With those application, the purpose is not about the application used, but about the data itself. Simply.

But what about PLM apps? Did vendor conscious about the need to aggregate data from and inside their application? To build dedicated visual dashboards, that the user can define and share?

Some time ago, I posted about specialized search available to quickly access data. The idea was t provide simplify access to data, designing specific queries, and defining associated specific layouts. But this approach is still designed by implementers, and not the users themselves.

So my prediction was that 2012 were the start do development of visual dashboards. But what are the base building blocks to be able to offer such capability?

Then, earlier this year, DASSAULT SYSTEMES acquired Netvibes. It was surprising, as this application is dedicated to monitoring data on the web, like monitoring e-reputation. Far from the PLM world. But Netvibes should provide the technology to build dashboard, may be in combination with Exalead.

Then came an internal request at FAURECIA to provide a new layout in Enovia, leveraging visual data management, in order to reproduce physical dashboards in projects rooms, where projects teams have regular meetings and can visually display the project progress. All data is existing in the PLM application, simply not organized like it is needed at a given time of the project life cycle. Again implementers are needed.

Then came Active workspace by Siemems. A kind of SBA, allowing the user to navigate, through search, inside the 3D data.

So after simply 3 months after the start of 2012, my prediction seems going to reality!

But how such dashboards can be built, which technology can unable highly configurable visual dashboards?

Let’s see that in the second part!

And you, do you need personal dashboard about your product data?
