MisoData showcase – compare public data for free!

There’s a world of interesting open data out there—from weather trends to stock prices to world census data. All of which is potentially very interesting, but in reality, raw CSV data is often quite boring. Enter MisoData.

Today, we launched our new Open Data showcase dashboard, which you can play with here. Using our new MisoData feature, we are able to visualize that data, chart it in different ways, and even add forecasts or smooth average curves.

The best part is you can drag-and-compare anything to anything. Want to see how birthrates correlate to weather patterns? Interested if smartphone stock prices are correlated to the CPI index or affected by French politics? Just drag-and-compare!(*)

Of course, MisoData is only available to Premium users, but we wanted to create a dashboard where anyone can play with public, open data for free. So we made the Open Data showcase dashboard free for everyone to use and explore. 🙂

Have some interesting open data sources to contribute? Drop us a comment below or visit our Ecosystem to add it to the library. We’ll continue to update this dashboard with more sources of open data, so you’ll have even more interesting options to play with.

(*) Since this dashboard is for demo purposes, you won’t be able to save your creations—but you can play with many of its features, including drag-and-compare.

Introducing Netvibes MisoData: Now Drag-and-Compare All Your Excel Spreadsheets and Data Reports, All on One Dashboard

Most employees report spending too much time gathering manual reports from different systems and departments, without being able to find what they need when they need it. Today, we introduced a new technology called MisoData that makes it easy to instantly compare any internal data or KPI–alongside external social trends–just by dragging and dropping.

“MisoData begins where Excel ends. Now you can see all your reports on one dashboard, watch every chart update automatically, and drag-and-compare anything. You can literally see how your Sales correlate to your Social Media campaign, Supply Chain and Engineering Tickets,” said Freddy Mini, CEO Netvibes. “The magic of MisoData is that anyone can do it, even on an iPad. No IT, business analytics or database knowledge necessary. No more emailing Excel reports back and forth.”

  • Chart anything in just 3 clicks: Pick any Excel spreadsheet or CSV report from virtually any enterprise system or database. MisoData will chart all your reports beautifully on one dashboard–complete with forecasts, linear regression and average curves–without the need for IT involvement or custom data connectors.
  • Grow automatically: Watch last week’s estimates get replaced by this week’s actual numbers. MisoData syncs all your chart data automatically, so you’ll never need to run the same report each week. Instead of emailing Excel files back and forth, your team can simply check their dashboard from their iPad, iPhone, Android, Blackberry or desktop browser.
  • Drag-and-Compare everything: Drag any chart onto any chart for instant comparisons and correlations. Now you can instantly understand how different internal KPIs correlate with each other and even external social trends, competitive intelligence or regulatory affairs. No complex queries or business analytics–simply drag-and-compare.
