What’s better than improving your productivity or increasing the ways you’re able to interact with your data? The answer, of course, is nothing. That’s why people have been using Power BI with Quick Base for years. But with a recent release, the way Power BI interacts with Quick Base has changed for the better. This blog will highlight the new Power BI connector while showing you how VeilSun’s expertise can make it matter for you.So, what’s all the hubbub about? Quick Base recently released a certified Power BI connector that allows you to pull data from Quick Base into Power BI. This is significant because it opens up hundreds of different report types that you can report on Quick Base data. Not only that, the connector allows you to mash it up with data from other systems. It enhances the Quick Base reporting capability because Quick Base has always been very table-centric (meaning you could only report on one data set at a time). But now, that’s in the past.
As much as things continue to evolve in the world of programming, one thing doesn’t change: the quest to make things easier. Quick Base has already perfected this art, which is why it’s become the programming platform of choice for so many companies. But we wanted to take a little time in our blog to tell you about another resource that’s just as easy to use and can be paired with Quick Base to turbocharge your productivity: Bubble.
Bubble is great for many reasons, including its intuitive, drag-and-drop interface and its sweet user portal. But instead of touting its features and benefits, we thought we’d show you them via a real-world case study.
The Rural Physicians Group works as a matching service for hospitals that have more patients than physicians. They match physicians with full time gigs to fill shifts at rural hospitals. They use Quick Base with a great deal of success in figuring out logistics, like which physicians they have and which physicians are credentialed where. They are also use Quick Base to forecast revenue, like what they pay the doctor versus hospital and how much they pay physicians to cover a set of shifts, etc.
What they wanted to do was start using that information to optimize the scheduling of physicians. Currently, they use an antiquated scheduling system that just isn’t efficient. As a service to providers (they think of doctors as clients too), they wanted to make the scheduling process more interactive. So, they turned to Quick Base and Bubble.
When it comes to developing an app, there are obviously a lot of moving pieces contained within many different phases. This blog post is going to take a look at the one phase where we see most apps fail: the adoption stage.
This is it! The final part of our talk, “Building a Better Death Star,” given at EMPOWER 2018. As a follow up to part 4, this entry takes a look at real-time budget accountability. Some estimates put the cost of building the Death Star at around $852 quadrillion. At that scale, we’re guessing budgets were also kind of a big deal. Down here on Earth, we operate with smaller numbers, but that doesn’t make them any less important. Let’s explore how Quick Base can help you make a galactic impact on your budget accountability.
Anyone who’s been a CTO for a while knows the amount of effort that goes into building, securing, and maintaining full-stack WEB applications. They also know Web app development demand usually outstrips DevOps supply.
Just today, I was thinking back to when I was the CTO of a brand-new start up in the geolocation space.
We’re rolling ahead with part 4 of our talk, “Building a Better Death Star,” given at EMPOWER 2018. As a follow up to part 3, this entry focuses on managing risk in the field. Considering they had to evade Force Chokes from their team lead, the guys building the Death Star were clearly well versed in how to manage risk. Let’s see how that plays out for the rest of us with Quick Base.
In the Low-Code world, it’s mostly about fast and cheap.
We’re excited to jump right in to part 3 of our talk, “Building a Better Death Star,” given at EMPOWER 201
8. We’re following up to part 2, Imperial Best Practices: Managing Projects and Resources with this entry about scheduling from a project management standpoint. But we’ll skip the fancy intros—when you’re trying to crush the rebellion, time is of the essence.
