Risk control and key indicator management are increasingly becoming primary concerns for modern enterprises. When key indicators show abnormal fluctuations or significant outlier values are detected in key data, it is necessary to promptly communicate risk information to business leaders for effective risk alerting. With the increasing number of reports and indicators, frequent access to key data and dashboards continues to escalate users’ time costs. It is challenging for the IT department alone to handle scheduling tasks to meet the frequently changing business demands. In response to this scenario, the data alert function has emerged and has now been officially released.

Data Alert functions

Functional Advantages

Through its features of robust business attributes, strong indicator properties, and enhanced usability, the data alert effortlessly achieve indicator monitoring, data notification to relevant personnel, and deeper closed-loop scenarios!

1. Strong Business Attributes and Flexible Application

Users can configure alerts within the report viewing interface, setting flexible alert conditions for the key indicators they’re concerned about. When these indicators meet the configured alert conditions, the system will automatically send notifications.

This feature is simple and user-friendly, suitable for various types of users within an enterprise, meeting diverse alerting requirements.

2. Rich Array of Alert Notification Channels

After an alert is triggered, the system will automatically notify both the designated alert receivers and subscribed users.

Alert notifications are not only sent through common channels like email, text messages, Line, Teams, etc. but also support integration with third-party application APIs through a visual configuration interface. This allows flexible integration with third-party platforms or user-developed systems, catering to the business practices of enterprises.

3. Flexible Alert Notification Methods

In addition to supporting unified delivery to designated users, departments, or roles, the data alert also achieves dynamic linkage between report information and system user data, enabling precise delivery. This truly fulfills the demand for “the dynamic delivery of one report or task to multiple users based on individual responsibilities”.

4. Generating To-do tasks to Complete the Alert Cycle

Apart from alert notifications, it also supports assigning responsible parties for alerts as to-do tasks. Once triggered, they are transferred to the to-do center, enabling a closed-loop system that adds incremental value to alerts by tracking and recording the reasons for abnormal occurrences. Alerts go beyond mere notifications. They also facilitate the recording and routing of abnormal information to truly achieve a closed-loop system.

Application Scenarios

1. Enterprise-level Key Performance Indicator Monitoring

Leaders: Proactive notification of business risks

The data alert function can be used to monitor various business data of the enterprise, promptly informing about risk-related information within the enterprise’s operational process. This enables alert delivery to both leading personnel and responsible departments. Alert notifications support displaying component-level abnormal data images, saving time for alert recipients by eliminating the need to review entire dashboards, thus enhancing overall enterprise efficiency.

2. Departmental Business Indicator Monitoring

Business personnel: Maximizing human resources efficiency while accurately grasping business issues!

Managerial Goal: Monitoring employee performance and providing timely feedback for adjustments!

Through the data alert function, multiple reports that require frequent checks are transformed into proactive alert indicators. This reduces the cost of users repeatedly viewing reports and manually checking data. It also achieves concentrated information delivery tailored to individuals and departmental users, thereby enhancing information efficiency.

The costs of learning and understanding the data alert function are extremely low. Besides, it is configured at the front end of reports, thus maximizing business application capabilities and business practices.

Through the data alert feature, departmental managers or operational roles can dynamically monitor goal achievement and the performance of team members in real-time, and send alert notifications in batches to responsible individuals. When they encounter risks, the system can notify them and gather feedback, effectively reducing the risk of enterprise goal achievement failure.

3. System Maintenance Indicator Monitoring

IT: Being informed first about any system or data anomalies

The function of data alert enables IT personnel to be aware of abnormal information about projects and data before the business personnel and improves the efficiency of the enterprise’s data analysis, report application, and informatization construction.

Additionally, the IT department deals with intricate transactions. As the primary creator of all scheduling tasks, this department needs to continually communicate with the business to adjust and modify tasks based on their requirements. Maintaining efficiency in this regard is challenging. The function of data alert provides managers with unified task management within the alert management center. It also allows accessing comprehensive alert information stored within the system to achieve centralized management of alert tasks across the enterprise.

The article primarily focuses on the data alert function, sharing its core highlights, application scenarios, and its value for various roles within enterprises. The data alert effectively supports the establishment of a more complete information chain for enterprises.

Currently, the data alert function has been officially released and can be applied in both FineBI 6.0 and FineReport 11.0. Let’s explore it now!
