Social Media is a popular way for businesses to "keep a finger on the pulse" of their target demographic. As such, a quick mashup of a BI, Twitter, and Google maps is a fun experiment. Attached is a Dashboard, using Community Dashboard Framework (CDF) that sources it's data from Community Data Access (CDA). To get this sample running in your environment, you will first need:
- Pentaho BI Server installed and running
- CDF installed (download installer from http://www.webdetails.pt/)
- CDA installed (download installer from http://www.webdetails.pt/)
Simply unzip the attached file into the pentaho-solutions folder in your BI Server installation location then refresh the solution browser. TweetBI folder should appear. Open "My Dashboard" to see the example mashup.
