Nucleus clients have surfaced key analytics they want to share with the broader community, whether it be on their public-facing web site, or for their members. The Nucleus product team identified this use case early on, and has responded to client’s needs by developing new features and functionality to support them.
We are firm believers that democratizing data leads to better organizational effectiveness. But occasionally, a need arises where you must provide specific views into your data. With our new role-based access feature, you can now personalize your users’ Nucleus experience.
Our Nucleus product team has been working hard to optimize the insights you can gain about your donations and donors to help you to better analyze, anticipate, and improve your organization’s fundraising efforts.
Data analytics platforms often boast the same generic capabilities: all of them are easy to use, the visualizations are both beautiful and actionable, and you'll glean insights that you couldn't have found elsewhere. Unless you have deep knowledge or selection experience, it’s easy to take bold claims at face value. So how can you – without being a data expert – accurately compare platform against platform?

We’ve heard a lot about the high rate of unsuccessful data initiatives. According to Gartner, an astounding 70 to 80 percent of business intelligence (BI) projects have failed.
A failure rate that high prompts us to ask the big questions: why? If everyone is trying to leverage data to make better decisions, then why is it so hard to glean actionable insights? How can these initiatives be more successful?
It’s natural for organizations to think about BI success exclusively in terms of outcomes, because after all, improving the bottom line enables advancement of the organization’s mission.
For example, we often see organizations determining whether a BI project was successful by monitoring for increases in member engagement, conference attendance, or renewal rates. While these metrics are crucial, they don’t account for how an organization plans to achieve them. Simply implementing a BI initiative or setting goals doesn’t address the roadmap for achieving real results.
Creating a data governance strategy used to be a standard process, but evolving technology and agile methodology have enabled new and different approaches. Before you begin defining your data governance needs, consider your organization’s culture, timeline, and budget and whether an agile or traditional methodology would suit your needs best. The good news is, regardless of which path you choose, it’s easier than ever to create a strategy that’s both affordable and easy to adopt.
Gravitate Solutions, the creators of the Nucleus data analytics platform, today announced a 100% client renewal rate since the product launched in 2016.
We are all juggling strategic initiatives – those set by the board or executive team – along with tactical improvements needed to move the needle for the organization. Maybe a new website has been authorized to update a clunky CMS, or implement a new CRM. These are worthy and important initiatives. But without implementing the right data analytics tools, all this energy may be spent in keeping the needle exactly where it is for your organization.
