CMX 10.2 Analytics – The Correlation Widget

gmcgarryWritten by Ian Mc Garry, CMX Software Engineer

The release of CMX 10.2 is coming soon and with introduces the improved Correlation Widget. Allowing you to view the relationship between areas, Correlation is a powerful tool. To help introduce you to the widget we’ve put together some simple but beneficial use cases outlining its utility and power.

Correlation Use Case – Identifying the Relationship Between Areas

Certain areas within a location, such as shops, should have a natural interaction or correlation with each other. This can be due to their related nature, ease of accessibility or even close proximity with one another. For example in a mall we may have a flower shop and a card shop. A strong correlation between these shops is expected due to the well-known fact that flowers and gift cards go hand-in-hand. Using the Correlation Widget we can quantify this relationship and prove or even disprove our theory.

We set up a simple correlation widget that looks at the data for shops last week. Setting our Card Shop as the focus allows us to then see the Correlation between it and the other shops in the building.
