Platform Objectives and Philosophical Approach

Why does Dealcharts.org exist?

Dealcharts.org was created to bridge the gap between data consumers and producers, particularly in sectors like Capital Markets, Real Estate, Alternative Data, and Venture Capital. Our goal is to democratize data access, encouraging innovation based on data utilization rather than data availability. The platform also serves as an experimental hub for new ideas and techniques in data visualization, some of which may pave the way for bespoke data solutions for specific industry needs.

What is a metadata-first strategy, and how does it power Dealcharts.org?

A metadata-first strategy prioritizes the organization and analysis of metadata, or data about data, to enhance information accessibility and usability. At Dealcharts.org, we leverage this approach to systematically catalog and index data, enabling more efficient searches, better data relationships, and clearer insights, all of which power the accurate and dynamic charts you find on our platform.

How does CMD+RVL's approach to metadata transform the way businesses can use data?

CMD+RVL utilizes metadata to create a cohesive data ecosystem that clarifies and connects various data elements across an enterprise. This transformation allows businesses to access and analyze their data more effectively, driving trustworthy data-driven decision-making and uncovering previously hidden commercial opportunities.

What is a data product, and why is every chart on Dealcharts.org considered one?

A data product is any output created from data that can independently provide value through actionable insights. Each chart on Dealcharts.org is designed as a data product, meaning it not only visually represents information but also serves as a practical tool for decision-making, trend analysis, and strategic planning. This approach ensures that every piece of data we present is both informative and directly applicable to your business needs.

How does leveraging a data product mindset influence the development of new features at Dealcharts.org?

Adopting a data product mindset encourages us to continuously innovate and refine our offerings, ensuring that each new feature or chart provides tangible benefits to our users. This perspective drives our development process, focusing on scalability, user engagement, and the practical application of data to solve real-world problems.

Community and Collaboration

How does CMD+RVL ensure the quality and reliability of its data products?

At CMD+RVL, we maintain rigorous standards for data quality and reliability by implementing robust governance practices and continuous improvement processes.
