Expanding on Monday’s post today I’m getting into the detail of what “A way to distribute the chart” means. The goal is to publicly work out a specification of what this MVP looks like.

Report distribution is the loosest part of the MVP. Again, this is going to be a full featured, pick a delivery method, from e-mail, to a video presentation, to a newspaper analogue. The earliest method of distribution is most likely going to be e-mailed alarms but here customer validation is weak because it’s difficult to get people to really understand the concept without having an existing variant of the product to work with.

Does the MVP version require a working distribution of a BI suite or can that be simplified down to something a little quicker to implement? This is an open question at present.
