Midesk is a continuously-improving market intelligence platform with frequent improvements. We strongly believe in the 1% rule: frequent small code improvements are gentle to the clients and compound over time! We have deployed almost 1000 code commits since January 2019.
Midesk will fetch a defined API on a periodic basis, structure its content it and save it into its data repositories.
This is very helpful for passively generating market figures from SimilarWeb, Moody's Analytics, OpenCorporates, OECD, etc...
The implemented API not only extract given KPIs but also do "data acrobatics", including functions like counting (sum, min, max, mode, average) and filtering (firstWhere, unique, last, first). More function will be implemented based on our clients' user cases.
Midesk Report Builder is a drag & drop editor that connects all parts of Midesk into management-ready dashboards that are automatically updated, and exportable in the PowerPoint format.
The dashboards are based on the latest state of the "data repositories" which consolidate and manage data from various places, including via a Midesk Crawler, INBOX email forwarding, or manual entry.
The report builder is powered by a powerful tree-calculation method that can consolidate daily, weekly, quarterly figures into the right results for the client. It can also calculate and provide market sizes from unstructured figures (e.g. the total addressable Job-board market in Germany).
Midesk report builder features a multi-column resizable layout and movable blocks.
Midesk report builder offers a very flexible graphing library that aligns the web editor to its counterpart graphs in PowerPoint (real native PowerPoint graphs representation)
Midesk report builder offers "rolling periods" (e.g. last 2 weeks) so the client doesn't need to touch their graphs.

As our new website has just been launched and we have just started publishing our changelog, it's a bit of an overhead to dig deep the details from the past. We will add the missing months at a later point in time.
