Demonstrating how xBRL-JSON greatly simplifies analytics

Posted on April 23, 2021 by Editor

Those of our readers who attended Data Amplified will know that Revathy Ramanan, XBRL International’s Guidance Manager, wowed the audience with a live demonstration, building multiple analytical reports on the fly. She has revisited her conference session with a new blog post on the Taggings section of our website, ‘xBRL-JSON makes report consumption easier!’

Head over to the post to see how she took a range of public company filings, converted them into xBRL-JSON, and then explored them further using three very common tools: Tableau, Google Data Studio and Excel 365 – enabling her to easily create tables and charts. There are links to copies of each of the examples, so you can follow along.

“I find it remarkable how xBRL-JSON reports can be used ‘as-is’ in analytical tools and believe it significantly improves the consumption friendliness of XBRL reports. The idea here is not to discard the sophisticated analytical infrastructure that many users have implemented but to open the possibilities of doing analysis with a lot more agility,” says Ramanan. “The best way to appreciate the capabilities of xBRL-JSON is to get your hands dirty and get started with experimentation!”
