Business Intelligence Data Mashups with Jay-Z and The Beatles

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (2)

What do The Beatles and Jay-Z have to do with business intelligence dashboards? Welcome to the world of the data mashup! As we have seen in the last few business intelligence dashboard examples, there is definitely a trend towards the use of data mashups on enterprise dashboards. Components such as Google Maps are valuable contributions on BI dashboards that add to the value of the user experience. I'd like to point out an MP3 on tdwi.com that gives some great background on data mashups. It's an interview titled: Audio Report: Mashups, Data and BI. Byron Igoe starts off by explaining th

Criminal tracking dashboard used by Tom Cruise in Minority Report

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Speaking of real-life, physical executive dashboards and scorecards, there's, of course, the famous "floating interface" used by Tom Cruise in Minority Report. He uses a glove contol to whiz through various dashboards to track down crimes that will occur in the future. Below is a scene from this must-see movie. The gorgeous painting below is by artist Dale Rutter. For a funny cartoon that points out that cool interfaces don't mean productive work sessions, please see this strip from movie-comics.com. If you haven't seen this movie, order it here. And if you are really into the idea of this

Enterprise Application Management Dashboard - design sketches for product revision

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Early in 2006, CA acquired Wily Technology, a company that specialized in the area of enterprise application management. I was given a series of dashboard screenshot sketches for a Wily enterprise dashboard product facelift by a Dashboard Spy before the transaction completed. I don't know if this was put into production or not. I'll present the dashboard designs as a sketch for brainstorming. See if these dashboard drilldowns are helpful in any way, either to someone working on an application monitoring system, or a general dashboard-driven application. I particularly like the way the help pa

Once again, the award winning Dr. Robert Allison has sent us the results of his SAS/GRAPH experiments (you didn't know you can get awards for dashboarding, did you? Check here.) He decided to implement another of the dashboards from the Stephen Few dashboard book,Information Dashboard Design: The Effective Visual Communication of Data. "Hello Dashboard Spy.

2009 Year of the Mashup Dashboard

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (2)

If poring over another year's worth of business intelligence dashboards has taught me anything, it's that the very form and structure of a digital dashboard is what gives it such value and utility. We've heard it said over and over from many a dashboard design guru that a dashboard should be a single page, easy-to-absorb, summary of your most key performance indicators. I agree that this "at-a-glance" nature of a business dashboard is its most core attribute. Just as imagery can be such a powerful device in poetry, the snapshot that a dashboard provides can be the strongest call-to-action for

Enterprise Dashboard Cosmetics

On this blog, we focus on the value that the "cosmetic" elements can give to business intelligence dashboards. I'll probably get into big trouble for this post, but a long-time reader of The Dashboard Spy sent me this graphic and I just have to show it to you. As the submitter explains: Hello Dashboard Spy, I have submitted a few sas/graph dashboards in the past. But this one is not like my previous dashboard screenshots, and it is just for "fun" (and please keep my name anonymous ;)  Hopefully it won't offend the women-drivers too much (use your own discretion about how much trouble posti

Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman using the Jury Selection Dashboard from Runaway Jury

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

I love real-life, physical dashboard use! Remember how Gene Hackman and Dustin Hoffman matched wits in the movie Runaway Jury? They were each applying different methods of choosing jurors, but both used jury selection dashboards! If you haven't seen the movie, check out how critical a role information delivery played. Here's Hackman's dashboard:   And this was Hoffman's jury selection dashboard:   So what or who is The Dashboard Spy?

Dashboard Spy reader and seasoned IT consultant Pete Brown, who I've come to think of as "Dashboard Pete", has provided us dashboarding enthusiasts with a powerful PowerPoint template to use when we want to structure a presentation in the dashboard style. Recent posts have explored the growing use of dashboard-style navigation in PowerPoint. See Using PowerPoint as a Presentation Dashboard over on the main Dashboard Spy site. Also, we spoke recently of how many dashboards themselves rely on PowerPoint as a distribution method. See Project Status Dashboards in PowerPoint. The iDash template (

SEO Dashboard Metrics

So I figured nobody would be interested in SEO Dashboard KPIs. And, lol and behold, I get a notice about an extensive write up about SEO dashboards and the metrics they use. I kid you not. I was speaking to Tricia Aanderud about her new book (Building Business Intelligence Using SAS: Content Development Examples - review coming up soon), and she invited me to join her in a presentation. She suggested that I speak about SEO metrics for dashboards because she knows that I'm a nut about SEO (I specialize in high level SEO consulting for business intelligence companies). I told her "No way, no one

Human Capital Dashboard Tracks Strategic HR Metrics Using Xcelsius

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (4)

A Human Capital Dashboard addresses what was deemed a weakness in HR measurements - that companies gather human resource metrics but don't use them strategically. A 2004 survey of senior executives, managers and HR professionals showed a wide gap between HR KPI collection and the use of that information as a management tool. See Human Capital Metrics: Most Users are Missing the Point. Enterprise Dashboards, of course, are excellent in providing actionable business intelligence and are tools used to bridge gaps such as these.

Construction Project Management Dashboard - tracking job site conditions, activities, team messages

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

The construction industry has always paid huge attention to project management. It's an area where dependencies between activities and availability of resources can be painfully apparent. Of course, we in the IT world have similar concerns, but somehow it seems more alarming when a fleet of concrete trucks roll up to the job site and you have them sit idle because the site is not ready. A Dashboard Spy attended a Technology for Construction conference. It was held alongside the World of Concrete and World of Masonry trade shows (you have to LOVE those names!). He came away with this screensh

Provost Dashboard

For those Dashboard Spy readers out there who may be unfamiliar with the finer points of titles within the world of academia, "Provost" is usually the senior academic administrator. Think of him or her as the "Chief Academic Officer" of the university or college. The provost would report to the "CEO" of the college, usually titled President or Chancellor. Anyway, getting back to executive dashboards, the point of this post is to bring out the fact that, just as in the corporate world, the academic management space is ripe for the growth of business intelligence dashboards.

Here are a couple of executive dashboard screenshots from an executive success coaching product called Best Year Yet.
