Is Business Analytics Replacing Business Intelligence?

| business analytics dashboards | Comments (0)

What's in a name? Or should I ask, "What's in an acronym?". We all know and love "BI" or "Business Intelligence". But have you noticed the movement from the major vendors in the industry shift to the use of "Business Analytics" rather than "Business Intelligence"? I believe that business analytics is meant to imply more than business intelligence, but beyond that functional distinction, I think that the marketers are having more fun with "analytics" as a concept. The recent Gartner BI Summit 2012 held in London had a category name change. Gartner now calls the category "Business Analytic

Multiple Language Infographics

Information visualization analysts in countries with multiple language preferences by the user community have to work harder than the rest of us. Here's a look at an infographic that comes in an English language version as well as the original Hebrew version. This one in particular makes for a good example. You don't just have the challenge of translation, but all the left to right, right to left parsing issue. It's almost twice the work! You can read more about this infographic at this link: http://www.coolinfographics.com/blog/2012/6/5/market-and-competitive-intelligence-trends.html

Workforce metrics and KPIs of interest to a company's human resources department were the focus of the previous post. In particular, we listed many human capital metrics by category. For today, I promised a link to an interactive HR dashboard demo, so here is a Workforce Analytics dashboard done in Crystal Xcelsius. This interactive demo of a Workforce Analytics Dashboard is courtesy of Inverra.

3 Steps for Performance Improvement

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (1)

Performance improvement is both amazingly simple and frustratingly difficult. I say "amazingly simple" because of the effect where simply focusing attention on an area will lead to improvements. And of course, in terms of "frustratingly difficult", we are all aware of the wall we run into where no matter what further actions we take, we no longer get returns on our efforts. In researching some educational performance improvement dashboard projects, I came across a nice slide presentation that summarizes well three key steps for achieving performance improvement. Let's take a look at this cas

Performance Dashboard Measures College Student Satisfaction

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Performance Dashboards are gaining popularity in colleges and universities as management tools to track key performance indicators such as student satisfaction, enrollment and performance data. Today on The Dashboard Spy, we look at a performance dashboard in use at a college to monitor metrics in key performance areas. St. Charles Community College in this post http://www.stchas.edu/geninfo/admin/ire/IREPItemplate.shtml explains the dashboard analogy: "The term "dashboard" is commonly used to refer to the surface located below the windshield of a motor vehicle or aircraft, which contains in

Forrester Wave Enterprise Business Intelligence Platforms

Dashboard Spy readers know how I pore over the business intelligence platform reports from the big consulting companies. I can't resist reading every "bake-off" report that compares the big business intelligence vendors. A reader asked me about the latest Forrester report on the BI landscape, so I thought I'd share the report. First off, here's the link: The Forrester Wave: Enterprise Business Intelligence Platforms, Q4 2010 - IBM Cognos, SAP BusinessObjects and Oracle Lead, With Information Builders, SAS, Microsoft, MicroStrategy Close Behind. Here's a couple of screenshots of the report.

Information Technology Management Scorecard - measuring performance in six areas

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Back in 2000, the Canadian Pacific Railway pushed a big scorecard initiative. A Dashboard Spy in the Information Systems department (a nice Canadian who calls his company the "choo-choo, eh?") sent me a screenshot of the IS department's digital scorecard. Ratings are gathered in the six areas of IT Leadership, Project Management, Service Delivery, People Management, Client Satisfaction and Technology Management. Red/Yellow/Green dials indicate the scores. Of course, Red was not an option. Homework: If you are using dashboards to measure project performance, a must-read book is The Project M

The drug pipeline of a pharmaceutical company is truly where the future of the company lies.

Here is a screenshot of an Research and Development Dashboard. It shows the testing data of a compound for its efficacy against cancer. So what or who is The Dashboard Spy?

Overwatch Dashboard for Situation Awareness

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Dashboard Spy readers will have to forgive the obvious cliche when it comes to selecting spy agency dashboards to highlight on this forum. Several posts ago, we featured a very interesting situation awareness and security threat management system created by some former Isreali Air Force members that drew some interest in this dashboarding community. So, we thought we'd check in on some Dashboard Spies (literally) at the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency to see what they've been doing in terms of dashboards. The DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) is a DOD (Department of Defense - and you thought

Microsoft Enterprise Dashboard Screenshots

Dashboard Topic: Microsoft Dashboard Continuing on our whirlwind tour of the enterprise dashboard vendors covered in the Meta Group study of enteprise reporting and dashboard vendors, we get to Microsoft. One note concerning the Microsoft business intelligence offerings. As you know, Microsoft has agressively moved into this space via the repositioning of their current products, introduction of new BI platforms and products, and the acquisiton of other products in this space. As a result, it can be somewhat confusing figuring out exactly what product to look at when considering Microsoft for

User Configurable Service Desk Operational Metrics Dashboard - letting users create their own dashboard queries

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Enterprise Dashboard fans, I'm just updating this old post because it came up in a recent discussion of design patterns used to let dashboard users configure their views and preferences. This dashboard example is particulary nice in how it affords the user a lot of customization in choosing their data. The drawback is that for less sophisticated users, it may get them into trouble. Oh, well, I suppose there's always the dashboard help desk! This just in from a Dashboard Spy over at enterprisesolutionsinc.com who has developed a user-configurable dashboard system used to track real-time perfor

Don't tell me you didn't apply all that analytical skill and business intelligence savvy you have to your pool picks?

Financial Crisis Dashboard

Business Dashboard coverage from The Dashboard Spy: Crisis Dashboard - Coverage of Financial Market KPIs by thedeal.com. A couple of posts ago, we examined a dashboard meant as a tool for financial intermediaries (see Economic Recovery Dashboard for Financial Advisors). The point I was trying to make in that post was that some dashboards are not meant for the ultimate end user, but as a tool for the middleman looking to add value through expert knowledge and interpretation. Continuing the "financial markets" domain as an example, we now look at a similar dashboard that provides financial mar

Quiz Results Dashboard

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Business intelligence dashboards are usually serious affairs, with plenty of ominous red lights, tons of squiggly lines and stuffy disclaimers in tiny text. So, it's always nice when a Dashboard Spy reader sends in a dashboard with a bit of whimsy. Aaron Lyon (monkeymatic.com) is a skilled designer that was tasked to provide a leaderboard that tracked the results of a quiz. He came up with a design for a real-time scoreboard that is both entertaining and intuitive. A software company held a sales kickoff conference where 300 sales reps submitted SMS messages via mobile phones to answer quiz

The Scobleizer Dashboard - Scoble is using an MS Sharepoint Dashboard for The Scoble Meter

Thanks to a Dashboard Spy inside the Scoble encampment, we have this peek at the executive dashboard that Robert Scoble, famed blogger at microsoft, uses. This screenshot was grabbed from Scoble's screen and smuggled out to us last night. It's worth a look to see the kinds of metrics that he is tracking. Lots of gauges, scales, graphs and such. Perhaps too much? It also seems like he can use the dashboard to actually post to his blog and then monitor the buzz it creates. I'm told by a dashboard coding expert that the technology behind this enterprise dashboard is Microsof
