Focus on Priorities with Desktop Dashboards

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (3)

"A list of 90 Key Performance Indicators is a contradiction in terms." insists Allan Wille, long-time Dashboard Spy contributor and President/CEO of Serence, the desktop dashboard company. He went on to explain that today's business users are hard pressed to monitor what really matters (business progress) in a world where the most precious commodity seems to be attention. How can you even monitor 90 things, much less consider them each "key"? Allan has just finished a nice write up that features sneak peeks at the desktops of different business users across an enterprise. As Allan explains ab

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

The Dashboard Spy Theme Song

Dashboard Spy readers know that I'm always trying to push the envelope when it comes to publishing dashboard examples and business intelligence commentary and news.

The trend has caught on and we're seeing a host of similar sites and resources appear. And that's great news. The more we see from the troops in the trenches and the less we see of sales hype, the more mature this space will become. I encourag

SharePoint Enterprise Dashboard for Professional Services Contract Monitoring

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (1)

This departmental dashboard is part of the Microsoft SharePoint application templates and is meant for a professional services firm to use in monitoring the contract stage of a professional engagement. Nothing too earth-shattering here. There are only a handful of webparts such as ones for announcements, discussions, forms and links. Of most interest is the listing of milestones for the contractual setup process: Proposal accepted, Contract drafted, Internal legal review complete, Client legal review complete, Client sign-off on contract, Write project charter, communication plan complete, Es

A CIO and his Dashboard (and they lived happily ever after)

Here is how things are supposed to work after you pour all that effort into your enterprise dashboard project. Screenshots from the product pdf at http://www.finisar.com/nt/netwisdom.php  So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy interested in the design of enterprise dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to

Building Award Winning Enterprise Dashboards - Nice documentation of building an SAP Analytics dashboard

Tags for this Dashboard Screenshot: Digital Dashboard Implementation, Executive Dashboards, Business Dashboards, BI Dashboards What is valuable for us Dashboard Spies when we look at today's award-winning enterprise dashboard example is not what airline industry KPIs are shown, the integration of a document viewer, or even the fact that an award was won, but that the implementation team created a nice document explaining their process. Although the project pdf is really a sales support document, it has great design and implementation value and we should all flip through the 28 pages. Sever

Howard Dean Media Tracking Dashboard - Tracking PR metrics and earned media KPIs

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Tracking media exposure and the resulting impact is a big topic in the world of marketing. Dashboards are often used to enable at-a-glance understanding of one's media coverage. However, with a topic this far-ranging, a screen or two simply will not suffice. One public relations metrics outfit (see www.measuresofsuccess.com), produces something they call an Earned Media Dashboard in a pdf format that can run over 10 pages! Here I show some dashboard screenshots from 2003 that tracked the PR metrics from the Howard Dean for America campaign. It's worth studying in detail if you are intereste

Real Time Operational Dashboard Case Study

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

The Dashboard Spy is pleased to be cited as a enterprise digital dashboard resource in the fine whitepaper by Sidney Shek titled Enterprise Digital Dashboards as Rich Internet Applications. This CSC paper was added to the CSC Leading Edge Forum Knowledge Library a while back, but came back to mind recently as I helped a Dashboard Spy reader design an operational dashboard. Let's take a look at a prototype dashboard featured in the whitepaper. It's a real-time operational dashboard designed to track the operation of a Hot Strip Mill. You may have seen videos on Mr. Rogers where slabs of steel

When we last looked at the enterprise dashboards in the demo area and gallery at Dundas, we complimented the  design sense behind the dashboards. The marketing director wrote back with praise and pride about his team of designers. Here we look at more of their gorgeous work - their marketing dashboard demo. It's an interactive demo, so you should visit the site to try out the dropdowns and such, but here are a couple of dashboard screenshots.

Bling My Dashboard

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (4)

Here's a proposal for a new dashboarding technique that lets your dashboard users control the amount of "eye candy" that they see on thier dashboards and scorecards. How about a "bling" button that you can use to "turn up" the graphic volume of your business dashboards? Imagine being able to toggle back and forth between a minimally styled chart and a more lavish approach to graphing? The idea comes from SAS dashboarding guru, Robert Allison, who has done some unique work in this area. Take a look at these two versions of his Oil Refinery Production dashboard. Note the "Bling Button" at the t

Sentencing Guideline Dashboard - tracking judicial proceedings, criminal sentences, time served

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

There's no telling where the next Dashboard Spy will report from. Thanks to our extensive network, we have dashboard screenshots from "inside" that reveal how criminals are sentenced. To protect the guilty, we marked out social security numbers from these dashboard screenshots. As you will see, this application is web-based, but from a few years ago. These screenshots date from 2001 and I see that the State of Pennsylvania penal folks were using netscape then. This is a long series of screenshots, but hopefully interesting. Kind of like watching Law and Order. The first screensh

PerformancePoint Server Dashboards - BI or BS?

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (6)

Dashboards at any price? We take as gospel the value of Business Intelligence. No one doubts the value of actionable intelligence or the guidance that a good decision support system brings. We let the fat cats up top dictate a direction and we hustle to implement a business intelligence system. We check the Gartner BI Magic Quadrant and peruse the vendor literature. We even check the trade magazines for reviews. Standard operating procedure, right? Well, imagine my surprise the other day when I came across a magazine article that actually called into question whether a certain Performance Man

The Problem with Dashboards

| business intelligence | Comments (0)

Your company dashboard is only as good as the data it pulls and successfully interprets. Many dashboards are misleading because of flawed data or simply not useful because of the lack of good metrics. Here is an excellent whitepaper on this subject: Why Use Dashboard Metrics? (direct link to pdf) An excerpt: “The major problem with dashboards, however, lies in the fact that many are based on flawed measurement techniques and metrics that are not predictive of success. A dashboard is only useful to a company if the data behind it are accurate measures of consumer behavior and the best pre

Conditional Formatting in Excel

Conditional Formatting in Excel

I was working in Microsoft Excel and got a bit stuck on an issue with a formula, so I immediately went in search of the answer from my favorite Excel teaching resource, chandoo.org. I did find the answer, but while I was there, a very helpful article caught my eye so I thought I'd pass it along. Conditional formatting in Excel is one of those foundational techniques that you must employ when creating business intelligence dashboards with excel. I'm talking about coloring certain cells a different color depending upon the value of that cell value. For example: Click here to read ex
