| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (2)

On a recent business intelligence dashboard project, I had the luxury of designing for a dual monitor / large resolution screen size environment. The client, one of the world's biggest financial companies, needed a performance dashboard for their brokers. Each broker had a dual monitor setup with 1600 resolution on each screen. Talk about a nice amount of screen real estate for an enterprise dashboard! Speaking of large dashboards, I invite you over to the post on this dashboard on the main Dashboard Spy site.

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.

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.

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Excel 12 (part of the upcoming Office 2007) will feature some very nice business intelligence tools including dashboarding functions. Check out this post describing the new "Data Bar" format http://blogs.msdn.com/excel/archive/2006/02/24/538875.aspx. The idea of a data bar is to have a background that is partially filled and is relative to the other values. As explained: "The Excel 2007 UI allows you to choose whatever colour you want for your data bars, but, by default, all the data bars you apply to a range have to be the same colour.  Someone on our team recently showed me how to use a tin

Currency Trading Dashboard - Screenshot of a trade management dashboard

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Thanks to a rather sneaky Dashboard Spy, we have this enterprise dashboard screenshot from a large financial institution's trade management system. This dashboard shows positions, a maturity profile, deal statistics, deal action status, recent deals and a "pick a task" portlet.

Homework: This is a complicated field of dashboarding to attempt if you don't have trading systems experience. If you like the sink or swim

Go Back to School for Excel

Dashboard Topic: Excel School The dirty little secret in business intelligence dashboards is that sometimes (and actually more often than you think!), Microsoft Excel is a perfectly fine choice of platform for a business dashboard. And the even dirtier secret is that we business intelligence gurus are less adept at Excel than we should be. Is it time to go back to school for Excel? It certainly is if the Pointy Haired Dilbert of Chandoo.org is the professor! Yes, finally, there is a comprehensive "school for excel" - taught by a real Microsoft Excel expert!

Enterprise Dashboards Back in the Day - An oldie from Intel’s IT Team circa 2001

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (2)

Here's a shot of an early dashboard from the Intel Information Technology Indicators Team. The pdf that it came from indicates that this shot is similiar to the original from March of 2001. Intel keeps the pdf alive at http://www.intel.com/it/business-management/it-dashboard.pdf  The document is a must-read - it gives a grounding of balanced scorecard principles and is well written. As you can see, the graphics are primitive and lack the polish of today's dashboard designs, but the document is well worth the study.   Homework: An IT dashboard is a handy view into
