Swine Flu Dashboards

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (4)

The dashboard design pattern has not only been fully adopted by practitioners and users in the fields of business intelligence and corporate management, but is now considered the "go-to" design solution by a multitude of people across myriad industry verticals. Anyone in any industry with a need for communicating information seems to benefit from the dashboard design pattern. The reason why I so firmly believe this now is my observation of how quickly various organizations published dashboards depicting data related to the Swine Flu outbreak. In a very short time frame, some very sophisticate

Public Official Activity Enterprise Dashboard

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

This enterprise dashboard is meant for use by public officials to facilitate their workflow. As you'll recognize from the various webparts that you'll see, it is driven by the Microsoft SharePoint platform. As a matter of fact, it's one of those hard-to-track down business application templates provided by the Sharepoint team.  This dashboard illustrates the activities of a US senator. And, yes, before you ask, the resemblance to senator Hillary Clinton is coincidental, unless the Microsoft team is having a little fun with their dashboard design here! The official name of this executive dash

Switching Dashboards

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

The title of today's Dashboards By Example post, "Switching Dashboards" has a double meaning. It's true that many business intelligence users are switching to desktop dashboards because of the benefits of the "immediacy" of data when it's on your personal desktop. I've posted in the past about the use of the desktop dashboard by Allan Wille and his team of dashboarding gurus at Klipfolio, Inc as an "unavoidable dashboard" device (see item #3 in 5 Hot Dashboard Topics of 2009). The other, more literal, meaning of the phrase switching dashboards arose in a discussion I had with a Dashboard Spy

Best Places to Work Dashboard

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (3)

In light of some recent negative reviews of Xcelsius 2008 (see Xcelsius Dashboards Bashed), the Dashboard Spy recently sent out a call for Business Objects Xcelsius 2008 dashboards so as to see how the product is being used out in the field. Today we start our brief visit of some Xcelsius 2008 dashboards by looking at an example of a dashboard from Computerworld.com titled the Best Places to Work Dashboard.

Carbon Footprint Dashboard

When Dashboard Spy reader Jonathan Nell said that the dashboard screenshot he just sent over was really "cool", I didn't think he meant it literally. Well, he did.

The California Air Resources Board, California Energy Commission, Next 10, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, Berkeley Institute of the Environment, and the Renewable and Appropriate Energy Lab have partnered to provide the technology to enable Californian individuals and

Crystal Xcelsius graphics

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

I went to a Business Objects Crystal Xcelsius url at http://www.bobjects.com/email_imp/smb/xcelsiusedm/it/index.html intending just to capture a screenshot. Figuring that this was a flash-based dashboard, I started twiddling with the knobs and dials. I noticed, however, that the graphics are separate animated gifs, so I'll post those as well. 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 business dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books and so set about creating his own. Finally c

Church Dashboard Measures More Than Attendance

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (1)

No matter what business niche we measure with our information dashboards, the success of our effort depends on selecting the right metrics and indicators. When attempting to truly understand the health of our business, we are challenged to look beyond the usual and obvious KPIs and incorporate the "you're right, we have to take that into account" measurements that add up to a fuller comprehension of our progress against goals. The selection of metrics can have subtleties that surface only after several iterations of dashboard design. Today we look at this topic by examining a case study invol

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

Womens New Year Resolutions Infographic

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Dashboards / Infographic Topic: Survey of Women's 2010 New Year's Resolution. What new year's resolutions did women make in 2010? This infographic reveals the results of a survey taken to find out. Presented as a simple array of 3D pie charts and bar graphs, this pseudo "dashboard" presents some very interesting survey results. This is a good example of how the data itself can be downright fascinating in its own right. The source is obviously tilted towards diet and exercise, so keep that in mind. Some of the data points I found particularly interesting: 89% of women made resolutions wh

GIS Dashboards

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

A reader of the Dashboard Spy newsletter wrote asking about the current state-of-the-art practices on incorporating GIS (Geographic Information Systems) and Geospatial techniques into business dashboards. The reader was concerned about the complexity of doing so because she remembered how clunky (and expensive!) GIS systems were when she last looked into them 20 years ago. We've covered quite a few GIS-driven dashboards on this blog (see bottom of this post for some interesting articles.), but the best way to get a sense of what geographically-oriented dashboards can do is to jump right into

The best book out right now on implementing dashboards is definitely Enterprise Dashboards: Design and Best Practices for IT .
