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

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

Microsoft Bing Scorecard

Dashboard Topic: A Sneak Peek at Microsoft Bing Search Engine's Scorecard Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer unveiled Bing.com to the public yesterday at a conference. It's the replacement to the Live search engine that will go live by June 3, 2009.   Upon hearing of the announcement I put out a call to my Dashboard Spy network to see if there's anything noteworthy in the new search engine's user interface that may be of interest to us business dashboard designers. Overall, the reception of the overall UI among people with advance access was lukewarm. One source alerted us to the use of "scoreca

BP Daily Dashboard for Gulf of Mexico Incident

Dashboard Spy: Raw File Edition Long time Dashboard Spy fans know that I can turn up some pretty amazing finds now and then. How would you like to see some internal dashboards that British Petroleum used to track their oil spill clean up activities? Don't have much to go on here except for some very interesting URLs from the United States House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary web server. At this point, my guess is that the committee was examining BP's handling of the crisis and asked to see internal documentation. This came in the form of PDF dashboards! Take a look at this f

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.

Retail Store Scorecard

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (1)

Business Dashboard Topic: Tracking KPIs and Metrics for Retail Stores Walking along Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, I noticed through one of the store windows this dashboard. Titled Retail Scorecard, it's a pen and paper (ok, erasable marker and plastic poster) dashboard used by the retailer to track store performance metrics. I won't name the retailer as I'm sure their management would not appreciate the fact that it's viewable by anyone looking into their window (talk about management transparency!), but it's a brand name that everyone would recognize.

Estimates, Jobs & Invoices Dashboard - Optimizing small business workflows

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

I've been spying on the progress of a small business dashboard being done by a designer in Wales. Take a look at his first post about the need for a better way to track the workflow and metrics surrounding project estimation, billing and job status for his design practice. After getting a sense of his requirements, take a look at this update where he posts his progress. I grabbed for you the dashboard screenshots shown here. There are 4 tabs: dashboard, jobs, estimates and invoices. I'll only show a screenshot or two for each tab, but you can go to the links above to see (and read about

Dashboard Topic: Demo of an Excel Dashboard for Hospital Bed Management. Strategic management of hospital beds has become a high-pressure requirement in today's world of health care facilities needing to do more with less resources. Like it or not, hospitals make money by determining the "right" kind of patients, procedures and getting the occupany and turn-over rates right. Yes, it seems cold-hearted, but strategic management of resources such as beds is what drives the profitability of health-care facilities. Now, in defense of hospitals, I recently had the experience of bringing someone w
