Marine Terminal Dashboard - Yard Operations Monitoring

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Thanks to a Dashboard Spy with an interest in marine terminal mechanization, we have this marine terminal operations dashboard to examine. The point of this enterprise dashboard is to allow the marine terminal management to monitor yard operations in real time and to alert them of conditions outside of normal boundaries. Marine terminal operations fall into three main areas of focus in terms of production management: crane operations from/to vessel and train/truck, yard production of container stacks, container parking and rail cars, and gate operations involving entry and departure into the

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

Stock Market Dashboard

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (7)

Every time I post a business dashboard that makes use of dial gauges, I get lots of feedback from data visualization experts about why the gauges don't add much value to the dashboard. OK, my infoviz specialists, try my latest thinking on for size: So, if a particular dial gauge only adds a little value to a business intelligence dashboard, just add a ton of them to get lots of value! 😉 Ha ha!! What do you think of my approach to dial gauges? Here's an example. Check out this stock market dashboard. It features the use of a dial or two. Click on the dashboard screenshot to enlarge the ima

Mashup Dashboards with Websphere Portal and Google Gadgets

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (2)

Since we've been talking about the design of Business Intelligence Dashboards and the influence of Web 2.0, I want to make sure to stress that Web 2.o is NOT about the shiny look of the big buttons. Web 2.0 is not about what the page looks like. Yes, we studied some examples of a common design aesthetic that has emerged, but Web 2.0 is beyond that. Likewise, it is also not about the underlying technology. When we think of AJAX, DOM, CSS, et al, we really are thinking about RIA (Rich Internet Application) tools and not Web 2.0. So what is Web 2.0 and why should we enterprise dashboard designe

What Are Enterprise Dashboards and Why Should I Care?

| Uncategorized | Comments (0)

What are enterprise dashboards? Well, dashboards are simple-to-understand, visually-oriented depictions of the current state of the metrics and key performance indicators of most importance to your business. Of course, they borrow from the "cockpit" or "dashboard" metaphors that are so easy to "get". Here's a screenshot of a typical dashboard: Nice layout, right? Do you want a copy of the HTML for it? It will save your developers weeks of tweaking code. To get a free copy of the html template, just sign up for my newsletter. Use the form to the side of this post. There's no cost and

Lightbox Images on Excel Dashboards

Today's Dashboard Design Tip from the Dashboard Spy: Showing Images in Excel with a Web 2.0 Flair! Excel dashboards can use the Lightbox image technique so popular with blogs and websites these days.

Thanks to the always innovative dashboard experts at Juice Analytics who wrote the post, Lightboxing Images in Excel, we get this Excel Dashboard xls file (right click and save xls file) and accompanying ima

Job Requisition Dashboard

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Here's a quick (and fuzzy!) glimpse at a dashboard used by recruiters and HR personnel to match jobs against candidates. It's a screenshot of page from an Unicru system. That's a hosted resume management platform company that was bought out last year for $150M. Anyway, here's the peek at the job requisition dashboard.  The open job has 3 tabs: Overview, Hirer's Description and Workstyle. Each tab opens a page with various portlets. For example the Overview tab has basic job description elements such as job role, employment type, location, compensation, start date and duration. The other po

The Horizon Graph

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (12)

Should you have a Horizon Graph for your dashboard? When a new information visualization technique is invented, it's interesting news. The ones that are worthwhile find themselves in our mental toolboxes and eventually on our dashboards. Sparklines, bullet graphs, treemaps come to mind as recent inventions of note. When a new infomation visualization technique comes out and is lauded by Stephen Few, however, then it becomes not just interesting, but important! Stephen Few, author of Information Dashboard Design: The Effective Visual Communication of Data, is the developer of the bullet graph

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

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

Dashboards are the New Face of Business Intelligence

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Why are dashboards so popular? You can't walk into an Information Technology department without seeing a project plan for some executive dashboard or performance dashboard project. Are dashboards really the new face of business intelligence? Why? Yes, I firmly believe that dashboards are here to stay. This is why: Users find dashboards easy to use without insulting their intelligence. Partioning information into chunks mirrors the way humans naturally think. IT departments find them fun to build. Business groups find them easy to fund. Executives like the distillation of large
