Service Level Management (SLM) is the process of ensuring that IT services are linked to business processes and providing detailed visibility of service. By monitoring SLAs (service level agreements) and operating level agreements (OLAs), business and technology units can talk in terms that represent a common denominator in departments that used to be world's apart. SLA dashboards can not only help visualize the data, but bring the management issues out in the open where they belong. Thanks to long time Dashboard Spy reader and availability dashboard enthusiast Ken Vanderweel of Nimsoft Inc,

Internal Communications Dashboard from Klipfolio

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Business dashboards communicate information to various stakeholders across the enterprise. The challenge has been to make sure that the message gets through to the intended audience. I've posted in the past of how one company, Serence (now Klipfolio - more on that in a moment.) has tackled the idea of "the unvoidable dashboard", by developing the idea of placing dashboards right on the computer desktop. The idea is simple. Why make users log into an application, when the information can be seen at a glance right on the dashboard? Today's dashboard screenshot is a Klipfolio Desktop Dashboard t

Difference between Balanced Scorecard and Enterprise Dashboard

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (3)

Update: The topic of "dashboard" vs. "scorecard" is still alive and kicking about in business intelligence circles. Take a look at this recent post: What is the difference between a scorecard and a dashboard? A Dashboard Spy reader who is getting involved in a balanced scorecard reporting project asked me the difference between enterprise dashboards and balanced scorecards. He was getting confused between all the different approaches that his team could take. We had an interesting conversation with a couple of interesting screenshots that we passed back and forth. I thought it valuable

Geckoboard Dashboard

In this dashboard example post, we look at the realtime business analytics dashboard called Geckoboard. It just officially launched, but we've been watching this widget-driven dashboard closely it while it's been in beta. Businesses these days have quite an extraordinary amount of data to look at. Most companies track web analytics, marketing metrics, e-mail statistics, customer support numbers, project management issues and much much more. And that's just the marketing department! Now that dashboards are popular, management is finding that they have multiple dashboards to log into and mo

Space Weather Dashboard Screenshot - real time tracking of solar winds, x-rays, alerts

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

When we say that enterprise dashboards are suitable for providing a bird's-eye view of anything in the universe, we need to point out that even the universe itself is fair game for monitoring via a digital dashboard. Thanks to the Red Orbit Space Weather Dashboard, we can monitor in real time, space conditions such as auroral activity, solar wind movements, geomagnetic index changes, x-ray flux, and much more. The neat images are of the sun and the thumbnail graphs link to realtime graphs. So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy int

Dashboard Topic: Excel Dashboards - A Report from the Trenches. Every once in a while, I get a submission of a business dashboard from a Dashboard Spy reader that makes me stop and really think about what dashboarding really is. I'm not trying to get philosophical on you, but we all live in a day and age where everything looks shiny and slick - often at the expense of real value. The dashboard vendors come and show us all these beautiful interfaces and we ooh and ahh, wowed by the eye candy. I sometimes think we buy reporting packages and engage vendors based more on how beautiful they can ma

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

Service Desk Dashboard - tracking support call KPIs for a helpdesk operation

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (1)

Service Desk Dashboards: For the enterprise’s IT trouble-shooters, a service desk dashboard is likely one of the most valuable tools in their collection. Few teams in the enterprise suffer from more real-time urgency than the service desk which makes the need for an effective help desk dashboard more acute. First we examine a typical help desk dashboard, then we have a quick glance at a desktop dashboard for service desk dashboard reporting. This peek at a support desk KPI enterprise dashboard comes from a company running the HEAT service management suite to optimize its IT service functi

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

Manufacturing Shop Floor Dashboard Screenshot - status, metrics of a bottling line

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (1)

When applying the concept of a digital dashboard to an assembly line environment, there is the challenge of graphically depicting the states of each stage of the process. Take the example of a bottling line. Do you have one dashboard for the entire line showing small metrics panels for each station, or do you have a separate dashboard for each machine? How do you clearly depict all this for the user? The experts at oeeimpact.com offer this clever approach. The business dashboard screenshot below shows a 3D sketch of the Filler, Labeller and Cartoner machines in a bottling line. Below each mac

Intuition through Business Intelligence

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (2)

Dashboards: Business intelligence tools, Business intuition enablers, or both? The role of intuition in the business place has certainly grown in the "softer", more people-focused areas of the enterprise. Note the number of books available on topics such as emotional quotients, consumer desire and team building. Decisions are made based not only on the cold hard facts (i.e. "the numbers") but by more nebulous decision criteria. Can the same be said, however, for the more analytical parts of the business enterprise? Is there room for intuition when it comes to business intelligence? Are numbe

Media Coverage Dashboard - metrics for tracking PR campaign results

A Dashboard Spy reader wrote me to ask for a greater focus on KPIs. He says that while the visual aspects are important, it's the KPI metrics that make or break a dashboard application. I agree. So to start off the more intense study of KPIs and metrics, here is a posting with plenty of metrics to chew on for marketing types. RADAR is an enterprise dashboard product from hillandknowlton.ca that automatically tracks over 8000 media sources looking for mentions of your company.

Multiple Language Infographics

Information visualization analysts in countries with multiple language preferences by the user community have to work harder than the rest of us. Here's a look at an infographic that comes in an English language version as well as the original Hebrew version. This one in particular makes for a good example. You don't just have the challenge of translation, but all the left to right, right to left parsing issue. It's almost twice the work!

GMaps Plugin for Xcelsius Dashboards

The ComputerWorld Best Places to Work Dashboard was a mashup that featured a Google Maps component. I particularly liked seeing that on the dashboard, so I decided delve into the details of how Google Maps was incorporated into the Xcelsius 2008 dashboard. It turns out that the functionality is achieved through Xcelsius plugins from Centigon Solutions. Ryan Goodman, the founder of Centigon (and Dashboard Spy reader and contributor - see Xcelsius Gas Price Data Visualization) was kind enough to participate in a Dashboard Spy interview. He explains their approach as well as his opinions on Xce

In a recent Dashboard Spy post about the Federal Dashboard (see http://enterprise-dashboard.com), I lauded the efforts of Federal CIO Vivek Kundra, especially his recent work with the IT Dashboard. Some of you probably thought I was a bit over the top with all my gushing praise about the dashboard and my claim that this ushers in a new level of user consciousness about business dashboards. Well, the buzz just keeps on growing, and I'm more in love with the IT Dashboard project than ever! Remember this picture I showed of a certain user taking a look at the Federal IT Dashboard?

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
