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.

VOIP Enterprise Dashboard - tracking telecommunications system performance metrics

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

This is a digital dashboard submission by an Italian Dashboard Spy. Grazie, signore. We have here an enterprise dashboard system for use in a telecommunications company to track performance metrics of a Voice Over IP or VOIP network. The various gauges track the number of calls by various criteria. I'm puzzled as to what the number labels in the metrics mean but that's simply because of lack of subject matter expertise. I suppose they represent certain telephone lines or groups? Also, what exactly are the "Units" in the Last 5 Minutes of Calls metric? How is volume measured? So what or wh

Excel Tag Clouds

Here's a pointer to an excellent Microsoft Excel tutorial that discusses how to create word tag clouds in excel. Specifically, it shows you how to insert Wordle tag clouds in your excel dashboards.

For example, here's a tag cloud for the Springstein song, "Born in the USA": It was created in wordle.net. Cool, right?

Difference Between BI and BAM

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (8)

A Dashboard Spy reader wanted to know the difference between BAM (Business Activity Monitoring) and BI (Business Intelligence). He caught part of a BAM software presentation from an enterprise software vendor and was hard-pressed to see the difference between what he saw and what BI systems as he knew them offered. Let's do a little research and look at a BAM dashboard to see if we can explain the difference. First off, let's look at a Business Activity Monitoring dashboard to see what type of metrics might be on it. Here's the iWay Activity Monitor: It would appear that BAM is about real

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

Digital Dashboard Leads Way to Cyber Security Readiness

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (1)

Digital dashboard designers today take a lot for granted. By that I mean they assume that their users have access to broadband speeds as well as modern browsers. Remember when such assumptions certainly could NOT be made? Back in the day, website designers offered text versions of even simple web pages. Have you ever heard of offerring both a full (rich interface) and text version of a digital dashboard? That brings us to today's digital dashboard example. Did you know that in the U.S., all 50 states and the District of Columbia jointly run a collaborative dashboard that tracks the nation'

Data Visualization in 3D with a Stereogram Dashboard

| Dashboard Screenshots | Comments (0)

Stereograms are those old-fashioned postcards that have two pictures side by side mounted in front of an optical device that focuses them together to form a 3D picture. Antique shops often have boxes of these sepia classics from victorian times. Years later, these became popular again with the Viewmaster toy. No doubt when you were a child, you peered through your Viewmaster at 3D Disney images. I had a shiny red one with pictures of Donald Duck riding the Disneyland monorail. What does this trip down memory lane have to do with enterprise dashboards? Well, stick with The Dashboard Spy for a
