11-15-2010 15:51

While the business intelligence industry has excelled in generating robust technologies that are able to handle huge repositories of data, little progress has been made in turning that data into knowledge. Data dashboards represent the most recent attempt at turning data into actionable decisions. However, they often do not live up to their potential. This demonstration will provide: 1) a historical overview of the evolution of the dashboard; 2) strengths and limitations of the dashboard as a communication, monitoring, and self-evaluation tool; 3) key dashboard and metric design principles and practices; and 4) real-world examples of dashboards using different software packages. Participants will leave the demonstration with a clear understanding of appropriate dashboard applications, how this technology tool can be used to tap into the tremendous power of visual perception to communicate, and vetted resources for putting dashboards to work for their stakeholders.
