To complete the set from http://www.netsuite.com/portal/resource/interactive_dash_main.shtml, here is the CFO or Controller role’s view of the Wholesale Distribution enterprise dashboard. Obviously, the focus is now on the financial data. In the KPI portlet, we now have indicators such as Check Promised, Overdue Invoices, Income, Expenses, Profit, Total Bank Balance, Receivables, Payable. And if you look at the Tasks portlet of the enterprise dashboard, you’ll see financial staff tasks such as Create Estimate, New Contracts, Special Orders, etc.
Homework: If you are on an enterprise dashboard project, do yourself a favor and take a look at Enterprise Dashboards: Design and Best Practices for IT, the only book on actually implementing enterprise dashboards.
So what or who is The Dashboard Spy? As his about page states, The Dashboard Spy is just a guy interested in the design of enterprise dashboards. He could not find any executive dashboard design source books (or even screenshots of real business dashboards) and so set about creating his own. Finally convinced to post his extensive collection of dashboard screenshots online, he was amazed to find how popular it has become. If you have a nice screenshot of a digital dashboard, balanced scorecard, or any business intelligence graphic to share, please send an email to info _at_ dashboardspy.com. Also check out The Dashboard Spy’s favorite books on business dashboards.
