Since these IT Application Development Project Dashboard screenshots from http://www.itcsoftware.com/art-globalsoftwaremgtIntro.htm are so big and full of great dashboard content, I'll have to span them across several posts. We start with an enterprise dashboard screenshot that looks to be a view suitable for showing a client. They would be able to see at-a-glance the project health of multiple development efforts along with milestone tracking and high-level counts of requirements and defects. The second executive dashboard screenshot below shows an internal view for the IT service provider. Obviously, you would not want to show the client the analysis of project profitability, resource utilization and internal productivity. By the way, this view offers a rare peek into the world of IT consulting management.

Nice screenshots. Well worth studying.

Here is the internal IT consulting company management view. Note the colored arrows showing profitability:
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.
