Got Dashboard? Graph showing dashboard deployments by company size

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — dashboardspy @ 11:37 am

Looks like there is plenty more growth to come in the enterprise dashboard space. Take a look at the graph below from this computerworld article. When business intelligence dashboards reach a critical mass, and you're fielding all those head hunter calls, you'll be glad you were a reader of The Dashboard Spy "back in the day". This type of graph, by the way, is not the most intuitive to use for many people, but it does pack in a lot of information in a small space.

Dashboard Implementation Statistics

Homework: Prepare yourself now for a bright career in dashboarding. We can't call you, so you have to call us!! Seriously, this is going to be a hot IT topic everywhere, so get prepared. Start with these books on business intelligence 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_ Also check out The Dashboard Spy's favorite books.
