The Dashboard Spy

October 16, 2006

Cell Phone & PDA Business Dashboards – Why aren’t enterprise dashboards part of the mobile revolution yet?

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — dashboardspy @ 3:13 pm

Anybody out there got a dashboard in their pocket? Some enterprise dashboard enthusiasts and I were talking about the dearth of mobile applications in the business dashboard space. Where are all the business dashboards on people’s phones and PDAs? I checked my collection of executive dashboard screenshots and really could not come up with compelling examples of mobile business dashboards. Here is a screenshot of a pocket pc application from 2003 that really never took off. A framework was created for a business dashboard application called  ExecutiveAware. It ran on Microsoft’s Pocket PC platform. The client handled the UI and all that was streamed down to the device was the raw data. The dashboard chart shown here running on the iPAQ looks slick, but how come it didn’t catch on? Anybody else have screenshots of this or any other enterprise dashboard app?

Mobile Business Dashboard
So who is the Dashboard Spy? No one really knows, but his growing collection of enterprise dashboard screenshots has captured the imagination of the executive dashboarding community. From excel dashboards and custom-built business scorecards, to xcelsius and flex-based visualizations, the dashboard screenshots at serve both as nuggets of inspiration and warnings of what not to do on an enterprise dashboard. These hits and misses will enlighten and entertain. Technology-neutral, and always business-driven, the Dashboard Spy website is the place to go to learn about the latest enterprise dashboard packages. Check out the Dashboard Spy’s latest recommended book, Information Dashboard Design: The Effective Visual Communication of Data.

  4. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could
    space it out better?
