Thanks to Sarah, a well-placed Dashboard Spy at Periscope Solutions, we have these enterprise dashboards to study. These screenshots show the IOD – Information On Demand Center, an enterprise dashboard solution that marshalls a company’s various information resources.  Users get one-point access to items such as corporate news, analyst reports, research reports, subscriptions, key documents and events info.

The first dashboard shows a user’s main dashboard with personalized portlets containing user views, topics, upcoming events, resources, recent records and recent notes.
