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.
The next dashboard screenshot show the profile tab with a user’s subscribed content categories.
This dashboard screenshot focuses on news and reports.
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.
