Building Award Winning Enterprise Dashboards – Nice documentation of building an SAP Analytics dashboard with a FLEX frontend

Filed under: Dashboard Screenshots — dashboardspy @ 5:28 am

What is valuable for us Dashboard Spies when we look at today’s award-winning enterprise dashboard example is not what airline industry KPIs are shown, the integration of a document viewer, or even the fact that an award was won, but that the implementation team created a nice document explaining their process. Although the project pdf is really a sales support document, it has great design and implementation value and we should all flip through the 28 pages. Several dashboards are shown as well as closeups of various tables. The dashboard is an SAP Analytics dashboard created by CubeServ AG at a show in 2005. Here I show a dashboard screenshot:

Assignment: Are you OK with the content in my blog? From excel dashboards and custom-built business scorecards, to xcelsius and flex-based visualizations, the dashboard screenshots are intended to educate by example both what to do and what not to do on the design of a business intelligence dashboard. It is intended that these hits and misses both 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.

Thanks to the astute Dashboard Spy reader who found a slight error in the documentation. See the comments of this post.
