The Dashboard Spy

Song about Dashboards and BI

Dashboard designers know how executives, project sponsors and business users love bells and whistles on their dashboards. In fact, much of our time is spent towards protecting over-excited design participants from themselves. Just look at how the information visualization crowd goes totally nuts when gradients appear in pie charts (or, for that matter, when pie charts are chosen instead of those teeny weeny sparklines!).

In the spirit of unnecessary multimedia elements in business dashboards, I proudly present a song about the business intelligence dashboard. What? Is there such a thing? Of course, it’s the Dashboard Spy theme song!

Have a listen and tell me what you think:

  1. Hello Dashboard Spy. I enjoy your blog about business intelligence dashboards. It is good to see such information. I have been studying this topic for many months now and am glad to see so many examples. I will visit your site often.

    I was very interested in seeing your post about “KPI Requirements for Dashboard Projects – Using the KPI. Thank you for the information about this dashboard topic. There is a dashboard project at work about this subject.

    The graphic is very nice. I like the colors and the questions are very interesting – What Question? Who’s Asking, Why is it Important, etc. I think it is very good. I also like the layout of the screen. I have a question about the boxes on the right side. Is the user supposed to type the answers to the questions into the boxes?
