Dashboards help everyone from managers to sales people monitor multiple indicators at a glance. Appealing visualizations are more than just executive eye-candy. They enable alignment, insight, and action for workers at all levels of an organization. Initially, IT had to custom develop dashboards, but with new modules such as visual data discovery, business users themselves have moved to assemble their own dashboards to mash data together from different data sources.
In this webinar, industry analyst and author Cindi Howson highlights trends in dashboard usage, best practices for when IT or the business should develop dashboards, and industry innovations influencing dashboard design. She will present mini case studies of how leading companies have evolved from reports to powerful dashboards. MicroStrategy will demonstrate how it empowers organizations to successfully deliver both types of dashboards – both business-user-created, do-it-yourself dashboards and IT-created, operational dashboards – from one, single platform.
In this informative webcast, you will learn:
• Dashboard use cases and the differences of when IT or the business should create dashboards
• How mobile and cloud are influencing dashboard design
• The role of visual data discovery
• Insights from three leading companies on their journey to dashboards
