Webinar Event: BI Dashboards Best Practices
5 Sep, 2012 - Lachlan James



Thinking of deploying Business Intelligence (BI)? So are your competitors. Gartner’s 2012 CIO survey showed that BI is the No. 1 technology priority for CIOs this year.

And the most important, fundamental, tool for delivering your BI information to your users? Dashboards.

Dashboards were rated as the No.1 strategic BI technology in Dresner Advisory Services’ 2012 Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence Market Study. In fact, 94% of respondents rated dashboards as “important”, “very important” or “critical” to the success of their BI program.

But, data visualization expert, Stephen Few, has declared that the majority of today’s BI dashboards fail.

Register for this Webinar event – BI Dashboard Best Practices – and learn how to deliver best practice dashboards, achieve high ROI and create BI success; not failure.

“Underpin the success of your BI project and experience high ROI by supplying users with easy-to-understand, relevant and timely information - via best practice dashboards - that provide a decisive pathway to fact-based action”
- Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie



“When built properly with effective use of graphics and information objects, dashboards deliver targeted data ’in context’ to the business workers, allowing these workers to make better, more timely business decisions. A good, effective dashboard application will save the business workers time, and that is the key reason why dashboards are gaining in popularity”

– Principle Analyst for Information Delivery at Forrester Research, Keith Gile


What’s a dashboard?

Few defines BI dashboards as: “a visual display of the most important information needed to achieve one or more objectives consolidated and arranged on a single screen so the information can be monitored at a glance.”
