Aggregating Dashboard Data - Users can easily aggregate data and create comprehensive reports from different data sources using InetSoft's award-winning dashboard software. View the example below to learn more about the Style Intelligence solution. To define grouping and aggregation columns (summary columns) for a Data table, follow these steps: 1. Right-click the table's title row and select 'Group and Aggregate'. This opens the 'Aggregate' dialog box. 2. Select the grouping columns by clicking the 'Group' check box next to one or more column names. When you enable grouping for a column, by default each distinct value in the column defines its own group. Aggregation is then based on these groups. For example, if you group a column of state names, each distinct state name will define its own group, and aggregate val­ues will be computed for each of those groups. 3. (Optional) If a user-defined group matches the grouping column data format (String, Double, etc.), you can select the user-defined group from the right-side menu. User-defined groups give you greater flexibility in partitioning the entries in a column for grouping. If you select a user-defined grouping from the menu, aggregations will be based on that user-defined grouping...

Analogy About Building Dashboards - Today’s podcast is about ‘Top Lessons About Dashboarding.’ I thought it would be fun to start out with an analogy that you like to make about building dashboards. Now, with all this talk about people wanting to try analytical dashboards, I give this analogy of how I have a dashboard in my car which takes up a huge amount of real estate, yet it has very little information. I have a tachometer, but I don’t have a stick shift, right? It is an automatic car. Why do I need a tachometer? My oil gauge and temperature gauge might as well be painted on because they never move. And I look at my gas gauge once to see if I have enough gas. And I live in California so I don’t care how fast I am driving. I just drive fast. So I have this dashboard that is completely inactionable and unintelligent, yet it takes up the majority of my car. What do dashboards need to have to be truly effective? When I take that analogy and place it in the business world and people say they want dashboards, I look at basically how you need to have information coming to the business user that is timely and relevant so they can actually do something about it...

Analytical Supply Chain Dashboard Example - As you can see atop, dashboards are compelling tools for doing just that. The model dashboard provided tracks many key indicators of performance in a highly visual and comprehensive manner. The first chart shows man hours versus time produced for each type of material produced. Similarly the remaining three bar graphs track important metrics for running a successful business: tools, errors, workers, production time, and products. The bubble graph to the right shows client orders by price and time to produce. It utilizes a unique visual style to display this information in a compact manner. The boxes and calendar on the bottom portion of this display, coupled with the assortment of colors, are what make InetSoft's solution truly unique. By checking off various boxes or modifying the date, users can instantaneously update their dashboard to display information relevant to specific interests. In the top-left most display, man hours and production time have been mashed up in a diagram to provide correspond with specific materials. Employed properly, large quantities of data can be displayed in a meager space...

Analytical vs Operations Dashboards - Analytical or Operations Dashboards? Operations Dashboard There are two main varieties of dashboards: analytical dashboards and operational dashboards. Analytics dashboards are just that, analytical. They are created for the sole purpose of gaining knowledge and insight from data. Users of these dashboards seek insight into the past and the future, wondering what happened and what's to come. Operations dashboards, on the other hand, are not created specifically to learn. They exist to manage the day-to-day occurences of a business. Like anytical applications, operations dasahboards are capable of revealing data trends. Their key function, however, comes from their ability to drill down through current intelligence to get alerts and recognize probable issues that may arise...

App Developer Performance Dashboards - Are you an app developer looking for dashboard software to monitor your portfolio performance? InetSoft offers a easy-to-use web-based application that can be deployed in days not months. Like all service providers, mobile app developers need to track monthly and daily active users, ARPU, and churn. Other key metrics particular to application providers are downloads and conversion rates. InetSoft's lightweight dashboard application provides easy-to-use tools to design whatever monitoring and analytical dashboads are desired by the marketing function, finance department, or c-suite. Another key area for service providers like app developers is customer churn.

This kind of dashboards allows monitoring the stickiness of apps, the ultimate key metric for a solution provider. Other important engagement metrics that can be compared across applications and acquisition periods include conversion rates.

Automating Dashboards - The fact that I know that something changed was good, but my assumption was bad. So you really have to follow up and ask questions, and make sure you are interpreting the data correctly. We used to have an associate vice president who would look at data and make really inappropriate conclusions from the data. And it did nothing but hurt our ability to address the data correctly. You do have to make sure that you are using data in an appropriate way. Once you do have that data formatted as useful information, that you it can really help you accelerate the operations efficiency of your department. It can also help you get the things that you need. When we went to build this dashboard, these were my requirements. I want no manual intervention. Why? It doesn’t happen. The data load might happen the first few times...
