Dashboards With Advanced Visualization Widgets

Posted by Sravan | September 16, 2008 .

MicroStrategy Inc., a leading worldwide provider of Business Integlligence software, released several advanced visualization widgets for its dashboards early this month.

MicroStrategy dashboards, called Dynamic Enterprise Dashboards, are enterprise-level applications that can be useful for analyzing large volumes of complex data in ways not possible (or too arduous) using standard graphical representations. They claim the platform to be the first and only business intelligence architecture to unify reporting, analsysis, and real-time business monitoring.

The new widgets enable users to get a high-level overview and also dig deeper in their analysis and decision-making. On their website they have interactive demos and videos of twelve widgets. The videos elucidate their usage in ways that the demoes don’t themselves allow. Almost half the videos on the page don’t seem to load or think of themselves as podcasts. You can try the first one though (Category Management Dashboard); the commentary using an example of investigations is especially interesting.

The widgets, I think, were built using Adobe Flex 3 and require Adobe Flash Player 9. MicroStrategy allows users to use Adobe Flex 2 or Flex 3 to create customized widgets to include in their dashboards. In this event, MicroStrategy is sponsoring a live webcast event on September 24th called Performance Dashboards: Next Generation.

For those not familiar with dashboards, Tom’s about that dashboard is a must read. For all others, it is worth the time.
