One of the most important trends to hit enterprise information systems is the growing importance of dashboard software. To add value, decades of investment in data bases, ERP and business intelligence systems still hinge on how human decision-makers interact with the data these systems capture, organize and present. Dashboard software represents the final link between your enterprise data and the people that act on it. Dashboard software is the last opportunity for your systems investment to be transformed into value-added decisions. All a knowledge-worker needs to do to put the value of dashboard software into context is to transform a typical spreadsheet into a bar chart that can be understood at-a-glance. Extend this experience to every business question across your entire organization and the true potential of dashboard software becomes clear. This is especially true if you can use your real-time dashboard to ask questions of your data that haven't been asked yet.
The effectiveness of every dashboard software application is constrained by the limits of the human that uses it. To exaggerate the point, no organization would spend millions to deploy an ERP system and then present that data in a language its users could not read, or hide the performance metrics in an office far away from the people that need it. But in effect, this is exactly what happens if a user needs to launch a separate dashboard applicationto see his or her key performance metrics (KPIs). For the maximum return on a dashboard software investment, your enterprise dashboard must be front and center for the people that need it. Busy people don't go looking for additional information when they're already swamped with their day to day tasks. This is why a web and mobile dashboard can be such an asset to your enterprise.
