Inside Dundas BI
September 2018 Issue
In this issue, we focus on designing dashboards for different devices and display sizes. Our newest blog - Maximize Your Office's Real Estate - Mounted Dashboards that Drive Change - covers how to design wall-mounted dashboards to ensure maximum business metric visibility. We also have a webinar - Designing Stunning Dashboards for Any Device - coming up on October 30th. And last but not least, we will be kicking off our Dundas BI 6 Beta Program shortly. Dundas BI customers can sign up now for the Beta Program in The Cube - Dundas' VIP Program. Look for the "Dundas BI 6 BETA" tile for next steps. More details will be available via email next week! Enjoy this issue...
Designing for the Right Display Size
Your users demand that their data be accessible to them on any device, from mobile, to tablet, to laptop, to large desktop monitors, and all the way up to wall mounted TVs. How can you make sure users get the optimal experience to access and analyze data on those changing screen sizes? If you’ve designed a dashboard in the past, you probably know how important your dashboard real-estate is, as every pixel can make a difference in your design. Dundas BI was designed to give you choice in regards to the size your dashboards will be across different devices. Whether your dashboard should automatically respond to the screen size, scale to maximize the available space, or fit specific dimensions, Dundas BI has you covered.
Enriching Your Analysis with Additional Context
When it comes to analytics, context is often as king as content. Enriching your data exploration with additional context that isn’t available in your original data set is essential to helping yourself and others better understand data. To make it easy for self-service users and to avoid the need to go back to IT on every request to add context, Dundas BI offers many tools that simplify that task. Starting from easy ways to add individualized targets in the form of contextual measures, to 2 click period-over-period analysis, to members grouping, and down to the ability to add advanced analytics and formulas calculations in a simple interface, the metric set tools are enabling anyone to add context.
