On one screen, dashboards display all important and success-relevant information graphically and/or tabularly – in a condensed, highly aggregated, clear and transparent way. As a result, all relevant key figures can be read and monitored at a glance. Drill-downs and options for data filtering are often available to facilitate a work flow with a maximally effective and target-oriented character.
Optimal Information Design is also essential in terms of dashboards: The visual reception of information is based on the principles of human perception. Thus the design should be as comprehensible and descriptive as possible – ideally based on the quasi-standard IBCS® and accompanied by simple, intuitive user handling.
Compared to conventional reporting solutions, dashboards do not present information in a print-optimized way: Instead, they focus display on screens. The presentation of the respective information details thus fits on just one or a few screen pages. As a result, only information with real relevance is compressed into a format which can be understood quickly and easily.
This is possible statically or dynamically resp. in real time – depending on the reporting purpose and the requirements of the respective consumer. The SAP Analytics Cloud (SAC), for example, can serve as a basic reporting tool. The SAC has already implemented the IBCS® set of rules and therefore does not require any further add-ons from external manufacturers.
The handling of the SAC software can be learnt quite easily and quickly: Even without deep technical knowledge, meaningful and IBCS®-compliant representations can be generated in very short time.
