As mentioned in the Dashboard Spy post “Evolution of Dashboard Design Aesthetics“, there has been a trend of business intelligence dashboards and Balanced Scorecard Designs adopting the Web 2.0 look. Recently we’ve seen a lot of positive feedback on Web 2.0 inspired designs such as the Museum Dashboard. Web 2.0 design elements include the reflection of the logo, gradient colors, rounded corners, etc.
Today we have a contribution of a slickly designed dashboard. It’s from a Dashboard Spy reader who grabbed a sneak peek at an upcoming Balanced Scorecard / Dashboard product from a start up company. Their dashboard is in what he called an early alpha phase. It’s definitely Web 2.0ish in its design sensibility. Look at the shiny reflections! He calls it “Balanced Scorecard Meets Facebook”. It certainly has that modern feel.
Here is a screen grab. Click on the image to bring up a larger screenshot. After the image I’ll post some technical details.
From the creators of the dashboard:
The technology behind the dashboard:
- Adobe Flex
Business Intent: BI Framework with compelling features for companies introducing Business Intelligence into their organizations for the first time. Sort of Balanced Scorecard Meets Web 2.0
Design Process: This application was inspired by your Dashboard Spy blog and all the dashboards I have seen there (So no gauges in this app!)
“I hope to send you more screenshots once we get done with part 1 of the project”.
Thanks, I hope that’s soon as I want to see more of this dashboard for sure!. The Dashboard Spy.
