Digital Dashboards have been implemented to measure and track an unimaginably wide range of business activity. A Dashboard Spy reader asked me how I keep up my interest in the subject of business intelligence dashboards. After viewing thousands of dashboards, don’t they all blur into a swirl of graphs and blinking lights? I replied that it was the unbelievable diversity of business application for digital dashboards that keep things fresh for me. We went on to chat about some of the more unusual and exotic business dashboards that I have seen.
When asked to point out an example of a dashboard being used on a cool or unusual project, I sent the Dashboard Spy reader this screenhot of a Project Management Dashboard used to track the completion progress of the Large Hadron Collider built by CERN.
This circular graphic represents the progress of the LHC installation. It’s a snapshot from 2007.
Here is a picture of some CERN scientists showing some of their computer screens:
