"The book tackles the question from the ground up, explaining what dashboards are and what they′re for, before diving deeply into data architecture and visual design, with tons of examples and illustrations. It even explains why dashboards are so popular." ( Accounting Today, June 1–14, 2009)
From the Back Cover
An essential guide for successful deployment of dashboard technology for optimal organizational performance
In order for managers to make the best possible decisions in the shortest amount of time, it is essential to turn data into structured information and then present this information in a format that is easy to read and that supports analysis. Business Dashboards: A Visual Catalog for Design and Deployment is designed to empower companies and government organizations to deploy dashboards that enable their employees to optimize performance management.
Extremely user–friendly, this book is based on three underlying principles: the power of process, providing step–by–step tools that can be used in a real–world implementation; the power of examples, presenting a large number of dashboard examples in order to give you and your project team as many ideas as possible for your dashboard project; and the critical essence of good data architecture, illustrated in the authors′ vision of a solid and carefully planned data architecture to support sustainable and successful dashboards.
A practical resource for what can be a daunting topic, Business Dashboards is filled with real–world examples and provides you with an understanding of:
- Why Dashboards Have Become so Popular
The Role of Dashboards in a Business Intelligence Solution

First several Chapters of the book covers general aspects of the Metrics, KPI's and its importance and the next chapters talks briefly about the BI & DW concepts.
Total pages 286
Screenshot samples of dashboards - 65 pages
List of KPI's (no definition or description) - 50+ pages
May be in the next edition, it will be good if this includes a discussion on the balanced score card and the KPI evaluation (discussed very briefly now). Overall I will give 3 stars for the screenshots and less than 1 star for other aspects in the book.
Then I read this book. Wow, after 30 years in the industry I learned a bunch of new things about Dashboarding techniques and B.I. in general. This book has it all. Great for beginners in the Business Intelligence world as well as seasoned veterans. I recommend this book to all levels of professionals, from the `What is B.I.?' executive, to the `How can I improve my B.I. experience for my users' Data Warehousing professional.
