Let's Speak BO Webinar Nationwide Transportation Company’s KPI Dashboard Customer Case Study January 24 2017

Tuesday, January 24th at 10AM PT/1PM ET

A major national transportation company had the requirements to be able to quickly model and visualize their data through some form of application, providing rapid insight into performance of several KPIs– trend, actual and targets. Their goal was to provide users access to the dashboard both from iPad and desktop to view this important information in a timely manner.

After they looked into several software solutions, Business Objects Dashboards 4.1 (formally Xcelsius) was identified as the ideal tool and InfoSol was engaged to developed the application for them. InfoBurst Enterprise was not only heavily used for caching of their vast amounts of data, but it also played a key role in the success of the project to support drill down through multiple hierarchies and the ability to compare actual vs. target and trending analysis at each hierarchy level.

In this customer case study session, Runali Ghosh, expert Dashboard Developer to the project will share how Dashboards 4.1 and InfoBurst created this powerful application as she will demonstrate some of the unique features used to achieve the functionality rarely considered possible to be done by a dashboard design software.
