The typical enterprise generates hundreds of management reports on a weekly basis. As companies grow and continue to add new channels, benchmarking and weekly reporting are key to helping top management keep a finger on the pulse of the business. With all those reports to wade through, business executives need a reporting format that provides the information they need at a glance. The corporate dashboard report does just that. It contains a series of dials in a corporate cockpit that reflect the key performance metrics from each department. Dashboarding involves the presentation of key business data in a very concise visual manner. SAP's BusinessObjects offers dynamic, customizable data visualization tools that allow you to create insightful and powerful dashboards from various data sources. These tools are intuitive and appropriate for users of all skill levels. This course provides an introduction to dashboarding.
