Dashboard: How to define Dashboard architecture?
We propose to share you several blog tickets about Dashboards. The second one will be about:
What do you need to define Dashboard architecture?
I’m going to present you ten points to define dashboard architecture (not design – it will be presented on third ticket). It’s important to check these points to be sure that you have a strong architecture for short, mid and long term processes. Follow these points can help you for your success.
For each point give a note between 1 and 3 as:
1 – if you are not sure that all managers, designers and users understand the point or if it’s difficult to define the point into your organization
2 – if people into your organization understand the point but cannot define it
3 – if people into your organization understand the point and can define it
Dashboard architecture requirements
- Are you sure to know the kind of dashboard you want to build?
I’m not sure = 1 point. I see what you mean = 2 points. My co-workers and I see exactly what you mean and why you are asking for= 3 points
- Frequency is an important word in dashboard world. What kind(s) of frequency load is your requirement? (mandatory automation is linked directly with frequency)
- Real time
