Handling Out-of-Control Super-Sized Dashboards

IBIS 2019 Butterfly Banner

Tuesday, June 18th 4:45pm – 5:45pm

Xcelsius (SAP BO Dashboards) is an incredibly powerful and useful tool that can produce visually dynamic applications that change the way we consume data. But, all tools have their limits, and there are occasions where a dashboard gets built up so large and complex, with so many components, connectors and data, it can start causing application issues and become unstable. Join Taylor as he discusses issues faced like this in real-world scenarios, and solutions to fix dashboards like these.

Using Tableau with WebI: From Novice to Knowledge

IBIS 2019 Butterfly Banner

Wednesday, June 19th 10:00am – 11:00am

As report designers, we need to use the best tool for each job. With more than a thousand hands-on consumers of 32,000+ reports, Web Intelligence is our go-to reporting solution at the University System of New Hampshire. Then came Tableau, with its bubble charts and heat maps and dashboards and data stories.

Not to worry! Tableau experts were hired, so we WebI developers could stay happily ensconced in our reporting world. That is until this year, when our supervisor tasked each WebI developer with creating a Tableau solution using WebI data. This case study will walk through our learning process, some pitfalls and best practices and demonstrate the creation of a call center dashboard using WebI data and Tableau visualizations.

Unsure Which Dashboarding Tool to Use?

IBIS 2019 Butterfly Banner

Wednesday, June 19th 1:15pm – 2:15pm

HTML5, PowerBI, Tableau, Web Intelligence…. What is happening with Adobe and Flash? What about Java? What are my alternatives? In this topic, we will take a look at all of the above. Frankly and sincerely, there has never been a better time for InfoBurst for Dashboards than now. Clients using InfoBurst are in THE BEST position to transition to practically any dashboarding front end display tool without needing to modify the data source.

Are you using QAAWS (Query as a Web Service) to power SAP Dashboards to flash or HTML5? Move to InfoBurst to offload the sessions and load. Are you wanting to transition to Tableau or Power BI? Go ahead – your XDCs can work there! Want to use SQL directly as a data source for some dashboards? Sure! Need to improve performance with cache queries instead of huge upfront queries? InfoBurst is the expert! Need to expose some data externally but not link directly to an internal data source? You guessed it – CAN do! And so much more. If you aren’t sure what dashboard front end you will be using over the next few years and/or if you want to give your users the option to use various front ends, then now is the absolute BEST time for InfoBurst for Dashboards.
