Computerworld Best Places to Work Dashboard
A Centigon Solutions Dashboard

by Ryan Goodman, http://www.centigonsolutions.comTuesday, February 24, 2009

The evolution of business intelligence and analytics systems has brought us easy-to-use tools designed for everyday business staffers -- as opposed to statisticians or data analysts. By using point-and-click technology, police officers, physicians, accountants and salespeople can mash up and explore structured and unstructured data from far-flung sources in a way that makes the most contextual sense to them.

This dashboard was built using Business Objects' Xcelsius 2008 software. It uses interactive data visualization to navigate and view large amounts of information from Computerworld's 2008 Best Places to Work in IT and 2007 Salary Survey databases. Additionally, Business Objects uses three third-party components from Centigon Solutions Inc., which allow for a Google map mash-up, enhanced aesthetics and a dynamic sort function.

To navigate the dashboard, click on one of the three top tabs, indicating organization size. Based on your selection, the map and table will populate with the names of Computerworld's Best Places to Work. The table just below the map provides drop-down tabs to sort the organizations based on various criteria, such as training and advancement opportunities.

The dashboard also includes the latest news about the companies, live from Google's newsfeed, and current stock quotes for publicly traded companies.
