If you are looking to impress your boss and build a web or windows forms application that many people within your company need, then think about building digital dashboards. Every company has incredible amounts of data, with the need to analyze it more effectively ; that is where dashboards become incredibly important.

What is a digital dashboard?

Digital Dashboards are critical data visualization tools for managers and other decision makers to quickly analyze Key Performance Indicators (KPI's) and other critical corporate data. Being able to have rapid access to information, in an easy to interpret and concise manner can make organizations run more effectively. Being able to have the option to drill down into the data is also critical, in order to gain insight into more specific areas. Many people at your organization require dashboards, but don't know how to get access to them (which is where developers step in).

How do I make digital dashboards?

Dashboards templates can be easily created using Dundas Software technology. Dundas Chart for .NET as well as Dundas Gauge for .NET are the perfect components for developers to use to create advanced, dynamic dashboard applications. Both are 100% native .NET components, and integrate seamlessly into Visual Studio .NET, with full F1 help, design wizards, full sample frameworks with source code for sample dashboards, and much more. Better yet, they look fantastic, with full customizations and sophisticated features. With the ability to bind to practically any time of data, hooking dashboards up to existing databases is simple.

Use award winning Dundas technology to easily build:

  • Management Reporting Dashboards
  • Sales Analysis Dashboards
  • Forecasting Dashboards
  • Financial/Stock Dashboards with full business intelligence
  • Much more

Examples of Dashboards in action

A picture is worth a thousand words. This is why we offer screenshots and have working samples of our products working in tandem in dashboards. Having the flexibility of working with the Data Visualization components themselves, corporate developers have complete control over the visual presentation, and can seamlessly integrate dashboards into existing web/windows forms applications. There are also examples and online demos of Dundas Dashboard technologies in action at a great resource for information on 'everything digital dashboard'.
