SAS: The Ultimate Dashboard Machine


Author: Jeff Wright and Gregory S. Nelson - ThotWave Technologies, LLC.


Leaders want to align their organizations around strategic goals and metrics. Knowledge workers need ready access to data about what is happening right now. IT seeks to make information available and useful to the business, and yet observe appropriate security policies. For many organizations, all of these goals are coming together in a single focal point: dashboards. SAS is known for its advanced analytics and broad suite of business intelligence offerings, so it should be no surprise that there is more than one way to implement a dashboard initiative using SAS technologies. This paper will begin by reviewing the objectives that organizations normally have in creating dashboards. Next, several best practices for effective visual display of information on dashboards will be presented. Finally, the paper will describe a variety of techniques for creating dashboards using SAS, including the new BI Dashboard tool, SAS/GRAPH, custom web development, and the SAS Portal.
