You are invited to contribute what you gained from SAS Global Forum 2015 in Dallas TX. You can edit and improve anything here (if dramatic, let's discuss on the TALK page); you can add a new 'string' of information; you can add to a 'See also' section; or you can add external links. Authors/presenters at SGF are encouraged to put their papers into sasCommunity.org where they will be part of your presence here. Add them here, and also create a separate article/page. If you prefer to keep a 'low key', you may want to put comments, reflections, and information in the TALK page, where .readers also visit.

Kirk Paul Lafler on modern dashboards

Paper 3487 — Dynamic Dashboards Using SAS®
Dynamic interactive visual displays known as dashboards are most effective when they show essential graphs, tables, statistics, and other information where data is the star. The first rule for creating an effective dashboard is to keep it simple. Striking a balance between content and style, a dashboard should be void of excessive clutter so as not to distract and obscure the information displayed. The second rule of effective dashboard design involves displaying data that meets one or more business or organizational objectives. To accomplish this, the elements in a dashboard should convey a format easily understood by its intended audience. Attendees learn how to create dynamic interactive user- and data-driven dashboards, graphical and table-driven dashboards, statistical dashboards, and drill-down dashboards with a purpose.
