Knutsford, UK (PRWEB UK) 7 February 2014
Matillion, the fast-growing provider of cloud-based Business Intelligence and Self-Service Reporting solutions, has today announced the availability of its latest free-to-download 97-page e-book, How to Create Compelling Business Dashboards.
Following on from the success of the company’s previous e-book, Successfully Implementing Business Intelligence, published last year, the guide aims to share best practice in business dashboard design.
“From what type of chart to use, to tips on effective layouts, and advice on the best fonts and colours to use, How to Create Compelling Business Dashboards contains a wealth of practical advice on how to create better business dashboards—whatever your Business Intelligence system,” said Matthew Scullion, managing director at Matillion.
The easy-to-read, system-agnostic guide contains eight richly-illustrated chapters, each explaining the guiding principles of the topics covered, together with end-of-chapter summaries and best practice examples. The guide is structured as follows:
Chapter 1: Factors to consider before you start
Chapter 2: What to include on your dashboard
Chapter 3: Aesthetics: colour and typography
Chapter 4: Data visualisations and charts
Chapter 5: Structure
Chapter 6: Functionality
Chapter 7: Real-life examples of good and bad dashboards
Chapter 8: How your finished dashboard should look
“There are too many examples out there of badly-designed business dashboards that don’t help people to make better decisions,” summed up Scullion. “Our goal in publishing this free e-book was to help businesses to make a genuine difference to the effectiveness of their business dashboards.”
