A cast-iron bathtub and an Xcelsius dashboard sure don't seem related, unless you were me last week.
Most of my conversations occurred either with a general contractor or with BI experts, although ironically the discussions often centered on the same theme: effective design. Where's the best place for the new bathtub now they we've knocked a bathroom wall down? Where should the most important information appear on a dashboard and how much of it should be available?
And the million-dollar question, sometimes in both cases: What colors do you want?
A good look is universal, whether it's based digitally with a dashboard design that is user-friendly or based on wood and tile for a bathroom layout that is family-friendly.
I'll spare you the deliberations for bathroom style that my wife and I had. However, I would like to know what you think of dashboard design. Check out this poll and cast your vote on what the most effective design element is for a useful dashboard:
I also hope to see some of you in the BusinessObjects
sessions at Sapphire next week.
