The NGS Dashboard Designer is a complete information delivery solution that gives an organization the ability to view, present, and interact with live business data in a flexible, graphical format from a Web browser. Dashboard presentations can include charts, tables, gauges, calendars, maps, and other visualization tools to help make business information easy to see, understand, and analyze at a glance.

Financial reports, management scorecards, sales performance presentations, board-level reports, and other critical information can be quickly transformed from static numbers into dynamic, interactive presentations that support
filtering along various business dimensions, what-if analysis, and more. No programming is required. In fact, most dashboard designers are business analysts with Web page and/or Microsoft® Excel skills and a feel for how best
to graphically represent the underlying business data. End users can point and click their way through the dashboards with ease.

What’s Included

The NGS Dashboard Designer includes a Windows-based development module for dashboard creators and a license to distribute dashboards to users.

How It Works

The NGS Dashboard Designer leverages NGS- IQ™, IBM i (AS/400, iSeries, System i) DB2 on i, Microsoft Excel, and Adobe® Flash Player. In addition to creating dashboards, you can also use this tool to create Web portals, custom Web reporting menus, and Web pages that serve as run-time input panels to NGS-IQ queries.

NGS-IQ queries extract the needed data and create the XML files and Excel sheets linked to the dashboards. Developers design the dashboards by choosing the graphic components they want to present the data. Then, they export the dashboards as files that can be displayed, distributed via e-mail, or published on any Web server.

Dashboards also can be exported to HTML; Microsoft PowerPoint™, Outlook™, Word, and SharePoint™; and Adobe Acrobat PDF.

Users can instantly take advantage of the dashboard design to view charts and maps as well as filter and analyze the data. Developers can design dashboards to update when a user clicks on a refresh button or to update automatically when the supporting queries are processed through a job scheduling utility.

Software Requirements

The NGS Dashboard Designer development environment requires NGS-IQ, Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Excel, and the royalty-free Adobe Flash Player software.

Dashboard viewers do not need Windows, Microsoft Excel or the NGS Dashboard Designer development software.

Security

You may deploy your finished dashboards from the Integrated File System (IFS) of IBM i which gives you the ability to use familiar IBM i security functions to control access. By using different folders of the IFS to store dashboard data intended for different users or locations, multiple users can share a dashboard but only view their data.
