The love for BusinessObjects was in the air at this year’s InfoSol Business Intelligence Seminar (IBIS). With attendees sharing their love for BusinessObjects, networking with others who share the same passion, and attending many hands-on training and seminar sessions to expand their knowledge. One of the highlights of IBIS was the InfoSol 2018 Best BI Dashboards Awards.
Dashboards continue to be the primary interface of most business intelligence solutions. Every year, the creativity and ingenuity just keeps getting better.
Best Business Dashboard Award
The InfoSol 2018 Best Business Dashboard Award went to The Waldinger Corporation for their Technician Dashboard.
This dashboard is a mobile dashboard that is set to deliver requested information to technicians via their iPad. It also allows them to easily set call availability preference via a database write-back. It also allows managers to view technician dashboards from their desktops, providing a focal point for regular mentoring and coaching sessions.
Limitless Business Intelligence Dashboard Award
The InfoSol 2018 Limitless Business Intelligence Dashboard Award went to the Ministry of Health and Prevention, UAE for their PaCE Command Center.
Last year, the same team walked away with the Limitless Business Intelligence Dashboard Award and the year before with the Most Valuable Dashboard Award. This year, they came back and stunned us all again with their PaCE solution taken to a whole new level. The team incorporated a Command Center in a dedicated crisis center with 8 dashboards which are mainly to manage the resources and streamline the patient flow. These dashboards highlight patient level detailed information which can help the command center team to take appropriate action.
Most Valuable Dashboard Award
The InfoSol 2018 Most Valuable Dashboard Award went to the International Humanitarian City for The Humanitarian Logistics Databank.
The Humanitarian Logistics Databank provides the humanitarian community with an information-sharing platform on prepositioned humanitarian aid stocks and flow to enhance emergency preparedness and response. It was developed under the coordination of the International Humanitarian City (IHC) and launched in Dubai in 2018. It will be replicated in 10 other international humanitarian hubs around the world in subsequent years.
The main impact of the platform resides in its information sharing approach with a focus on the humanitarian community working together. Data on prepositioned stocks, their location and availability will enhance preparedness and response capacity to emergencies. Progressively, the Humanitarian Logistics Databank will be linked to multiple webs thus granting a transparent sharing information approach through a multi-window access. It will lead to efficient and cost effective relief efforts and support to the humanitarian supply chain.
The attendees at IBIS were fascinated by seeing these dashboards in action and the screenshots barely do them justice. They certainly inspired many people at IBIS to start new dashboard projects and we look forward to seeing these new dashboards and more at IBIS 2019.
