How we proceed

Properly planned and executed, you will get the most out of your dashboard in the future and our joint project will be a success. The following project model has proven itself for our customers:

First of all, we record your requirements for your new dashboard and create a planning sheet together with you in order to avoid potential errors right from the start. Then, the most important question for your new dashboard is: Which key factors are most important to you and should never be missing? The KPI Score Sheet provides you with the information you need and forms the basis for our project. In addition, we clarify for which target group the dashboard should be created: Would you like an application-oriented dashboard with a focus on special logic and optics? Or do you want it to be a self-service dashboard? Once the planning is complete, our web design and user experience specialists will set up an initial prototype for you.

Dashboard process

After acceptance of the prototype, the technical implementation takes place. We will assist you in choosing the right dashboarding tool. The focus is entirely on the desired requirements and technical conditions.

If the corresponding technical infrastructure for Lumira Designer already exists and special requirements (e.g. special logics, corporate designs) are to be implemented, Lumira Designer is the preferred solution.

If dashboards are to be further developed by the department and business users, the introduction of SAP Analytics Cloud Stories is worthwhile. If dashboards with special logics are required, SAC Analytics Designer can be seen as an alternative to Lumira Designer.

Once the appropriate dashboarding tool has been selected, the data modeling and query creation process continues. In the penultimate project phase, usability is optimized and possible bugs are eliminated. At the end of our project comes the testing phase by the customer, in which last discrepancies are eliminated.

Technical implementation

The frontend implementation can take place in SAP Lumira 2.0 or SAP Analytics Cloud, for example. We already have many years of experience in implementing dashboards and can also implement more complex developments.

Implementation with more complex (coded) dashboards:

The special feature of these solutions is the script development in BI Action Language (BIAL). In addition, customer-specific components can be developed in Lumira Designer if desired functions are missing.
