Speaking Engagements

Come hear us speak at the following conference:

Date: October 27-30, 2015

Location: PASS Summit 2015, Seattle, WA
Topic: Dashboard Design for Maximum Impact


If a dashboard is not appealing they will not come.  If the dashboard is not useful, they will not stay.  This session will show you how to construct a dashboard that gets a message across — not just a collection of charts and tables. 

Creating the content for the dashboard is where the rubber meets the road. We will look at the common graphical content used in dashboards along with how to effectively use tables in a dashboard. We will also examine table-specific content such as microcharts, icons, and exception highlighting. 

Next, we will examine how to design the layout and flow of the dashboard. This is a topic that is not covered in the literature but is very important.  What content should be adjacent on the dashboard? How do you arrange content that should be scanned in a particular order? The session will present principals to guide you through the process of how to arrange the dashboard content and set up appropriate navigation.

Location: Microsoft
Topic: Performance Management Using Project Server 2007 and PerformancePoint Server 2007

Summary:   The Microsoft Enterprise Project Management (EPM) Solution allows users in an enterprise environment to create, select, plan, and manage projects over their lifespan. The EPM Solution includes Microsoft Office Project Professional 2007, Project Server 2007, and Project Portfolio Server 2007. Operational systems such as those built with EPM have a point-in-time view of the world for most metrics. As the number and complexity of projects rise, the need to easily create performance management reports becomes critical. In this webcast, learn how to use the Microsoft Business Intelligence suite to augment the suite of built-in operational reports in the EPM Solution to deliver a broad range of analysis to the entire organization, including how to:
  • Create PerformancePoint key performance indicators (KPIs) targeted to project management, exception reporting, and guided analytics.
  • Implement a PerformancePoint application that you can roll out to your entire organization using Project Server.
  • Easily create PerformancePoint trend analysis reports, enabling business users to look at all KPIs over time.
  • Extend the capabilities of the Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services cubes that ship with Project Server.
