Getting the Complete Picture With Attivio’s Active Dashboards
by Paula J. Hane
There are a few technologies for which I'm particularly grateful as an online information professional: embedded links, faceted search, and dashboards. All of them are designed to make a researcher's life easier, getting to the right information faster and easier. None of these are new tools, but I want to reflect on the growing importance of dashboards as a user interface in the information management field today. A dashboard pulls information from diverse sources and presents it in an interface designed to be easy to read, similar to an automobile's dashboard. The key difference is that users can interact with the information. The interactive nature of a dashboard lets a user move quickly from a summary view to drill down to various levels of detail and usually in easy-to-comprehend visuals and graphics. And that is just what Attivio offers with its Active Dashboard but with another key difference. The system is indeed "active." You don't have to search for information—the system pushes it to you. And, as you click on a piece of information in a window, other windows on the dashboard are automatically updated.
