At the beginning of this document it was stated that a digital dashboard is a tool that allows a user to quickly monitor and analyze the performance of an organization or group. To this end, the best practices (Target User, Correctly Identifying KPIs, Context, Layout and Clarity, etc) have been formulated and written. Each practice has been carefully devised and clarified over the years to ensure that a dashboard following the practices will result in far more clarity than a dashboard that does not follow the practices. Readers of the best practices often think them to be obvious, but a quick look around at the numerous dashboards available on the internet shows that very few follow any significant number of the outlined practices, and almost none follow all of them.

The products offered by Dundas Software are all used for data visualization and fall naturally within the realm of digital dashboards. The .NET products, Dundas Chart, Dundas Gauge and Dundas Map are all designed to be flexible and end-user friendly, as well as easy to data-bind in order to make building a dashboard easy for a developer. Dundas Software also offers the same products for Reporting Services, and in addition, Dundas Calendar, as well as currently investing in Share Point and Windows Presentation Foundation for future products. With the wide array of platform support and data visualization tools available from Dundas Software, any dashboard can be built quickly and easily using a product that fits the requirements of the user. These products, combined with the best practices outlined in this document result in an efficient and useful dashboard every time.
