Track: Data Analytics
This research proposes a framework to develop interactive dashboards and evaluates the effectiveness of using them in improving data management, data analysis, data visualization, and information sharing. A case study in an electronics manufacturing company located in the United States was conducted to implement the proposed framework with a main focus on business and financial information. The framework is comprised of four main phases; pre-assessment to assess the current situation, standardizing the format of the databases, creating interactive dashboards, and post-assessment to evaluate the suggested improvements. The proposed framework proved its effectiveness in creating standardized databases and interactive dashboards based on the results of the pre/post assessment. The assessment showed positive feedback on how the use of dashboards helps in improving the four-evaluation metrics; data management, data analysis, data visualization, and information sharing.
Data Analysis, Data Visualization, Interactive Dashboards, Information Sharing, and Data Management.
