I'm starting a new theme in 2014 which is to have guest visuals on this site. This is partly because I am lazy (read: 100% because I am lazy). For a modest fee of exactly zero dollars and zero cents, you too can rent this space. Act soon to get in on this hot, hot visual action! This week we have a great dashboard from Brian Deely, one of the expert Product Consultants at Tableau Software.
At first glance you might think, "hey this viz is kind of simple. Where's the crazy Alan Smithee ridiculousness that I am used to seeing?". But here's the thing: I LOVE THIS VIZ. It's so simple. There's an elegance to it. It was so easy to create - it literally took Brian all of 2 minutes to build this. The goal of the viz is crystal clear. He left almost all of the default formatting untouched (except for the black. Nice one, Brian. I love black)
Those of us who are viz nerds - the vizarati of the BI world so to speak - get all worked up over advanced features and solutions. We sometimes forget what the whole point is: Fast. Easy. Fun.
With that, I give you Brian's exploit dashboard:
