					Yellowfin to Host Business Intelligence Dashboard Best Practice Event

Global Business Intelligence (BI) software vendor, Yellowfin, will host a series of dashboard best
practice Webinars throughout Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 September.

Melbourne, Australia, September 14, 2012 -- Global Business Intelligence (BI) software vendor,
Yellowfin, will host a series of dashboard best practice Webinars (
http://www.yellowfinbi.com/YFCommunityNews-Webinar-Event-BI-Dashboards-Best-Practices-118397 )
throughout Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19 September.

The BI Dashboard Best Practices Webinar series will explore:
* Why dashboards were rated as the number one strategic BI technology in Dresner Advisory Services
2012 Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence Market Study
* Why data visualization expert, Stephen Few, has declared that the majority of today’s BI dashboards fail
* How to deliver best practice dashboards
* Why dashboards deliver high ROI

Few defines BI dashboards ( http://www.yellowfinbi.com/YFWebsite-Dashboards-KPI-24431 ) as: “a
visual display of the most important information needed to achieve one or more objectives consolidated
and arranged on a single screen so the information can be monitored at a glance.”

“Dashboards are the most basic, most fundamental, way of delivering the information derived from a BI
implementation,” said Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie. “In fact, the latest Wisdom of Crowds BI Market Study
found that dashboards were rated as the most important strategic BI technology by those with, or looking
to deploy, BI.”

But, despite the demand, many organizations are not able to deliver intuitive and insightful dashboards.

“Most dashboards fail,” said Few. “The main problem that plagues dashboards today is that they say too
little and what they do say they don’t say very well. In other words, they are not very informative. When
designed properly, a dashboard provides an overview of what’s going on, clearly and rapidly.”

Rabie said Webinar participants would learn how to:
* Design dashboards that provide instant insight
* Create dashboards that are relevant to job function, relate to business strategy and prompt accurate,
timely action
* Select appropriate visualizations that best communicate the message that the chosen KPI is intended to
convey

“One of the best ways to underpin the success of anyway BI project is to ensure that you supply users
with easy-to-understand, relevant and timely information – via best practice dashboards,” said Rabie.

There are three concise forty minute Webinars scheduled throughout Tuesday 18 and Wednesday 19
September.

Following the Webinar, attendees will receive a copy of the presentation slides and a recording for
on-demand viewing.
