Based on Microsoft Office Excel, SAP Crystal Dashboard (Xcelsius) allows you to convert your existing spreadsheets into exciting visually interactive dashboards. Numbers in Excel are brought to life with dynamic graphs, which allow the user to customize and visualize data in real time. While spreadsheet data is static and needs to be updated from reports using cut-and-paste, dashboards automatically query databases or reports for the most current data. This book by Report Writing Services, designed as a 3 day training course, is written in a way perfect for self-study or an instructor led classroom setting. The student learns by actually building dashboards (not by reading theory) and is exposed to a comprehensive collection of dashboard components and shown a wide range of design concepts and practical spreadsheet programming techniques. Breadth of knowledge is emphasized over repetitious exercises and dashboard standards and best practices are taught throughout the course. The book consists of nine chapters written in an easy to follow step-by-step format. All the instructions are accompanied by detailed color illustrations to help create the dashboards quickly and easily. A new and increasingly challenging dashboard, which introduces and teaches new concepts, is built in each chapter. Student files provided by Information Analytics Institute include a rich set of pre-constructed and mid construction dashboards available to be previewed and examined prior to purchase. These are worked on throughout the course. The chapters are knit together by an entertaining story about Candy Cane Enterprises and how Annie Heartland and Abel Goodman struggle to overcome corporate politics to build dashboards that reveal the truth about the company's finances, sales, production, client relations and human resources. While learning to build dashboards the student is carried on a journey from the skyscrapers of New York to the islands of the South Pacific and the hills of Montana. Complete with cartoon images, intrigue and a little romance, the story provides context and meaning to the tasks the student must perform. Learning was never so entertaining.
