Widgets Catalog

Generating new dashboards has never been easier!



Overview

  • One of the most common monetization strategies for OEMs is to allow Self Serving Analytics by providing clients with the ability to build their own custom dashboards.

  • The main challenge is that the clients usually are not familiar with Data Modeling concepts, Facts, Dimensions, Formulas and generally speaking they come from the business side and don’t have a clue about BI.

  • The Widgets Catalog is an amazing tool that allows designers to build dashboards using a set of predefined widgets that match a specific analytical use case thus eliminating the need to know what’s “under the hood” of the data model and other technical topics.

  • The predefined widgets are simply "usual" widgets but they are bundled with predefined formulas and design settings so they can be used “As Is” directly within dashboards.
