Dashboards Design and Practice using SSRS
Presenter: Jen Stirrup
How is it possible to create dashboards that are in line with data visualisation principles? Using SSRS, dashboard design, function and creation will be explored in this session. In order to underline the data 'stories' of the overall message, we will look at ways of designing the internal dashboard elements that are in line with current data visualisation practices, whilst maintaining overall consistency between the dashboard elements.
The dashboard design theory is translated into practical demonstrations using SQL Server Reporting Services 2008 R2.
