Alphablox Corp. and EnFORM have developed and delivered a customized analytic executive dashboard for Compaq Computer Corp. The application enables Compaq executives to monitor global operational performance across business functions with Web-based access to business performance measures. The dashboard was designed to aid in the decision-making process and improve response time to operational issues. The dashboard solution, which is based on Alphablox’s Web component-based analytic infrastructure software, was designed and implemented by EnFORM.

With the dashboard, Compaq executives are currently able to review human resource metrics, financial metrics against revenue, planned versus real performance within different departments and measure inventory levels. The application architecture combines custom business logic and metrics, historical trend data, current transactional data and operational snapshots of finance, human resources, supply chain and customer satisfaction ratings. To provide this comprehensive viewpoint, Compaq's internal implementation leverages multiple data sources including an OLAP data warehouse, a transactional ERP system and various external news feeds.

“This tool assists us in improving day-to-day operations by providing upper- level management visibility into the multiple aspects of our organization,” says Ed Pennington, Compaq vice president of corporate administrative solutions.
