Title: Make it easy to make analyses look good Support for information dashboard design
Authors: Dhareshwar, Anupama
Abstract: Data analysts are data driven while creating analyses in data analysis tools. Compiling an information dashboard with compelling analysis requires strong knowledge of dashboard design guidelines and visual design guidelines. Analysts who lack relevant design knowledge and experience, find it a difficult task to create good looking dashboards. Hence there is a need for support which helps to automatically apply dashboard design guidelines and visual design guidelines to create good looking dashboards. This thesis was conducted with a data analytics company who have developed a data analytics tool. Through literature study and expert interviews essential requirements for designing a good looking dashboard were identified. Following this, a design workshop was conducted to identify opportunities for support to create good looking dashboards. An ideation session after the workshop helped to identify that a combination of styling templates and layout permutations could help to provide the necessary support to create compelling analysis. A design regarding this concept was prototyped and evaluated through user testing. The concept and recommendations are presented to describe the support required to create good looking dashboards.
