Dashboards and reporting
All people are different with specific needs and interests. So reporting features need to be highly flexible to make the most of it. Our dashboards allow you to visualize application data in different gadgets that can all be tailored to your very own needs.
Each user has access to their own, personalized dashboard, that can be configured to display the data that is of interest for them. They can add or remove gadgets, choose how and in what order to display them, and even add multiple instances of the same basic gadget that can display different data sets.
Dashboards are available for the following applications:
Visualizing your service openings
A basic example of a configurable Rollouts Dashboard gadget is the World map gadget. In combination with powerful filter options this visualizes service availability throughout the world and, maybe even more importantly, helps you identify areas where availability needs to be increased. A user could add three World map gadgets that each display different data, especially focused on modern technologies:
- Active LTE launches
- Currently active 5G launches
- All currently active launches
Another example that could also be useful in identifying blockers is the Current phase gadget: This displays the current phase for all active launches. When a disproportionately large number of rollouts are stuck in one phase, that gives an indication that actions might be required here.
A prime example of a key gadget for identifying issues that is interesting for Management users is the Phase performance gadget: With this gadget, you can see at one glance what your performance target is in general for a specific phase (i.e. how many days are planned for working in that phase), and how the actual phase performance measures up against that target. There can be many reasons for delays, but it’s always good to be informed about it as early as possible to take countermeasures in good time.
If you are more interested in the total number of rollouts, we have you covered as well: The Launches by service gadget displays all ongoing launches and can also be configured to show historic rollout data – for example, how many rollouts for each service were completed in specific years.
Dashboards for many modules
These were just a few examples of currently available Rollouts Dashboard gadgets: In total, eight different Dashboard gadgets that can all be configured with a multitude of options are available. On top of that, operator groups have access to even more gadgets that can measure and display the rollouts performance across different group members in your account.
Similar dashboards are of course available to monitor your network configurations in the Network Configuration Optimizer / IREG Toolbox. Just let us know if you need specific information regarding this.
