Course Overview
Hi, everybody. My name is Tim Boles, and welcome to my course, Build Your First Dashboard with iDashboards. I'm a senior manager at Hitachi Vantara, and I've been working with data and databases for over 20 years. There is a well‑known saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. iDashboards gives us the ability to take thousands of data points and provide a picture to the viewer that lets the data tell the story. In this course, you will learn the basic architecture of iDashboards and its basic capabilities. You'll create interactive charts that allows the user to explore data through filtering and cross highlighting, and you'll learn the guiding factors on choosing the right visualization for your first dashboard. By the end of this course, you'll have a firm base understanding on the basic utilization of iDashboards to create a set of visualizations from an Excel workbook. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with basic math terminology like the X and Y‑axis. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into dashboard creation with courses on Effective Reporting with Power BI, Build Your First Dashboard of Power BI, and Business Dashboard Fundamentals. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn iDashboards with the Build Your First Dashboard with iDashboards course at Pluralsight.
