MicroStrategy Developed an Information Dashboard

Originally published April 28, 2009

MicroStrategy Incorporated, a worldwide provider of business intelligence (BI) software, recently announced that it has developed an information dashboard that can help citizens track American Recovery and Reinvestment Act expenditures. MicroStrategy submitted its dashboard to Recovery.gov as a tool that government agencies can also utilize to provide greater transparency into their use of the recovery funds.

This week, the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board and the Office of Management and Budget is hosting a national online dialogue to engage leading information technology vendors, thinkers, and consumers in finding approaches to ensure that all citizens can monitor the expenditure and use of recovery funds. Participants will recommend, discuss, and vote on the best ideas, tools, and approaches at Recovery.gov.

Government agencies receiving Recovery Act funds will be charged with providing regular updates to government officials, Congress, and the public on how much money is being spent and on what programs. MicroStrategy created this dashboard as an example of how agencies can streamline their own reporting of this information.

MicroStrategy’s dynamic dashboards are used by businesses and government agencies to augment data comprehension and optimize decisionmaking. Business intelligence dashboards display a tremendous amount of information in an easytouse and compelling manner. MicroStrategy offers an extensive library of data visualization tools and selector controls to further enhance data exploration.

“Government agencies will be faced with developing an efficient way for reporting their use of recovery funds in a clear, accurate, and timely manner,” said Sanju Bansal, MicroStrategy’s COO. “Information dashboards are ideal for this initiative, providing the ability to display large volumes of information in an intuitive, graphical format that will allow citizens to analyze and evaluate how their tax dollars are being spent.”
