Bocada Introduces Flexibility to Create Custom Dashboards Natively and in 3rd Party BI Platforms

As aggregated views of your most important KPIs, dashboards often serve as a primary launchpad for deeper reporting workflows.  

A single pane of glass dashboard like Bocada’s can offer even more value, bringing key reports from multiple data sources into a single unified reporting view.  

Today, we’re pleased to highlight several new custom dashboarding capabilities for Bocada customers. 


Bocada’s Enhanced Dashboard (NEW)

Bocada’s new Enhanced Dashboard gives Bocada users the power and flexibility to create multiple custom dashboards natively within Bocada. Users can load any combination of supported Bocada reports onto enhanced dashboards as reporting widgets and configure them to their liking.  

  • Add multiple Bocada reports to a dashboard via widgets 
  • Customize dashboard layouts with drag-and-drop editing tool 
  • Save multiple dashboards for different workflows, perspectives, and more 

Users can get their first look at Enhanced Dashboard functionality in this month’s product release (23.2.07). Further enhancements and support for more Bocada reports will follow in subsequent product releases.

External Dashboards: Power BI, Tableau & Splunk 

For organizations with a mandate and/or preference to consolidate reporting onto 3rd party BI/data visualization platforms such as Power BI, Tableau, or Splunk, Bocada has got you covered.  

Organizations using Bocada version 22.3.12 or later can access and use Bocada’s convenient reporting templates to set up dashboards in these three popular platforms. The templates are available for download from the Bocada Report Library.
