Dashboard and Scorecard are the jargon used for special types of graphical repor ts.

Dashboard is a graphical report presenting the key metrics in a single view givi ng out the complete and consolidated information at the highest level. Usually D ashboard is consumed by top level management who wish to see single shot view of business. Scorecard is more like report card of key of a specific business unit. Moreover its gress where users can link critical goals o that they can track and take corrective metrics defined to access performance an interactive way of tracking the pro with subject and actions to be taken s action to achieve successful results.

Document is a MicroStrategy object used for producing consolidated report which in turn contain other multiple report and it is also used for developing dashboa rds. 2.i am looking for some samples for What-if scenario kind of dashboards? Could a nyone suggest or point me in the right direction? Bank regulator change key capital requirement every quarter based on that liquid ity get created or sucked from capital market.

Complicated Reports Kept Complicated September 8th, 2009 Jeremy Leave a comment Go to comments Having recently upgraded to MicroStrategy 9.0, I ve been forced to reanalyze a lot of reports that just worked prompted of course by angry end users whose report gene ration moved from 20 seconds to Error Time Out at ten minutes. Why didn t I catch this in development? Well, when I did all of my testing, as a f ull access desktop user, I don t have any SQL Security and that changes everything. As I ve said before, I m a heavy user of consolidations (see here), add when you add these to multiple metrics (all full outer joins), multiple filters, etc sometimes , things can go wrong, especially when you have SQL Global Optimization with Mic roStrategy 9.0. Consolidations are fickle things and the more complicated that you make them, the more that can go wrong. First step is to check your SQL, and thanks to MicroStrategy Technical support ( big thanks!), I was able to learn something new if you see the metric name GODWFLA Gc_1, then you pretty much know that your SQL optimization engine is kicking in; you can change it. In your VLDB Settings, check Query Optimizations in my specific instance, I had to change the Global settings (see pic) to force the SQL to work properly, line by line. The more it tried to fix the SQL, the more it broke it. Hey, it s not perfe ct but it gives you as the ability to tweak it yourself.

conditional formatting testing or threshold testing 1. T his means that even we have a report filter to display data only for 2 cities an d 1 city of state1 and state2 this absolute setting will override this report fi lter in way that the report shows complete data for the two states to which the cities in the filter belong. Few of them are like: 1) Report layout (Attributes/Metrics positions) 2) Naming conventions 3) Totals & Grand Totals 4) Validate the Sql query 5) Drilling options . Ignore d. Absolute filtering: If we specify absolute filtering in the level metric defi nition than the report will show data for all the cities of state1 and state2. 5. How are Absolute and Standard Filters used in different scenarios? How do they differ from one another? Absolute and Standard Filters are used in Level Metrics (metrics which calculate at the specified attribute level rather than the default report level). Performance Testing. Absolute b. 3. Standard filtering: In case of standard filtering the report filter interacts in the usual way with the level metric and shows data only for the elements spe cified in the report filter. While defining the level metric the target attribute at which the metric should calculate is specified along with filtering and grouping options.Simple & Advanced 6) Prompts If any 7) Prompt ordering Prompt Defaults (If any) 8) Metric Calculations 9) Drill Maps (Inc.Interview questions Testing MicroStrategy Reports Name the different types of testing that can be done on MicroStrategy Reports? Depending of the type of report there can be numbers of areas it can be tested. None Scenario: Consider a report with filter on 2 cities of a state1 and 1 city of an other state2 and showing revenue for the states using a level metric. a. The filtering option is a way of specifying how the level metric interacts with the report filter. This filtering option is classified into 4 types: a. Thus the r eport will only show data for the 2 cities of state1 and for the 1 city of state 2 but at the state level rather than city level as we are using a level metric h ere. Report formatting testing against requirement. Templates) 10) Security filters (If any) 11) Export/Print functionality 12) Formatting Properties like alignment scroll bar decimal places etc Along with the above mentioned testings you can also have a.
