Dr. Ginny Miori is piloting a project through ATDL, using the ipad to present mobile dashboards in her six sigma class. Dashboards are a big topic area within the Decision & System Sciences field because of the immense contribution they make to management communications. Ginny attaches the ipad to the projector and works with students in generating appropriate dashboards. She states that, “It would be even better if they all had mobile devices, but it’s still an important part of the curriculum because it does show the current state of the field.”
Ginny is using IBM Cognos for this assignment. The software is available for students to download onto their laptops because of our academic partnership with IBM. This exposure to Cognos is also valuable to students, as it is a software commonly used in the industry.
