We are a technology organization supporting a line of businesses.
We are currently managing a large budget with a portfolio of over 100 applications and hundreds of projects that impact these applications (some projects affect a single application and some affect multiple applications). We are tracking lots of detail and high level information including:
- List of all application with buy/sell/hold, future end state, etc.
- list of all projects with RAG status, risks, dependencies, etc and change history around status (active, pipeline, etc), resourcing, etc.
So we have lots of data, but I am trying to figure out how we can use this data to help people understand what is really going on and to help people (both technology management and our business management) make strategic decisions.
What is the right "dashboard view" (or views) that are useful for management to look at? Are there standard reports or metrics / ratios, etc that should be included?
I see a lot of articles on this, but I can't find concrete specific on what people think are the key views to help drive a strategy.
As stated here, I am trying to figure out the best way to show how we are doing against our strategy and to help drive strategic decision making. Any suggestions?
