Instant KPI: From Data to Dashboard in Record Time
Source: SAS Institute
Moving from data to dashboard in a single program, this paper shows how Base SAS and SAS/STAT software can be used with the power of PROC GKPI to go from raw data to meaningful statistical summaries of benchmarked performance. Benchmarking is a common process by which organizations measure performance against group norms, past performance, or expected performance. For example, a school might compare its graduation rate against its school district's rate, a hospital might compare care for an individual patient with patients with similar medical histories, or a retail store might compare itself to other franchises. Using PROC MEANS, PROC UNIVARIATE, and other summaries, one can calculate statistical boundaries on the fly, renorming data using group distributions, and publishing the results to the dashboard.
