9:00 AM - 10:15 AM
          Presentation:  Dashboards in XPages

        Presenter:  Wil How, Technical Specialist, PSC Group, LLC.

Data is often a shapeless, formless blob which need considerable analysis to understand. Dashboards, on the other hand, reduce this analysis to a glance. While there are many dashboard libraries, which one is best suited for XPages? In this session we will compare 2 popular Javascript charting libraries and see how easy it is to produce usable dashboards in XPages. We will compare the strengths and weaknesses of each library and end the session with a database of working examples.
10:15 AM - 10:30 AM
