Blue Cypress Consulting is supporting Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) in implementing SPU’s Capacity Management Operations and Maintenance (CMOM) program. As part of this program, Blue Cypress is developing programmatic performance metrics and a dashboarding mechanism to track and report on key performance measurements necessary to manage and track the successful implementation of the program and to identify when course corrections are necessary.
Performance reporting is only beneficial if the data and visualizations can be consumed by the appropriate audience and for this it is important to choose the appropriate dashboarding mechanism. Now more than ever there are a variety of choices and ultimately SPU selected Tableau as its reporting framework of choice. A key step in this project is to build the chosen reports within the Tableau software to then consume live data from sources including ArcGIS, Maximo, GraniteNet, and InfoAsset.
