Customizable Dashboard Console

  There are examples of dashboards in the industry today. However, these are somewhat rigid in nature. In a best case, current dashboards are delivered as portal-like solutions. There is no flexibility for sizing the visible dashboard components, i.e., tailoring the console that is the container for dashboard widgets.

A dashboard console constuctor is provided. A user is provided with the features to select desired dashboard widgets to display. In addition, a user is provided with features that allow a user to place selected dashboard widgets onto the console as well as managing their layout and dimensions. Layout features include scaling widgets and resulting display data to smaller or larger sizes. In another example, the present invention could be used for web pages that are not dashboard-oriented to provide flexibility in selecting, sizing, and placing the data/widgets where desired.
