IBCS® Certified Consultant
Holger Gerhards has successfully completed the IBCS® certification for successful design of reports and presentations at the HICHERT+FAISST IBCS® Institute in July 2016.
The work samples were created with the IBCS®-certified software and sample data of a real estate company dashboard.
Management dashboard This example shows the main page for the management. Each portfolio is assigned a color, which is integrated into the title concept. The top line of the dashboard shows the vacancy rate as an integrated differential. The lower lines show the rental income compared to the previous year. The lowest visualization shows the total revenue as an overlay. In the lines above the corresponding absolute and relative deviations are shown.
Detailed analysis: single account Here a selected account of the income statement is listed by objects at the portfolio level. Using the dynamic PowerPoint integration of gIV for IBM Cognos2.0, the evaluation was taken into PowerPoint where outliers were highlighted.
Treemap tenant analysis This interactive treemap shows the rental structure of a single object. The size of the rectangles symbolizes the rental income, therefore shows how important the tenant is. The coloring displays the remaining term of the lease: The darker an area, the shorter the time to maturity. By clicking on an area other key figures for the lease appear on the right side.
