Abstract:In this era of data explosion, many companies want to use data for insights. This study focuses on the creation of a data dashboard to utilize software usage data, originating from the case company Movella. The company aims to gain useful insights from collected software data to better understand their customers and make informed decisions. Therefore, the research centered on designing a data dashboard that uses software usage data while meeting the diverse needs of Movella's professionals. In my research, I adopted a user-centered design approach. Initially, I conducted user interviews to understand the needs, motivations, and preferences of different target roles. By analyzing the interview results, I identified the data and features to beavailable on the dashboard.. After that, I developed a low-fidelity prototype of the dashboard. This prototype was evaluated during usability testing, where it received positive feedback and suggestions for improvements. Subsequently, I implemented a Proof of Concept (PoC) for the data dashboard, exploring a viable development approach. This involved integrating software usage data into a database and connecting it to a visualization platform to create a dashboard tailored to user needs. The functional data dashboard received positive feedback during its final presentation at Movella, indicating its potential effectiveness in practical applications. Future directions will focus on real-time data updates and visualization improvements. In summary, this study lays the groundwork for developing a data dashboard that visualize software usage data.
