The Sumo Interactive Dashboard is super powerful, yet technically challenging project. Its major objective is to take the real time raw data and allow it to be filtered, manipulated, and visualized as it comes in.
As I worked on this project, I discovered some architectural flaws that required attention. We went back and optimized the flow of as much as possible, balancing our desire for an ideal interface with what we could accomplish given limitations in resources, such as developers and time, and considering consistency throughout the product and prioritizing other work requiring more immediate attention. This project is ongoing and many of my colleagues, front end and back end, are still working hard and sweating to improve the usability of Sumo Interactive Dashboard.
