Our dashboard application, http://www.otusanalytics.com/, using Ext JS 4.1 and Rails has been getting a lot of attention in the "scorecard community" due to the nifty heat map widget we built for turning data tables into scorecards, http://www.otusanalytics.com/otusAdv.../heatmaps.html. As a result, quite a well known scorecard Guru came to us and asked us if we could build a risk scorecard widget based upon what they were doing in Excel.

First, we duplicated their Excel spreadsheet format as a data grid:

Then we used the Ext JS 4.1 grid, draw and chart components to create the risk scorecard based on the values in the data table:

It is so cool how easy it is to do really great data visualizations with Ext JS 4.1.

BTW, the Guru will be going to market (soon) with a branded version of our dashboard software that incorporates the Risk Scorecard Widget. WE will not be including it (at this time) in OTUS Analytics Dashboard Software.
