To measure the success of operations activities, the city of Corpus Christi, Texas, contracted with technology and business-management consultant EMA Inc. to incorporate the “balanced scorecard” strategy into a Web-based dashboard that pulls performance data from the city's core business systems and data repositories, such as IBM's Maximo asset management system, and provide derived performance metrics. Other IBM technologies that support the dashboard include the DB2-400 database and AS400 server, which serve as the platform for the city's utility billing system and provide raw data for several dashboard metrics. Goals are color-coded by perspective: Customer is blue, financial is green, process is yellow, and sustainability is orange.
