Serena Dashboard is built from the ground up to aggregate and report on the most meaningful project and status level data from the Serena Orchestrated ALM solutions, including Serena Release Manager, Serena Development Manager, and Serena Requirements Manager. Serena Dashboard is powered by IBI WebFOCUS, a rich report building and generation system that can consume and display relevant data from any enterprise data source. WebFOCUS uses synonym files to represent imported data in a series of tables.

Serena Dashboard uses these synonyms to import data from the key Serena systems, including Serena Business Manager and Serena Dimensions CM. The data is then available from these synonyms and their tables to the metrics that will make use of the data.
