    Technology Definition of the Week:

    Single Pane of Glass  

     A management console that integrates data from multiple sources into a unified display. The glass, in this case, is a computer monitor or mobile device screen.

    An effective single pane of glass view serves as a starting point from which a corporate executive or system adiminstrator can get a sense of the big picture. For example, a data center software product that offers a single pane of glass might obtain data from building facility systems and integrate that information with data from information technology (IT) systems. The purpose of a unified display is to present operational data in a way that's easier to read and interpret. The phrase single pane of glass is often used as a synonym for dashboard.
