After looking at http://visualbi.com/sap-design-studio/dsx-extensions/utilities/ I took a look at the Visual BI Chart extensions.  As a user who is not normally a developer, it is nice to note that no coding is required for these charts.

I used a BEx query as a data source.

Above is a solid gauge Visual BI component, with a BEx query attached (from SAP Solution Manager ) showing the number of tickets.  I dragged over the component, assigned the # of tickets as the binding as shown above.

Above is the semicircle donut chart.  Tool tips are automatically enabled but you can see at a glance where the high number of tickets are.

The circular counter works the same way – drag over the circular counter component, assign the data source and data select, and you are all set.

The area chart is shown above.

Above is one of my favorite charts, the stacked column chart against a BEx query showing budget, actuals and balance.  I think these type of components make it easier for the business-users to create their own dashboard applications, with no coding required.
