A manager can now customize his dashboard(s) with SQALE widgets such as the SQALE Kiviat, the SQALE Sunburst, the SQALE pyramid... and also remove technical widgets that are not useful to him. Since Sonar 2.4, it was already possible to fully customize the project dashboard(s) according to the user profile (developer, manager, architect, ...) but very few widgets were available to create a real governance dashboard.
