Cognos 10 Dashboards

For those of you on Cognos 10, building a dashboard is a difficult and time consuming process.  You need to build widgets through Report Studio then place them in Workspace.  You have to worry about updates and filters, ensuring every change you make flows through.  Frankly, not a very user friendly process that has probably led you to ask yourself, how do I level up dashboards with Cognos Analytics?  As you can see by the below image, the Cognos 10 dashboard is clunky, not every nice to look at and just looks old.
