New Dashboard Connections for Digital Signage Software

SharePoint Skykit Beam Dashboard Connection The number of Skykit Dashboard Connections is expanding regularly. We add new connections every few weeks to ensure that you are able to connect your favorite data visualization software directly to Beam, our digital signage CMS. New to the library this month are:

  • SharePoint with Okta login
  • LumApps with both direct and Google login
  • Additional internal dashboard connections*

You might be wondering what we mean by “internal dashboard connections”.

Well, we recognize that many organizations have proprietary and custom data visualization tools. That’s why our team works directly with our customers to identify which data is important to display on digital signage and to build the capabilities to connect those dashboards to Beam.
