MARINA DEL REY, Calif.: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers today released the first version of a new 'Dashboard' that will offer measurements of ICANN's performance in numerous areas across the organization.
"At this stage the ‘Dashboard’ has reports from Finance, IANA, and IETF request queue. We are looking for community feedback on this tool and will expand the reports available over time," said Dr Paul Twomey, ICANN's President and CEO.
The 'Dashboard' is the result of a substantial effort within ICANN to define measurable results, establish repeatable processes for collecting data, and to select and install software.
"This is about continuous improvement, transparency, and accountability to our community," Dr Twomey added.
Members of the public are invited to test drive the 'Dashboard' at http://www.icann.org/idashboard/public/.
ICANN is responsible for the global coordination of the Internet's system of unique identifiers like domain names (like .org, .museum and country codes like .uk) and the addresses used in a variety of Internet protocols that help computers reach each other over the Internet. Careful management of these resources is vital to the Internet's operation, so ICANN's global stakeholders meet regularly to develop policies that ensure the Internet's ongoing security and stability. ICANN is an internationally organized, public benefit non-profit company. For more information please visit: www.icann.org.
