For my Enterprise software solution (so open source is not so good) I want to implement a flexible dashboard which is component base. So I can keep changing it by adding new components, withouth having to wait for the next version.

my gold standard is pageflakes

any suggestions?

ASP.NET Web Parts coupled with ASP.NET Ajax will enable you to create your own configurable Pageflakes-like site.

You should check into Drop things. It's created by the creater of pageflakes and used in a book he wrote on how to do it.

Have a look at Ext JS. It's a javascript framework that can very easily do a dashboard. There is a commercial license as well as a GPL one.

Although it is open source, that's not really what your problem is, the commercial license is fine for building commercial software.

You can try Dynamic Dashboards for Asp.Net. It has an open source widget library, browser & database independent.
