“The greatest value of a picture is when it forces us to notice what we never expected to see.”
– John W. Tukey, Inventor of the Box Plot and Fast Fourier Transformation algorithm
Ever-increasing volumes of information are captured and stored across myriad systems; in hundreds of formats. This information is vital for a business; but providing a single source of truth is difficult.
Dashboards provide a single view of an organisation. Insights are accessible, on demand to decision makers, to better improve their actions and processes.
A dashboard is a page which provides a single view of a component or complete business. With interactive visualisations that link to each other, users are able to uncover behaviours and insights in their data. A dashboard is a simple-to-consume format for information extraction; can be shareable and modular; allowing for functionality and advanced analytics to be added as the business need requires.
Dashboards can be utilised by day-to-day managers, to provide visibility over people, projects or reportable measures. Dashboards also provide a simple-to-consume format for executive level decision makers – providing an interactive overview of their business, in real time, on any device, anywhere in the world.
