Business Intelligence Dashboards
What is a business dashboard?
A business dashboard is a visual analytics tool that combines wide-reaching data sources to reveal the health of your business, project, or process. It can be customized to display metrics, KPIs, and charts in whatever way makes sense to you and your organization.

An informative analytics dashboard is a key component of modern business intelligence. If you’re not getting what you need from your dashboard, it’s probably due to poor design.
Why is dashboard design important?
Poorly designed dashboards result in negative user experience, low user adoption, and insufficient stakeholder buy-in.
