Dashboards


Dashboards are an advanced visualisation tool to help business users know how well their business units are performing by being able to better recognise trends and patterns in large amounts of data.

Dashboards represent of a collection of KPI's, each KPI being calculated from underlying data.

The difference between dashboards and scorecards, is that scorecards incorporate methodology around the KPI's, such as Balanced Scorecard used for corporate performance.

Dashboards can be very simple technically, or be highly interactive, with tight integration to OLAP data mining tools.

The most basic dashboards display static graphical representations of performance, whilst more advanced dashboards, known as dynamic dashboards are fully interactive, allowing drill down analysis.
