Business dashboards are available in many shapes and sizes. Business dashboards are useful to create an overview of key performance indicators (KPIs) important for the business strategy and/or operations.
There are many flavours of dashboard frameworks and apps available, ranging in price from thousands of dollars to open-source implementations.
Apparently there are four key elements to a good dashboard:
- Simple, communicates easily
- Minimum distractions…it could cause confusion
- Supports organized business with meaning and useful data
- Applies human visual perception to visual presentation of information
