You trust dashboards every day of your life. They tell you how fast you’re going, how many miles to empty, and so much more. Designed to provide the information you need to know when you need it and at a place most convenient for you, dashboards are necessary tools designed to make your life easier. Much like those in your car, business dashboards serve a similar purpose—offering quick information when you need it most.
Over the years, executive dashboards have evolved, connecting more data sources, delivering more ways to slice and dice information, and giving decision makers more visibility into key performance indicators and more. But how are these dashboards created and how can the right tool make it easy to start seeing insights today? We’re excited to announce a new webcast scheduled for September 15 that discusses just that.
Dashboards—Powered by Business Intelligence, Empowering Users
Dashboards can deliver increased visibility, help you make ongoing improvements to your business, save time in decision making, and give you a deeper understanding of your business, but without a business intelligence tool to connect all the data and provide users with the information they need, dashboards would simply be labeled data visualization tools.
Business intelligence goes further. Business Intelligence (BI) software is the information a business collects about itself. This can include a very broad swath of data, which is why businesses often need business intelligence software. These programs let companies keep all their BI data in one place so that it is easier to access and analyze.
In simpler terms, business intelligence software connects data from a variety of sources and allows for easy analysis. Though the benefits of the solution are obvious—knowledge is power—many companies think that such solutions are hard to implement, reserved only for the largest of entities, or complicated to use.
Imagine—rather than dealing with emails upon emails to get a report, you have the right information when you log in. Rather than dealing with tables, you get automatic charts, and rather than waiting days, the information is shown in real time. This is where business intelligence delivers for your company, putting users in control and doing so with little coding knowledge.
Managing Large Swaths of Data
The one thing about business intelligence that helps most is the sheer amount of data such a solution can handle. With the massive amounts of data generated by your organization, making sense of that data and sharing it with decision-makers can be a challenge.
Power BI makes this easy. Power BI is not just a visualization tool, it is a powerful analytical engine that can produce amazing insights. Learn how to develop compelling dashboards within Power BI using a range of analytical and visualization techniques.
