BI Dashboard Services
A data visualization tool which depicts the latest status of metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) for a business organization is a business Intelligence dashboard. While customized dashboards would display particular objectives and display metrics targeted only for a single point of view, dashboards in general would lay out numbers, metrics and sometimes performance scorecards on a single screen.
The key advantages of BI Dashboard that Locus IT brings to you:
Gaining an instant insight into performances at the individual, departmental and enterprise level.
Business users would have access to key information which is instrumental in improving organizational process and performance.
It produces actionable content contributing to prompt and reliable business decisions
FEATURES OF BI DASHBOARD:
Provides a customizable interface with the ability to pull real time data from multiple resources
It can be created through other business applications such as Excel
Understanding that the performance scorecard and business Intelligence dashboard are not synonymous
BI dashboard capabilities allow any user to access, interact and personalize content in a way that supports the uniqueness of decisions.
An elaboration of the capabilities of the BI dashboard would be the following:
(It permits you to assemble and personalize dashboard views, leverage information from all time horizons, make dashboards portable to support decisions, analyze and share views, assemble and format, modify and arrange layout and add colors, interact and analyze share and collaborate.)
Users can promptly move from insight to action.
Dashboards are highly visual representations of enterprise performance that integrate a variety of different data elements into a single graphical display. They are either Cross Functional or domain specific but both are designed to deliver maximum visual impact in a format optimized for quick absorption.
The enterprise data can be leveraged to reach all individuals across the enterprise with powerful visual displays.
