A performance monitoring and management system that consists of interactive visualizations of key business metrics over time.
Reports and dashboards present historical views of business activity and are essential for running a business. But BI teams can also mine data to deliver proactive—or predictive—views of the business. These views help companies anticipate customer needs, optimize business processes, and reduce risk and costs by forecasting activities and events.
Dashboards are the perfect interface for managing a business: they blend both strategic and operational perspectives in a single, compact display… dashboards show business users how their performance compares to plan and their peers across key indicators of success aligned with corporate goals. This is a critical strategic activity: every company needs to distill its strategy into key performance indicators (KPIs) tailored to every individual in the organization.
