Why should I be interested in Dashboards & Reports?

Dashboards & Reporting tools are widely used across various industries to present data in a visual format, allowing the users to understand their data with ease and have specific information available with very little effort. They facilitate decision-making by providing real-time insights, enable performance monitoring by tracking key metrics, help align activities with organisational goals and enhance communication and understanding across a business by providing a common, universal view of data. 


Dashboards are widely used across businesses of all sizes today. There are many options, some of the most popular being Tableau and Power BI. They provide visual representations of data that offer overviews of key metrics, performance indicators and other important information relevant to a specific organisation. Dashboards typically consist of various visual elements such as charts, graphs, gauges, tables and other widgets that display data in an easily understandable format. They can generally be customised to suit the needs of different users and can vary in complexity, from simple summaries to highly interactive and dynamic displays meaning they are more accessible to all.

Reporting tools are software applications or platforms designed to facilitate the creation, customisation and distribution of reports. Popular reporting tools include Google Analytics & Funnel. These tools typically provide functionalities for data extraction, transformation, analysis and visualisation, allowing users to generate insights from raw data and present them in a structured and meaningful way.

Presentation -

Interactivity -

Granularity -

Audience and Purpose -
