Visualizing business performance is the realm of Business Intelligence (BI). Everyone's looking for deeper insights into their organization's key performance indicators (KPIs). Dashboards are often the term used when executives and others accountable for business results describe what they're looking for.
Tableau, Cognos and/or Microsoft SSRS are some of the tools that we use to bring BI visions to life quickly.
The foundations of Business Intelligence can give way to a deeper understanding of the factors driving your business. In many cases a high level Dashboard will provide ability to drill-through to additional detail and data mining related to the business factors yielding the overall results.
Adding filters and additional visualization will provide insight that can be the key to new innovation, efficiencies and productivity.
