Pivot Dashboard is a data summarization tool available in a kind of analytics software to collect, sort out and summarize performance data into a layout or spreadsheet. Such a dashboard provides view customization functionality to allow users to re-organize and summarize selected columns and rows in the spreadsheet to obtain a desired report on performance.
The greatest benefit of using pivot dashboards in performance measurement is that users are enabled to transform performance data into a customized report for further analysis from different perspectives. Such a report can be created and then re-organized many times as long as the data displays a desired performance layout.
Pivot dashboard is especially useful with measuring large amounts of performance data. For instance, a sales manager needs to view a monthly sales report for a large number of merchandise items. It would be very time-consuming for the manager to look through pages and pages of sales-related figures to find necessary information. But with use of pivot dashboard, the manager could quickly re-organize sales data and create a summary report for each item sold for the month.
