Analytics Dashboard is built-in functionality of some software intended for collecting, monitoring, analyzing and measuring performance data regarding certain processes, tasks, objectives, decisions, etc. It provides an at-a-glance performance report that visually displays performance stats obtained from using math algorithms and calculations.
For example, a task analytics dashboard provides a visual report about the progress of selected tasks. It uses the tasks’ attributes in math formulas to determine whether the tasks remain effective in terms of time, labor, money and other inputs, which are assumed to be converted into desired outputs. The dashboard will show how the tasks are performed at any given point in time and whether they provide desired outputs.
All kinds of analytics dashboard serve one and the same purpose, which is to provide customizable performance reports for further analysis and decision making. Managers use such reports to review and study performance data about certain objects (tasks, projects, goals, supplies, etc.) in order to make a weighted decision that improves current performance and minimizes problem occurrence in the future.
