Dashboard Data is a collection of information presented in various forms (graph, numbers, symbols) on a software dashboard. It aims to provide as much information about a certain object as possible for further analysis and decision making.
Dashboard data is primarily used to support strategic initiatives, tactical decision-making and operational effectiveness. It tends to help organizations improve alignment with business goals and objectives through monitoring and analysis of critical information about processes, activities, projects.
Dashboard data creates a visual display of the most decision-critical information needed to achieve specific objectives. It is provided on a single computer screen so users can monitor it at a glance. For instance, sales dashboard includes specific data about orders, customers, payments, deliveries, commissions, issues, etc. All this information is visualized via graphs, spreadsheets and text, so salespeople can take a first look at this data to get a good understanding of the current situation with sales activities.
