Techopedia Explains Business Intelligence Dashboard

A component of every BI software solution, a BI dashboard works like a standard application dashboard that gathers two or more key performance indicators (KPI) and statistics into a visual interface. When a user login into the BI software, the first visible page/interface/element is the BI dashboard. The type and amount of displayed data vary according to the BI software’s available capabilities and customization.

However, a BI dashboard is designed to allow users to receive instant visualization of their preferred BI-specific operations, eliminating requirements for manually executed queries or processes.

Moreover, a BI dashboard’s appearance and interface may be customized for desktop, mobile or Web/cloud users.
