What is a Dashboard?

Dashboards are used in various contexts, from business management and data analysis to monitoring and reporting.

  2. Real-time data: In many cases, dashboards can display real-time data, meaning the information is continually updated to reflect current status or trends.

  3. Customization: Users can often customize dashboards to their specific needs by adding or removing widgets, charts, or modules.

  6. Interactivity: Many modern dashboards offer interactive features, such as the ability to navigate through different data slices, view details, or perform certain actions directly from the dashboard.

  7. Targeted Applications: There are specialized dashboards for different use cases such as: B. Business intelligence dashboards, financial dashboards, marketing dashboards, IT monitoring dashboards and more.
