A well-designed dashboard provides an overview of the current status of the business. It should be very clear and easy to use, because fast interpretation is a must. The user has to be able to identify any potential problems at a glance.
The objective of a dashboard is not just to fill it with data, but rather to make data understandable. Correct visualisation by means of colour indicators, among other things, and placing data in the right business context is of great importance, and stimulates corrective behaviour.
Full Orbit has developed successful data visualisation solutions for dozens of organisations.
Our approach often starts with workshops, obtaining answers to a number of questions in order to determine the organisation’s information need, and to translate it into information models.
