What is the Purpose of a Dashboard?

The whole point of the web-based dashboard is that it lets you visualize the Key Performance Indicators and other strategic data for your organization at a glance. It is the dashboard tool that presents management with the information for the practical end of the organization. Key Performance Indicators are quantifiable measurements, agreed to beforehand, that reflect the critical success factors of an organization. The web dashboard allows the user to view KPIs and other critical data without delving into the semantics of the source system that manages the detailed data.
