Dashboards are becoming one of the most valuable tools for organizations to gain visibility into how they are performing as well as help develop ways for increasing overall efficiencies. Whether as part of a larger Business Intelligence (BI) solution or as a standalone solution, organizations are looking at dashboards to help solve their business problems.
