That is why many companies are adopting data analytics and visualization strategies to implement simple, easy-to-comprehend enterprise-level monitoring to stay ahead of the competition.

Operations drive an enterprise’s economy. For this reason, monitoring your business operations is a critical part of the business lifecycle.

FusionCharts is one of the few charting tools that allow you to easily create beautiful and insightful data visualizations with ease and precision. With FusionCharts, you can quickly create business operations dashboards and keep track of important metrics such as target reach, monthly and annual revenues, and investment monitoring.

Here are some of the key features of an effective business operations monitoring dashboard.

How can I track my target reach metrics in my business operations monitoring dashboard?

Your target reach metrics are valuable information that you can track on your operations monitoring dashboard. Monitoring your profit, average order size, customer satisfaction rate, and other similar kinds of metrics will help keep your business operations on track.

To help you integrate the target reach monitoring module in your dashboard, FusionCharts has a full suite of Bootstrap-based libraries and also support for JavaScript.

Here is how you make it happen.

JavaScript

var i, chart;
/**
* "companyMonitorData" should be defined in your data.js.
* Loop over companyMonitorData.targets for Target Reach section of
* Company Monitor to create hbullet type chart for each section.
*/
for (i = 0; i < companyMonitorData.targets.length; i++) {
    chart = companyMonitorData.targets[i];
    // The type of chart to render
    chart.type = "hbullet";
    chart.width = "256";
    chart.height = "26";
    chart.containerBackgroundOpacity = "0";
    chart.renderAt = chart.id + "Container";
    chart.showChartLoadingMessage = false;
    chart.showDataLoadingMessage = false;
    FusionCharts.render(chart);
}

How can I easily add a monthly revenue monitoring component to my dashboard?

Adding a revenue monitoring mechanism is not as simple as it might seem. It involves lots of data, responsive and interactive visualizations, and, most importantly, accurate data reflection. If you develop them from scratch, all these elements can cause a wide range of problems and would require an enormous amount of effort.

Thankfully, FusionCharts provides you with a simple mechanism to integrate the monthly revenue monitoring component in your dashboard that involves just a few lines of JavaScript code. Once you plug it in, everything is handled internally by the FusionCharts library itself.

Take a look!

JavaScript

var i, chart;
/**
* "companyMonitorData" is defined in data.js.
* Loop over companyMonitorData.revenues for Revenue section of
* Company Monitor to create sparkcolumn type chart for each section.
*/
for (i = 0; i < companyMonitorData.revenues.length; i++) {
    chart = companyMonitorData.revenues[i];
    chart.type = "sparkcolumn";
    chart.width = "118";
    chart.height = "38";
    chart.containerBackgroundOpacity = "0";
    chart.renderAt = chart.id + "Container";
    chart.showChartLoadingMessage = false;
    FusionCharts.render(chart);
}

HTML

<table id="revenueMonitorTable">
    <thead>
        <th>&nbsp;</th>
    </thead>
    <tbody>
        <tr>
            <td>Total Monthly Revenue</td>
            <td>Monthly Product Revenue</td>
            <td>Monthly Service Revenue</td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td class="revenue-monitor-table-right-border-cell">
                <div id="revenueTotalContainer"></div>
            </td>
            <td class="revenue-monitor-table-right-border-cell">
                <div id="revenueProductContainer"></div>

            </td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td>
                <span class="revenue-monitor-table-number">3.33</span>
                <span class="revenue-monitor-table-number-definition">Million</span>
            </td>
            <td>

            </td>
            <td>
                <span class="revenue-monitor-table-number">0.69</span>
                <span class="revenue-monitor-table-number-definition">Million</span>
            </td>
        </tr>
        <tr>

            <td></td>
