Business dashboards are now a basic requirement for all businesses, small or large. This is because they help managers track key performance indicators (KPIs) as well as the progress of various departments and employees in a company. They also enable users to monitor detailed metrics, study short and long-term trends and decide future plans and strategies.

While business dashboards may look intricate and complex, however, with the right set of tools and technology, they are easy to create and design. Read on to find out why dashboard creation is not as difficult as you think. Learn how you can build an awesome and amazing dashboard with the FusionCharts library for data visualization.

What Is a Business Dashboard?

A business dashboard is an interactive and dynamic interface to visualize data, statistics, and various metrics using charts, graphs, and maps.  A single dashboard generally comprises multiple graphs and illustrations of different parameters. It enables its users to track, monitor, and analyze key performance indicators as well as other metrics.
