KPI Dashboard

A KPI dashboard is a visual display of key performance indicators (KPIs), measurable values that are used to monitor business performance against future objectives and evaluate failure or success in reaching strategic targets, such as for a project, a product or an entire organization.

Like regular dashboards KPI dashboards use powerful data visualization and data storytelling techniques, such as interactive charts, graphs and tables, to allow for quick and clear examination of actual performance, and help business executives uncover actionable insights.
