Strong Visual Representation

The first best practice when it comes to BI dashboard design is the bare basics of how you should want your dashboard to be represented visually. First and foremost, a BI dashboard gives you a high-level look into your company’s key performance indicators (KPIs) so that you can assess the various goals that matter to your position or business as a whole. That being said, it’s a BI tool's job to aggregate and arrange data so that it’s relevant and highly visible to end users who depend on accurate information in order to make high-level decisions that impact a company’s welfare.

As far as business buzzwords go, the terms Big Data, data visualization, data structure, predictive analytics and business intelligence all get thrown around with the frequency of a used car salesman putting together his best customer pitch. In fact, when it comes to acquiring a business intelligence tool, you might hear the mention of these terms ad nauseam. That being said, if you’re truly serious about implementing business intelligence technology into your workflow, then you need to be absolutely positive of the different initiatives that you want to fulfill.

Even if your business intelligence (BI) dashboard ends up looking professional and offers beautifully rendered graphs that you can use to wow your company’s CEO, it won’t mean anything unless you have the right data in the right dashboard. That’s why Himanshu Sareen, CEO of Icreon Tech, has compiled a list of the best practices for choosing a well-designed business intelligence dashboard.
