Lately I've been researching the data visualization space and how dashboards really benefit organizations. The general value of dashboards may seem obvious to some, but actually defining the proper metrics and aligning those to an organization's overall strategic goals may not be as obvious. Especially when organizations try to manage everything as opposed to looking at the key metrics that tie in to specific performance goals - whether with individual employees, departments, or the organization as a whole.
In a recent conversation with Allan Wille, the President and CEO of Klipfolio, he discussed that one of the trends within the dashboard industry is the expansion of dashboard use to include non-management employees and the customization of metrics towards each individual or group based on their role within the organization - basically the advent of operational BI through the use of data visualization.
