"Visualizations reveal insights hiding in raw data, but without the right tools, they can be slow and difficult to build," shares Tableau. 


Luckily using a dashboarding tool allows you to see visualizations of your data - meaning you can quickly identify trends and problem areas. 

Using dashboards can transform the way you manage your projects. They help you to: 

  • Make more informed business decisions with real time data
  • Save significant capital costs
  • Spot project trends and identify projects with the greatest risks
  • Easily determine when to take action on ‘suspect’ projects
  • Get a 360 degree view of a project, program or portfolio
  • Eliminate data siloes within the organization
  • Graphically and visually display all your project data

But it's important to find the right business intelligence solution to get the most out of your visual data discovery. 

The most important things to consider when looking for a visualization tool are: 

  • Easy-to-use Interfaces
  • Interactive Discovery & Collaboration
  • Easily Accessed & Combined Data Sources
  • Built-in Visual Best Practices
