Creating an effective data dashboard for your company is vital, but it can also be tricky without the right people, processes, and technology to support your data-driven growth goals. It’s important to assess your current data capabilities and compare them to where you want to be.

Here are some tips to consider when creating your data dashboard: 

  1. Focus on the Metrics that Truly Matter: When creating your data dashboard, focus on the metrics that truly matter to your department and start small. The goal is to tie all activities to company revenue.  
  2. Identify Integration Opportunities: Which tools would benefit from having shared data with other pieces of your tech stack? Connecting key systems can help streamline processes. 
  3. Automate Key Processes: Why crunch the numbers when technology can? Automation can help you quickly access and analyze data, enabling you to make the right decisions faster.
