BAN140 Introduction to Data Visualization WorkShop10 Page 3 of 9 Part One: Introduction The business world is enamored by dashboards. Why? Few static reporting tools emulate the interactivity and drill down capabilities of a dashboard, making dashboards an incredibly powerful decision-making tool. In normally, you will likely create numerous data visualizations. Each of these visualizations gives you a snapshot of a story within the data. Each insight into the data answers a question or two. At times, the discovery and analysis phase are enough for you to make a key decision and the cycle is complete. In other cases, you will need to bring the snapshots together to communicate a complete and compelling story to your intended audience. Tableau allows you to bring together related data visualizations into a single dashboard. This dashboard could be a static view of various aspects of the data or a fully interactive environment, allowing users to dynamically filter, drill down, and interact with the data visualizations. Allowing the audience to interact with a dashboard and change the details being displayed provides a means to shift context leading to new and potentially important discoveries. Assembling dashboards in Tableau is fun for the designer and good dashboard design can delight audience. Dashboard definition From a Tableau perspective, a dashboard is an arrangement of individual visualizations, along with other components such as legends, filters, parameters, text, containers, images, extensions, buttons, and web objects that are arranged on a single canvas. Ideally, the visualizations and components should work together to tell a complete and compelling data story. Dashboards are usually (but not always) interactive.
