What Are the Three Types of Dashboards?

1. Operational

Operational dashboards provide an overview of current activity. They can be used to monitor real-time or transactional data. The data displayed in them are updated often, sometimes up to the minute for critical business functions. Operational dashboards help you to monitor and control the performance of your business by providing you with real-time metrics and insights into how your business is performing. They usually contain contextual information, too. So users can explore the data, and use it in the process of making decisions.

2. Analytic

Analytical dashboards can be used to analyze large volumes of data from various sources. They allow users to explore trends, predict outcomes, discover insights, and establish targets based on their understanding of historical data. Analytical dashboards traditionally were created and designed by data analysts. But the rise of self-service analytics tools has equipped everyone, from marketers and supply chain managers to c-level executives, to create their own dashboards.

3. Strategic

Dashboards are used by executives for monitoring the status of key performance indicators (KPIs). The strategic dashboard updates less frequently than the operational dashboard. They are designed to be used once daily to help executives stay on top of their organization's key performance indicators (KPIs). They typically summarize performance over a period time (month, quarter or year).
