July 2, 2019 Jeff Hainsworth

 

What are the differences between dashboards and reports? Aren’t they the same thing? Well, a lot of people use the two terms interchangeably, but in business intelligence, there are very distinct differences between dashboards and reports.

The differences we’ll be covering are:

  • Form Factor
  • Different Metrics
  • Real-Time • Performance
  • Usability
  • Exporting
  • Data Volumes
  • Intelligence
