When data gets complex, there's no better way to understand it than a business dashboard. You can cull data from your website analytics engine, an Oracle database, social media campaigns and more, all to see how they interrelate.
Unfortunately, some dashboards are overly cluttered and actually make data more complicated to understand. The seven tools featured here use more color, graphs, clear delineations and white space to make data more understandable. The cost for using these dashboards varies depending on the number of sources you use, the amount of data you're analyzing and how many admin users you have involved.
