Dashboards and Data Visualization for Government



As with business enterprises, governmental agencies can greatly benefit from using enterprise performance management tools in more ways than you might have thought possible. For instance, imagine you are the head of a governmental agency. In carrying out your various duties, you are required to hold meetings in which you and your team often discuss critical issues, perhaps the various projects you have initiated to achieve your strategic planning objectives.


By leveraging the powerful data analytics capabilities of an excellent data visualization application, you can access the critical data you and your team need. Best of all, you will be able to drill down into that information to see, at first glance, what is actually happening in regards to the various initiatives you have rolling.


For example, when you navigate to your budget process measure on your data visualization software, you might wish to find a sure means of reducing overruns in your expenditure.


A good dashboard will display that specific project where you have noticed cost overruns, and its current status including specific metrics highlighted in red and you immediately can see it’s an issue with your budget. Next, you and your team will naturally want to find out just what has happened to make the dashboard highlight the budget in red. The finest data visualization tools dashboards come complete with a commenting feature on the data being displayed.


Therefore, you can read the comments and figure out rapidly what the issue is.

Thanks to data visualization software, you can very quickly zero in on the exact problem that occurred in your budget and take immediate action to effectively address the cost overrun. The key outcome in this given example was your dashboard helping you to be in a better position to take action and leverage data visualization tools to minimize cost.


The key takeaway is simple – data visualization was able to deliver to you the right information, enabling you to get the budget measure back on track without giving rise to any surprises when it came to the proper management of the project.
