Effective Data Visualisation is crucial for helping you and your team to get an efficient understanding of your data. Our brains are wired such that we process visual stimuli quickly with minimal effort. This is why data visualisation is important. If done in a clear and engaging way, you subliminally gauge the trends of your data as well as noting similarities and differences in the patterns of sets of data, before you’ve actually read the numbers and values properly. Maintaining this standard of visual engagement can become difficult when you’re wanting to look at numerous sets of data at once. This is when you see the value of a good Qlik dashboard.
Think about a Qlik dashboard like the dashboard of a car. Car dashboards are designed to give you a top-level picture of what’s going on with the car in the form of gauges, displays and indicators. When you’re driving, you can’t be distracted by keeping track of individual processes and readings. Such to avoid crashing, the dashboard gives an effective top-line picture of how the car is performing.
A Qlik dashboard is reminiscent of this in that it brings together numerous data visualisations to give the user a summary of how different aspects of a business are performing.
There is much more to creating a Qlik dashboard design than simply bringing together data visualisations onto one screen, however. It is important to format them in a way that is logical, sensible and reusable, making the dashboard easily digestible. Doing this will enable ease of use and access for your wider team.
