Tableau. Power BI. Modern BI platforms are providing organizations more complex ways to visualize and interact with data than ever before. However, we still see businesses struggle gaining insights and making decisions with their data.  Jason Harmer, BI Consultant with Groundswell Group, will discuss the five elements of good dashboard design that increase speed to insights. He will also talk about why (good) data visualization is important, overview of some of the historical dashboard design "rules," and show both good and not so good dashboards and their impact.
