Understanding Dashboards, KPIs, and Analytics for Your Business

The concepts of dashboards, KPIs and analytics can get blurred. They are related but distinct from one another. The following analogy might help keep things straight.

That figure comes from the car’s electronics looking at your speed and gas tank level and offering an analysis regarding how much farther you can go at that rate.
