This post has inspired me to finish out my own lengthy version of the same thesis: Dashboards are useless.
Really great post, and my hope is that people will start putting insights before their charts so I don’t have to think as much. Computers are smart enough today to learn from data trends to interpret data movement and correlate it to other events using context clues. I’d rather let a computer do that comparison than having to be bright enough to discover that myself.
Nice work, guys!
