I really liked going through all of these dashboards. Some of them were very pretty, but to the point where I had to make more of an effort to extract quantitative information from them (e.g. Lancaster Bingo Company). Whereas others really hit the mark. I think Toutapp is my favorite on this page because it gives you graphs and then little blurbs that sum up some of the key findings in the graph. I’d rather have more, accurate, data displayed + a good summary, than just a summary or pretty icon any day.
We live in a world of big (and little) data, and many people have to make sense of numbers as part of their job. The trouble is that there can be a lot of friction involved when mining the data.
