BUSINESS DASHBOARD & VISUALIZATION APPLICATIONS
These apps let you view data from many different applications at once, on a single or multiple dashboards that can be viewed on your mobile phone (smartphone), desktop, big screen TV, or large monitor. There are a couple of important aspects and differences, they are all visualization tools that let you see charts and graphs of data that flow from other apps you use. Examples are Google Analytics data, Twitter or Facebook page follower growth, or sales leads. Some are more oriented to cloud operations.
You authorize (OAuth) the dashboard app to connect to your data source(s). Some of these tools have limited function freemium offerings, which are of course free and limited. Most allow for public or private dashboards, multiple dashboards, and have a number of existing integrations or dashboard widgets.
Several dashboards are web-based business intelligence (BI) tools that allow you to take data (pulling it via a SQL query), process the data, and then output a visualization. These BI apps are more in the ~US$1000 per user per year price range.
