Benefit of Dashboard Reporting for Government Operations

By admin, June 23, 2017

Dashboard reporting has never been more important to the government. Considering the humungous streams of data collected through government agencies and programs, the challenge is how to make sense of these data in a way that they will benefit the organization and perhaps save large amounts of money as a result. The use of this type of reporting has been exalted by the US.

In the US

The US administration flaunted the advantages of using dashboards during the presidency of Barack Obama. They said that using a dashboard is an effective way of collating and filtering data so that these data become useful to decision makers. They credited the dashboard for being able to make them see better the implications of data and act on them appropriately.

One example cited by the government is how a dashboard helped them see the status of their investments, particular in pursuing the advance of technology.

The claim from the administration of Obama was that they were able to make better decisions using the data presented by the dashboard. According to them, this led to billions of dollars in savings and cutting delivery time for technological projects.

The US Congress has communicated a positive sentiment on the matter of using a government dashboard for federal decision-making and operations. It expressed interest in increasing the use of transparency tools, such as dashboards, across federal spending programs.

It is expected that more efforts will be exerted towards this goal and the use of dashboards may even be continued to be implemented after Obama relinquishes his office.
