Google placing value in dashboard

Just in case we have not caught up in some time, I switched jobs about a year ago this month. I joined a much larger, worldwide organization in their business intelligence unit. Since then, most of my work has been generating reporting templates and publishing dashboards. Which is why this article caught my eye.

Sure, we can get into theory about visual intelligence, summation strategies and usability, but this isn’t really the place. I’ll admit – not too many places would be ‘the place’ for that discussion.

Whats important is two things. The first is that google is adapting in the world of quick and consolidated information, meaning business intelligence will continue to be a driving force of business since Google is an ‘opinion leader’ for both business standards and technology adaptation. The second is that now you can see what google knows about you – and you are allowed to be frightened by that!
