This powerful business dashboard is designed for those who operate a business mostly on the Web. While that might make it seem like the target market is small or medium-sized companies, many larger organizations gravitate toward online tools such as Prefinery.com (a beta management tool), Pingdom (to track the performance of a Web site) or GitHub.com (to track bugs in an application). GeckoBoard shows a summary of these Web services plus about two dozen more. The interface is subdued, like GoSquared, so that the data tends to jump out and is easy to identify and track.
