It’s time for the death of the analytics dashboard

The demise of the analytics dashboard is upon us.

Dashboards are simply no longer able to keep up with the pace of business, and have therefore outlived their usefulness, according to Cindi Howson, chief data strategy officer at ThoughtSpot and host of The Data Chief Podcast.

At that time, officials from Renault’s low-cost brand refused to go into details, vaguely talking about implementing “intelligent development solutions” for the new model. Fast forward to today, we believe our spy photographers have caught the mysterious car.

Hyundai 45 EV Crossover Spied For The First Time

The Hyundai Concept 45 apparently has a production version on the way. These spy shots catch the electric crossover’s development in the snow. Unfortunately, it’s under very heavy camouflage, so it’s hard to get a good look at the upcoming model. Look for sales to start in 2021.

Despite the considerable concealment, there is a slight resemblance to the Concept 45. The transition to a road-going version forces the company to fit different headlights, rather than the bank of individual LEDs on the show car.

We’ve all been there. The moment when you realize your car keys aren’t in the first, second, third, or fourth place you normally leave them. Now you’re late for work, or for a doctor’s appointment, or whatever equally dire situation that presents itself.
