This article provides an overview of the user interface that you will use for analyzing and presenting your data. In-depth descriptions will be introduced with individual functions and features.
The Analyze tab gives you access to our Analytical Designer. To create an insight, you simply drag-and-drop measures from the Data Catalog onto the main canvas and then use drop-down menus to modify parameters.
Measures can be simple measures based on facts or calculated measures that are calculated from other measures. Hover your mouse over the question mark next to the measure name in the Data Catalog to see the details.
For more information, see Analytical Designer.
KPI Dashboards is a tool created with data consumers in mind. This is where you construct your KPI dashboards from KPI indicators and insights that you created in Analytical Designer.

For comprehensive data loading guides, see Data Preparation and Distribution.
The Manage section serves as the administration layer and provides you with an overview and tools to organize your data, measures, workspaces and users.
The Manage tab gives you access to underpinnings of GoodData and, as a result, it sometimes uses slightly different terms.

For example, when you will be Getting Started with Your Own Metrics, you will use the Metric Editor to build new metrics which will then appear among your Analytical Designer's Data Catalog measures.
For more details, see GoodData Portal.
Data Integration Console
You access the Data Integration Console, also known as DISC, either from the Manage section or by clicking your name in the upper right corner of the UI and selecting the Data Integration Console from the dropdown list.
You will use the Data Integration Console to connect to you data sources, deploy process, and create schedules to synchronize your data between a data warehouse and your GoodData workspace.
