Universal Dashboard and Grafana are completely different solutions. While Universal Dashboard can provide the same functionality as Grafana, it requires a working knowledge of PowerShell. Unlike it’s name may suggest, Universal Dashboard is much more than just dashboards. You can build entire tools using UD and PowerShell that accept user input, interact with React components and update dynamically. Grafana is all about reporting. UD is much more about providing a web framework for PowerShell.
