Use a key performance indicator (KPI) to visualize a comparison between a key value and its target value.

A KPI displays a value comparison, the two values being compared, and a visual that provides context to the data that's displayed. You can choose from a set of predesigned layouts to suit your business needs. The following image shows an example of a KPI visual that uses a sparkline.
