We are an IT company looking for a web application for dashboards. Typical use case: a dashboard with 14-day charts of KPI metrics.

Has to meet the following requirenents:
1. Web application, accessible from any browser, no client/plugin installation required.
2. Hosted on premises so that the data does not leave company datacenter.
3. Support of pulling data from an SQL source.
4. As easy to set up and fill with metrics as possible.

I was offered to use Looker, but we don't need full BI/analytics functionality, so looking for cheaper alternatives meeting our business requirements.

Any help is appreciated.
