Turning Big Data into a Compelling Visual Story with Data Visualization

Organizations now have the ability to store and process massive amounts of data like never before. And there are huge expectations for turning data into a fundamental driver for business transformation and competitive advantage.

But turning big data into useful information for the business decision maker is still a challenge. Interactive visual analytics, or data visualization, is one way to help make sense of big data. It can help virtually anyone see patterns and trends that other data analysis methods would overlook. This discussion is designed to help people see their data in new ways and to stimulate new ideas and discussion by:

  • Describing the connection between vision and cognition
  • Introducing the concepts of data visualization for big data
  • Presenting visual examples of good and bad choices for reporting and graphical displays
  • Demonstrating new techniques for effectively analyzing and displaying big data

This presentation will finish with a demo of the Tableau Software
