In today’s age, where data rules and controls the world, the art of data analysis and visualization is making sense to our world. Data analysts are Shaping volumes of raw data to create meaning from patterns and associations, maps and models, to help us draw actionable insights, understand trends, and even make informed decisions from the stories the data tell.
Data visualization is the graphical display of abstract information for three purposes:
- Making sense or to be able to comprehend
- Take well informed data-driven decisions
Data visualization is one of the most persuasive techniques for announcing results, proposing a solution or influencing a decision today—particularly in an era of ever-decreasing attention spans. Today entire organisation’s current data sources, for example your ERP, CRM’s and POS heavily generate data but how equipped are those organisations to give visualization to the extent that decisions can be made on top of this precious data. I’m not talking about fancy, colorful representation alone, but also the intelligent, drill down, self-serviced, easy pull of time-period, categories-based dataset representation.

To conclude – Only having valuable data is not sufficient today, capability to pull it from various sources and represent in a format where actionable insights can be drawn and decisions can be taken is equally, or rather more important.
Important stories live in our data and hence data visualization becomes a very powerful way to discover, understand these stories, present them to others and take decisions based on those facts.
