In other words, instead of presenting data as simple text or in a basic grid, organizations can use data visualization tools to display data in the form of a chart, graph, or other visual element. Common data visualization graphics include, but are not limited to:
Interactive data visualization refers to visualization graphics like those above. However, the difference is that users can interact with them. Examples of interactive elements include buttons users can push or bars they can drag to explore how different variables affect data results. Organizations like interactive data visualization because of the added insights and value it delivers.
Make no mistake. Data visualization is not just about making data pretty. It’s about presenting data in

Breaking Down the Walls Every organization deals with data in one way or another—whether in a database, data warehouse, or other architecture type. With this data comes a management burden, as customer data must be protected in line with data regulations.

Improper data governance and security configurations can prevent data access entirely and leave data in the wrong internal or external hands.Explore
Better Insights in the Cloud Data analytics is not an entirely modern invention. The term “big data” was coined in the 1990s to describe massive data sets often used in the finance, science, and energy sectors. Since then, both the amount of data produced and the computing power it requires have grown at an astonishing rate. The tools and techniques honed through various scientific disciplines provide a platform for businesses to accelerate growth and make the most of their place in the market.Explore

Like many other businesses, they had found themselves sitting on a mountain of actionable data without any processes in place to explore or leverage said data. Their intentions were now pointed in the right direction, but what they were missing was a data monetization strategy.Explore
The Data Tide Businesses in the digital age are inundated with data as it floods in from multiple channels. This data is both a challenge to wade through and an absolute goldmine.

The problem is, however, that raw data itself can’t tell a compelling story to most people. It needs to be woven together artfully to create a narrative that connects with a specific audience. This is where data-driven storytelling comes in.Explore
