Visualized Data Powerful Persuasion - What makes visualized data, rather than static data, more powerful in persuading others in a business environment. I think that’s one of the shifts in -- well it's not even a shift, people have always used this information for these purposes because you don’t make organizational decisions in a vacuum.  You typically have to convince other people that your definition of the problem, your understanding of the problem is right, but then you have to go on to convince people to take an action.And so the old model of BI was this publishing, saying, well here it is and then PowerPoint and Excel and things like that became the means to deliver it.  And that environment was really great for explanation. It was great for things where you have known bounds because the exploration was already done for you by some IT analyst, who modeled the data and built a metadata layer in a particular way so, the known question, known bounds of the data for the answer. Then we get into the exploration which you didn’t really touch on there where visualization can enable that.  And then you explore it. You explain it. You have got to educate people going from here it is to here is how it works and why we need to take an action, to persuasion: to this is the action I think we should take...

Ways You Can Visualize Data - Some other ways you can visualize the data instead of a simple X and Y is multi dimensional visualization. Here we’re looking at data where we not only have an X and Y, but we have colored, sized and shaped our data. Again we can do explicit filtering. I can choose to look a specific region, say the west coast, and you notice that whenever you make a selection with the selection element all of the other selections are filtered based on the same underlying data. The reason for that is because within the west region there are only two divisions. So we’re saying, based on your initial selection, these are the other valid selections that you can make. So only this state would be considered based on your initial selection. With charting another possibility is that you can find outliers. You can see that we have this hover tool. It shows you what the data looks like. With that you can always highlight data points instead of doing a show details or instead of brushing it. You can also zoom in to see how those cluster of points relate to each other because those outliers are causing such a wide scaling of the X axis. So here we can highlight a little bit more of the movement toward collaboration. As long as you do not disable this option, any business user can actually make ad hoc changes, on the fly changes, on demand changes to the data binding...

What Are Visualization Tools - Visualization tools are software applications that allow users to create charts, images, diagrams, or animations to effectively communicate a message. When referring to business visualization tools, we need to creating visual guides of how our business is doing, that is easy understood by any level of employee at your company. Visualization is a technique that allows for the representation of data set graphically. When business data is large and very abstract, visualization tools help make the data easier to read and understand. Today, there are visualization tool for search, music, online communities, and almost anything, but none seem to be as vital as those used to dissect crucial business data, which also represent the greatest challenge...

What Is Visual Analysis? - Today we are here to talk about visual analysis and specifically working with data. What is visual analysis? The origin of visual analysis goes back to two of the success stories of computers in this world. One of them was databases. Back in the ‘60s, there were many different approaches to databases. In the ‘70s, relational algebra was developed, and relational databases emerged as a standard. This gave databases the property that they could support a high level query language. And in particular, they could support parallel and transactional queries, which allowed us to use them for everything. We use them for finance. We use them for medicine, retail, education, on and on like that. In the ‘90s, once we had all our data online, people started realizing they could do analytical reporting using data warehousing technologies. And then now, in this decade, there has been a focus on ad-hoc querying. Data is absolutely essential to our business. I would say that part of the financial problem we are having right now is because people took their eyes off the data. So this is the one huge success story of computer science...
