Data Visualization

As Analytics grows in popularity, more organizations are bringing more data and complexity into their analyses.  Increasingly, organizations are starting to face a different challenge – they are drowning in data but parched for information and insights. 

“Visualizing information is a form of knowledge compression.” David McCandless

Many are turning to data visualization as a means to

  • Compress knowledge and insights from complex data sets and analysis

  • Make such insights accessible and understandable, even to those who may be less comfortable with numbers

  • Communicate such insights to a broader audience
