Recorded May 2016
As data volumes within organizations are growing at an unprecedented scale, it is no surprise to see data visualizations being used more frequently as a means of communication. However, many organizations are unable to unlock the true power of data, and much of the difficulty can be attributed to improper use of data visualizations. A good data visualization humanizes the data by turning raw numbers into a story about the metrics. In this session we review some data visualization best practices and explore why they are important. You’ll leave this session with guidance on how to take boring, unreadable tables of data and turn them into useful and visually appealing reports. The session will be tool agnostic, but examples will be shown using Microsoft Power BI and Tableau.
