Visual Reporting and Analysis: Seeing is Knowing

It’s been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. A well-designed chart or dashboard can communicate more information in a compact space than a traditional tabular report. More importantly, these visual displays can steer the viewer’s eyes quickly to the most salient information, accelerating time to insight. In addition, visual technology has become interactive, making visualization an important analytical tool.

This webinar will examine advances in the visual display of data and how organizations are harnessing this technology to enhance reporting, analysis, and performance management. It will synthesize best practices for designing visual displays for reports, dashboards, and advanced analytics

What you will learn:

  • How visualization can transform a BI solution
  • Different types of data visualizations and their business uses
  • Best practices and pitfalls for designing visual displays
