When, and how, to best make use of data visualization tools
It's clear that data visualization software is catching the eyes of more and more companies. In a recent TechTarget reader survey, 44% of 664 respondents cited an expected increase in data visualization initiatives over the next 12 months. And with good reason. Data visualization can help business users better understand -- and act upon -- business intelligence and analytics data.
This special issue of our Business Information e-zine follows the trend. Readers will explore data visualization trends and strategies for managing successful visualization processes in organizations. Experts help to identify how and when to best visualize data, with tips for turning especially complex data sets into effective data visualizations. Real-world examples of data visualization projects in action and advice on incorporating data visualizations into BI dashboards round out our coverage.
