Today’s organisations are faced with an ever-expanding volume of data to which we refer when making decisions. Financial data; operational data; production data; sales data…the list goes on and on. Unfortunately, these datasets are often complex, stored in difficult to interpret tabular or textual formats and it is often not accessible in a context that facilitates insight or broad understanding. Additionally, organisations often lack efficient ways to easily access and explore related sets of data in a unified manner. This makes it more difficult to understand relationships in the data and tap into its value. Effective data visualization is the answer.
Data visualization is the visual representation of data, meaning “information which has been abstracted in some schematic form, including attributes or variables for the units of information”.
Goal of data visualization:
The main goal of data visualization is to communicate information clearly and effectively through graphical means.
To convey ideas and interpret the data effectively, both aesthetic form and functionality need to go hand in hand during the design and deployment of your data visualization platform. The problem is that designers often fail to achieve a balance between design and function, creating gorgeous data visualizations which fail to serve their main purpose – to communicate information.
