Smart Data Visualization Tells a Story to Support Business Decisions!
The Wharton School of Management reports that, ‘only half of an audience is convinced by a purely verbal presentation, but that number jumps to over two thirds when visuals are added.’ Why is that? The answer is simple. Our brains grasp and respond to images, colors and patterns and more quickly assimilate information. Presenting data with colors and shapes can help the audience to understand data by telling a story. Consider how difficult it is to dig into a spreadsheet with mountains of data versus viewing a simple picture that illustrates trends and numbers in a way that is easy to understand. That’s where data visualization comes in!
Data Visualization is comprised of a graphical representation of data. Using charts, maps and graphs, a user can visualize data results in a way that is easy to understand to spot trends, patterns, and outliers. It is an excellent way to present data to non-technical staff for discussion and decision-making. Data visualization can help your business analyze data and make decisions to improve operations and strategic initiatives.
- Identify issues and challenges and clearly see the cause of these issues.
- Explore customer buying behavior to improve product placement, pricing, and competitive positioning.
- Predict sales, product maintenance needs, supply chain issues, etc.
