Smart Visualization Tools: Analysis and Data Displays Made Simple (and Clear)
Smart Data Visualization! This concept seems alien to some people. Is it data that can read your mind and automatically display itself in a way that will help you understand? Is it a method you use to see data in a clear way; a technique you learn in a class? The answer is yes…and no.
Smart visualization is made possible by using advanced analytical tools and business intelligence solutions that are designed to use sophisticated analytical algorithms for analysis and offer data visualization that is easy to understand and use. To meet this objective, data visualization tools must allow your users to gather and display data in a way that will allow them to exploit the opportunities and identify the problems and to get to the ‘meat’ of the issues quickly and easily.
Smart visualization should include auto-recommend, and auto-suggest data displays to recommend displays, views, and plotting to explore the best possible value from underlying data. It should display and analyze data In a way that is useful to users and to their role, and it should provide clear, concise displays and options and formats to help users understand that data. It should also analyze, forecast and predict so that users can identify patterns and trends and get valuable insight.
In short, Smart Data Visualization goes beyond data display to suggest options for visualization and plotting for certain types of data, based on the nature, dimensions and trends inherent in the data, so users can leverage sophisticated tools in an easy-to-use, drag and drop interface, with no advanced skill requirement or technical knowledge.
