Data analytics and visualization involve more than drawing a chart or picture. Visualization enables us to more effectively process large volumes of information, identifying trends and areas for improvement. A multi-dimensional image can be rotated and twisted to uncover relationships among groups of data rather than focusing on individual occurrences.  

Presenting new perspectives to identify trends

Data visualization is a powerful technique, and the ability to form hypotheses and produce simple, informative graphics is more important than technical wizardry. The most successful pictures are those that lead to new insights and actions.

By presenting data in such dynamic ways, data visualization techniques enable analysts to discover new trends or patterns in less than half the time of traditional statistical techniques. More important, because analysts can "see" their data and follow how the patterns emerge, they are likely to have greater confidence in the meaning and reliability of the results. In addition, interactive visualization, in-memory technology and mobile enablement are important advancements, enabling self-service business intelligence and analytics. Today’s users expect information on the right device; at the right time and location.
