Image Gallery: See Connections with Visualization

Take this visual tour of our 'Next-Era Business Intelligence' report on the effective use of information visualization.

There's little doubt that visualization will be a cornerstone in the next era of business intelligence. Building on the foundation of basic charting, data graphics and dashboard displays, the growing palate of visualization makes analyses more accessible and understandable to a general business audience -- as well as to seasoned BI professionals.

Whether you consider the latest forms of geospatial analysis and treemaps or simple sparklines and bubble charts, visual analysis help us see and understand patterns in large, complex data sets. The challenge is to match the right style of visualization with the available information and, most importantly, the point you are trying to convey.

This "See Connections with Visualization" image gallery offers key visual highlights from the Intelligent Enterprise/InformationWeek Analytics report, "Seeing Connections: Visualization Makes Sense of Data." The full report (registration required for the free download) looks at emerging forms of visualization and how they can help you communicate relationships, add historical context, uncover hidden correlations and tell persuasive stories that clarify and call to action.

The report also shows that you have to be clear about what you want to communicate before you can choose the right style of visualization. The Internet and advances in computing have not only challenged us to make sense of more data and more sources of information, they have raised expectations for fast and effective communication. Thus, visualization is now an essential tool to discovering and sharing business intelligence.
