In the rapidly evolving knowledge-driven economy of the 21st century, data or information is increasingly being recognized as a factor of production. With constantly improving methods and technology for data collection, processing, storage and communication, individuals and organizations are presently grappling with how to cope with an avalanche of data. To survive, thrive and stay ahead of competitors in this era of ‘big data’, business organizations are looking towards affordable ICT products and technologies for solutions. In the last decade and a half, two independent but closely related concepts have taken center – stage in the efforts to leverage information for business performance. These are ‘data visualization’ and ‘business intelligence’.
While business intelligence is generally concerned with making sense of all the data that is being generated and gathered each and every day by organizations of all types, the challenge often lies in how to disseminate these data in a timely and efficient way. How do we get data to the people who need it in a way that makes the most sense to them? How do we find outliers within the data that need to be managed? And how do we communicate key performance indicators (KPIs) that are common across the organization in a way that can be understood by all? The answers lie with data visualization.
