It is well known that human understanding is much more effective with pictures than with rows and columns of numbers. However, much of the output from business intelligence environments remains trapped in traditional reporting formats. In this workshop, we explore best practices in deriving insight from vast amounts of data using visualization techniques. Examples from traditional data as well as an in-depth look at geospatial analytics will be featured. We will examine visualization for both strategic and operational BI. A key theme is exposing actionable decisions through the use of visualization techniques. Examples from a variety of industries will be employed.
