Visual Analytics for Making Smarter Decisions Faster

TDWI Speaker: David Stodder,TDWI Research Director

Time: 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET

Webinar Abstract

Business users today want to move past the limits of spreadsheets and canned business intelligence (BI) reporting to gain a richer, more personalized experience with data. Users want to explore data and discover new insights they can apply readily to improve business strategies, processes, operations, and customer engagement.

The key driver is analytics: Tools today can help organizations “democratize” analytics by enabling not just data analysts and data scientists but also business managers and users to interact with data productively to discover new insights for improving operations, satisfying customers, and reducing costs. Adding cutting-edge visualization and self-service data interaction and data preparation capabilities to analytics produces “visual analytics”—one of the hottest areas in business intelligence tools and applications today. 

Join this TDWI Webinar to learn research insights and best practices about visual analytics. The Webinar is based on TDWI’s recently released Best Practices Report, “Visual Analytics for Making Smarter Decisions Faster.” The report is based on an extensive research survey of business and IT professionals as well as interviews with users and industry experts. The Webinar will help you develop a practical strategy for pushing forward with visual analytics, especially as your organization pursues trends toward self-service analytics, data preparation, and operational intelligence, including decision management.

What you will learn:

  • How self-service BI and visual analytic data discovery are impacting enterprisewide decision making 
  • What leading organizations are doing to improve the user experience with data and enhance collaborative decision making and storytelling 
  • Trends toward easier, self-service data access, including to broader data sources through data munging and blending 
  • How visual analytics plays into strategic directions toward operational excellence and decision management
