Data visualization has become a standard part of the business intelligence fair. It is now expected that a business intelligence team include a rich set of graphics in the tooling used across the business. In the real-time world, we are faced with the challenge of handling data streams directly from operational tools. This real-time data when presented visually tend to immediately skew to highlight outliers and exceptions in the data.
In this Ask the Expert webinar, Andrew will answer your questions about the additional challenges of visualization of data streams that potentially contain unexpected values. In handling unexpected values, we need to consider presentation methods that are able to handle exceptions while still allowing the operators to understand the core datasets. Questions can include forms of visualization that are suitable for operational tooling, the specialization in tooling that may be needed for practical use, how data visualization can be applied to data validation of both the operational streams and the opportunity for high-density advanced visualization in the operational tooling.
