Data visualization tools are constantly evolving to offer more powerful features while improving accessibility and user-friendliness. With an increasing number of job roles requiring us to present data to back up our decision-making, visualization tools are an increasingly important tool in our working lives. Today’s top visualization and dashboarding tools are cloud-native, so they are able to connect with your data wherever it is stored, and the key trends are artificial intelligence, automation, and augmentation. This…

2020 was an astounding year for insightful, informative data visualization articles — here were the top 10 I saw all year (in no particular order), in each case including a representative quote from the piece and a brief note of why it was at the top of my must-read list: #1 — 39 studies about human perception in 30 minutes For the last several years, I’ve wondered about what we actually know from scientific studies about…

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. But how much data can a picture capture? Or, more interestingly, how can a picture tell a story that’s hiding in data? Our eyes can process vast amounts of information rapidly, and we can take advantage of that to make the most of our data. This is good, because big data is producing more data than ever before. Data analytics are being deployed in many domains and for…

As 2019 comes to a close, many business executives plan for the year ahead. If you’re pondering whether to hire big data talent in 2020, here are six reasons to take the leap 1. Delaying this hiring choice could put you behind the curve Statistics indicate positions in data science will increase by 364,000 by 2020, a shift will result in more than 2.7 million open roles throughout the country. Due to shortages, you may have…

Data warehousing is not dead, but it is changing as new technologies, including Hadoop and cloud platforms, have an impact. Nostalgia might be a strong driver in music, fashion, and entertainment, but it has never been a captivating force in technology. Mainframes and COBOL are still very much with us, but I don’t run into people polishing up their IBM System/390 as they would an Oldsmobile Toronado. The tech industry is always about the new,…

At the heart of the scientific method lies the ability to make sense from data. However, this is a challenge in the fast-moving field of biotechnology, where new experimental methods are creating huge amounts of complex data. These data promise to revolutionise healthcare, food and agriculture, but it can be difficult to extract answers to specific research questions from these sets of numbers. Data visualisation can help. Our eyes deliver information very rapidly to our brains, and…

At the point when we analyze past strategies for centralized server information examination to the capacities of current information representation programming, it’s stunning the amount more data an all around structured perception can give. I as of late went to a workshop of Edward Tufte, an analyst, craftsman, and Professor Emeritus of Political Science, Statistics, and Computer Science at Yale University. I was hypnotized by the riches and influence of data showed in an astounding…
