Through Data Visualization Towards Business Optimization

An ever-increasing number of organizations and associations involve gathering and reporting a wide range of information and data. But how can you unravel the relationships and predictive information that can make a difference for your business results? More importantly, how can you ensure that you can quickly detect red flags that help identify and prevent risks?

Visualization of Big Data

Ownership of big data is a good start, but ownership alone won’t enable your organization to win the information war. Data, in its original form, is just raw information with the potential to become knowledge. The real value lies in using these databases to create descriptive and even predictive models usable for business purposes. Doing so will allow authorized employees from all layers of your organization to easily extract the essential insights from enormous amounts of information (Big Data) and effectively apply them as part of their daily business routine. These insights can take forms of management information systems, dashboards, and reports. Besides, the right visualization of multiple performance indicators in one dashboard allows for easy comparison and the discovery of surprising relationships between business elements that otherwise would have remained unnoticed.

What are the potential difficulties with Data Visualization?

Unfortunately, many organizations do not have the essential in-house knowledge and capacity to visualize their data. Where data visualizations are being made, it is mostly in such a way that it becomes nearly impossible to discover meaningful correlations and relationships that are not already known. It has proven to be challenging to generate ‘real-time’ dashboards as filtering and sorting newly acquired data is often a time-consuming process for many organizations. Some businesses are guilty of making various reports for different business purposes, resulting in inconsistent reporting with different definitions and data interpretations. This makes it difficult to interpret these different reports’ insights and results in confusion rather than an edge over competitors.The pitfalls of inaccurate data visualization, if unaware, can cause essential insights to remain hidden within the databases. Insights that otherwise would have supported the company in determining valuable information such as market trends, budgeting, timely detection of unnecessary costs, and other ‘Red Flags.’
