This program is a joint program of IIM Indore and SAS and includes an attempt for Global professional Certification from SAS®. Data Visualization has become a vital activity for managers in the context of business analytics. It involves ad-hoc querying and investigation of data for decision making. Considering the fact that nowadays, businesses being tightly coupled with technology solutions, operational level data is being generated on continuous basis requiring continuous investigation for operational and strategic purposes.
Visualizing data can be both fun and challenge. It is much easier to understand information in a visual format compared to a large table with lots of rows and columns. However, with many visualization choices available, it is possible that the visual creator may end up presenting the information using the inappropriate visualization. In some cases, there are specific visuals one should use for certain data. In other instances, the audience may dictate which visualization is being presented. In the latter scenario, showing an alternative visualization that conveys information in better way, may provide just what’s needed to easily grasp the most relevant factors affecting important decisions.
