Data Visualization Training

Data visualization tools are becoming more popular and necessary to deal with exponential data growth, but the cost of purchasing separate solutions, and the time it takes to implement each one, makes it a great challenge.

An old saying by Michelangelo says: “Man paints with his brain, not his hand.” This rings true for the creation of visual reports and dashboards. In our experience, many projects delivered subpar results and visualization tools become shelf wear. This is primarily due to poorly designed visual analysis models and/or lack of internal skills to properly plan, manage and deliver the required capabilities.
