Kichecko, I think we can attribute the strength of the visuals to a high-end analytics front-end and good questions!

Beth, - Indeed what is left now is the asking of the right questions because the visuals themselves are great. its so easy to immediately interpret the graphs here...not sure if that is attributable more to a good graphing tool or good question asking or both but certainly a great thing.

I tried some of the demos and the visual rendering is just amazing. It takes a while for my browser to download everything, but all the visuals are really great.

I really like the tab design that gives the in depth data by specific category and the overview data that is depicted with visuals, it gives readers a clear and direct view of the information and areas where they should look further.

have you had a chance to play around with any demos?


 

 

Nice visuals.  Definitely beats plain old text in a presentation.

I wonder if SAS has applied this to public transportation...

And coming up with the right questions to ask is really what it's all about!

I can't gamble either.  One time I gambled $5, won $12 and  quit when I was ahead. :)  

I really like how the graphics are easy to read.  The easier it is to understand, the easier it is to come up with the right questions and the later communicate the right answers.  And the faster one can come up with those answers, the better business can be executed.

Like many people, I'm a visual kind of person and Visual Analytics helps give numbers a value perspective. I like the Casino Floor Performance demo that breaks down revenue performance by casino section and also by machine manufacturer and model. That info gives the casino the ability to tweak their slot machines in the event they are paying out too many winners. And based on the analytics, the restaurant section looks like the winner for slot plays.
