Exactly -- that's a big differentiator between yesterday's infographics and today's dynamic data visualization!

How true. Visualization gives one a snapshot view of data. If you want/need the details then chisel down.

LOL. I dare you to present a data visualization a la what you played around with yesterday in the SAS VA demo and see what the senior managers have to say about that!

The people I present my data to every month are other engineers and senior managment. I mean being engineers we do enjoy raw data in spreadsheet form ;-) But when I added the line graph you might think I just invented the light bulb.

Ah, the dreaded spreadsheet. I guess a big question is who the recipients are. If they're most comfortable receiving their insight in that format change can be pretty hard to implement.

Beth, 

Today all my network data is pulled from a monitoring tool and presented in a spreadsheet :-( 

The only visualization used is a line graph to show useage, which is something I started when I took over the report about 2 years ago. Before that everyone had to click through the different sheets to see the usage from earlier months.

Bulk, what are you using today to produce your reports? Do they include any sort of visualizations?

Beth, agree. I would love to be able to produce my network usage reports with this tool, or even something half as amazing.

bulk, goodbye productivity for now, because you're still in play mode. But imagine how much MORE productive you could become if your organization had this inhouse!

A good point. The charts and system will undoubtedly needs some explaining to be useable by staff in order to not "waste time." With all the variations and permutations available easily to everyone, there has to be some training involved to get employees to start looking in the right direction when using visual analytics.

It Pays to Keep Insurance Fraud in Check
While 97% of insurers say that insurance fraud has increased or remained the same in the past two years, most of those companies report benefits from anti-fraud technology in limiting the impact of fraud, including higher quality referrals, the ability to uncover organized fraud, and improve efficiency for investigators.
