@ WaqasAltaf    I agree.  I like the use of data viualization but users should have to the ability to drill down to real numbers, especially for those who need or like them.

Importance of numbers as well

Data visualization may be a good technique to clarify the picture of the situation in a executive meeting however when measuring year-to-year or quarter-to-quarter results, numbers become a necessity for future planning. My point is that to present the statistical situation in layman terms for viewers who might find it a hassle to review all the numbers in a MIS report or excel file, data visualization is good but for the users who plan to perform thorough analysis for decision making, planning & budgeting or forecasting purposes, the numbers are the only thing they are concerned about. Nevertheless, the benefits of data visualization stand good in their own place.

@ magneticnorth

Lolz. Nice one.

Jokes apart, companies should learn that how a data visualization product can be both interesting for users/customers and can also give answers to their questions in as simplistic manner as this bowl of pie does.

@Noreen I've noticed that some of the reviewers on the Banana site complain about  the inconsistency of sizing. They don't know which size to order because some of the clothes are cut much bigger than they find elsewhere. They generally attribute it to "vanity sizing," making the size 8 feel good about fitting into a size 2.

@bulk great minds think alike! They also know that they are not likely to think alike with those assigned to their groups!

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.
