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.

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.

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.
