What is Data Visualization ?
Data visualization is a general term that describes any effort to help people understand the significance of data by placing it in a visual context. Patterns, trends and correlations that might go undetected in text-based data can be exposed and recognized easier with data visualization software.

Why Data Visualization ?
A primary goal of data visualization is to communicate information clearly and efficiently via statistical graphics, plots and information graphics. Numerical data may be encoded using dots, lines, or bars, to visually communicate a quantitative message. Effective visualization helps users analyze and reason about data and evidence. It makes complex data more accessible, understandable and usable. Users may have particular analytical tasks, such as making comparisons or understanding causality, and the design principle of the graphic (i.e., showing comparisons or showing causality) follows the task. Tables are generally used where users will look up a specific measurement, while charts of various types are used to show patterns or relationships in the data for one or more variables.

Data visualization is both an art and a science. It is viewed as a branch of descriptive statistics by some, but also as a grounded theory development tool by others. The rate at which data is generated has increased. Data created by internet activity and an expanding number of sensors in the environment, such as satellites, are referred to as "Big Data". Processing, analyzing and communicating this data present a variety of ethical and analytical challenges for data visualization. The field of data science and practitioners called data scientists have emerged to help address this challenge.

Because of the way the human brain processes information, using charts or graphs to visualize large amounts of complex data is easier than poring over spreadsheets or reports. Data visualization is a quick, easy way to convey concepts in a universal manner – and you can experiment with different scenarios by making slight adjustments.

Data visualization can also:
- Identify areas that need attention or improvement.
- Clarify which factors influence customer behavior.
- Help you understand which products to place where.
- Predict sales volumes.

Unicom Shall be Organising 1 day Event on Data Visualization on September 01st in Mumbai. This event is desgined after lot of research, advise from industry experts and voice of customer.

It will help you in understanding and implementing data visualization in your business/for your client .

X Topic Abstract

In today's information age having a trusted source of information is absolutely necessary. Most of the organizations today consider data as an important asset. It is therefore absolutely important to hold the data to highest standards of quality.

Asking the question, "Is Your Data Fit?" is too broad based and reactive. Evaluating data quality and moving to a proactive capability requires thoughtful data quality metrics. Improving data fitness requires using short, repeatable processes and a thoughtful set of metrics to measure progress.

Once the measures are defined the next stage is to establish a system of accountability to make right decision for information management and related processes. The Data Governance defines Who, What, When and How to manage data and realize value from it, minimize costs, manage risks and ensure compliance.

Data Governance drives business led ownership, a long-term and continuous change journey supported by the right mindset, tools and information At Accenture, we effectively use Data Visualization to align data quality metrics to business KPIs (Key Performance Indicator) to increase business user awareness, identify the real issues that impact cost, revenue, profit or other important business metrics. This enables the data owners to understand the quality of enterprise data, its impact to business and help drive the business case for investment in data quality improvements. As an outcome Data Governance is more effectiveness in improving the enterprise data quality

X Topic Abstract

Visualisation plays a very important role for not just big industries but also for small buisnesses and start up's. Tables and plain simple bar charts could show you the numbers but little can they help you on deriving the trends between various data points. Visualisation in todays fast paced industry helps to derive actionable insights.

My objective is to show how startups are using visualisations to make better decisions and how something simple as your phone's data could be used for visualisation and completely change your perspective on the horizons that visualisations of such data opens up.

X Topic Abstract

Today, data visualization is increasingly taking its rightful place as an important part of business intelligence. It is being talked about, investigated, requested by people who work with data, purchased by people who hold the purse strings, and used by a growing percentage of people in the workforce, especially analysts.

One of the encouraging new trends in business intelligence is the growing recognition that the greatest benefits of data visualization will come in the form of analytics. Visual analysis software allows us to not only represent data graphically, but to also interact with those visual representations to change the nature of the display, filter out what’s not relevant, drill into lower levels of detail, and highlight subsets of data across multiple graphs simultaneously. This makes good use of our eyes and assists our brains, resulting in insights that cannot be matched by traditional approaches. Static graphs delivered on paper or electronically on a computer screen help us communicate information in a clear and enlightening way, which is a benefit that should not be undervalued, but it is from visual analytics that businesses will derive the greatest benefits

X Topic Abstract

Interactive Data Visualization: The art of making your data tell a story.

You already know how well can the data speak for itself. As a data scientist, your real motive should be explaining the model to stakeholders. The real comes in presenting data to non-analytics stakeholders. They don’t want numbers, but a beautifully crafted story using numbers. If you are able to accomplish this task using D3, great job.

X Topic Abstract

The world of data is ever evolving. There is no stopping to the variety, the volume, the velocity and veracity of data. But is data alone sufficient? Does the buck stop at data itself?

Data and analytics is not an end in itself. Data visualization plays a key role in identifying trends, understanding businesses, and quickly grasping. Data visualization is like the human face emerging out of the numbers and the figures. Data visualizations is often the key pivot that enables the entire transition from numbers to strategy. Is not data itself, but its visualization, that has the power to shape business decisions on a daily basis.

What then is visualization? What are the various types of visualizations? What are the best ways to look at data in a manner that is clean, simple and easy to understand? This talk will cover such aspects.
