As Big Data becomes a reality for more and more organizations and as the variety of data that they need to work with becomes more complex, it is increasingly hard for end-users to keep pace using traditional reporting and query tools. The explosion in volume and complexity of data had led to new techniques being applied to how data is presented and explored and one of the key techniques is data visualization.
Leveraging presentation techniques and exploration methods originally developed for scientific and engineering visualization, companies like Tableau Software have now made visualization accessible, understandable and affordable for companies of any size. This has enabled business users to present volumes and types of data (e.g. location based information) in compelling and meaningful ways that allow them to identify relationships not apparent using traditional BI techniques.
At 10:30am Pacific Time on December 6th, Actian and Tableau will co-host a webinar called ”Breath Taking Visualization + Record Performance” to launch our partnership and introduce business users to the key concepts around data visualization. Register now for this webinar and see a live demonstration of software of which CFO Magazine said: In terms of generating useful, multidimensional visual analysis, it’s like going from an Etch-a-Sketch to Industrial Light and Magic. Quite simply, it’s the best piece of software CFO has run across in years.
Find out why CFO Magazine raved about Tableau Software and learn why Actian believes that data visualization is a highly complementary approach to our own concept of Action Apps. Please join me for this important and informative event!
