The tried and true method of static data analysis is in fact tired and lacking. Analytical technology has evolved, and many organizations have adopted tools that enable interactive data visualization and ad-hoc analysis. This eBook will illustrate the type of data discovery achieved through interactive visualization tools. Along the way, we’ll show you the advantages of going beyond the static presentation of information and reveal the kinds of insights that can be generated when users embrace ad hoc analysis.
"The appearance of your reports and dashboards – the actual visual appearance of your data analysis -- is important. An ugly or confusing report may be dismissed, even though it contains valuable insights about your data. Cognos Analytics has a long track record of high quality analytic insight, and now, we added a lot of new capabilities designed to help even novice users quickly and easily produce great-looking and consumable reports you can trust.

Big Data is not a new problem. Companies have always stored large amounts of data—structured like databases, unstructured like documents—in multiple repositories across the enterprise. The most important aspect of big data is not how big it is, or where it should be stored, or how it should be accessed. It’s the efficacy of business intelligence tools to plumb its depths for patterns and trends, to derive insight from it that will give companies competitive advantage in an increasingly challenging business climate. Visualization allows companies to analyze big data in real-time across a variety of sources in order to make better business decisions.
This new research — based on data collected in May 2013 from 29 organizations using visual data discovery and 95 that were not — reinforces those findings. In addition, Aberdeen's research demonstrates that visual data discovery can help to usher in a different approach to analytics, an approach that is far more user driven.
