Business decision making is undergoing a data-infused renaissance.
Organizations are tired of the limitations of spreadsheets and
dealing with long IT business intelligence (BI) development cycles
just to gain access to the data they need now. Fortunately, with
the advent of visual analytics and discovery tools (many offered
in the cloud), the journey to data insight is getting simpler and
faster. Rather than trying to divine meaning from a group of
predefined reports or simple static dashboards, visual analytics
helps users gain insights from data more quickly using intuitive data
visualization. Increasingly, visual analytics tools provide easy-touse
data preparation features for better data access. They support
collaboration, mashups, and storytelling.
TDWI Research sees growing interest in applying more modern,
up-to-date tools for working with data.
Despite being knowledgeable about their industry and experienced in running their organizations, the majority of business users lack expertise in analytics and visualization techniques—but that doesn't stop them from wanting to have a go. But making tools easier and more widely accessible is only part of the answer. A better approach is to work both sides of the gap. To make tools that can empower business users to discover and unlock value in their data—and that extend capabilities for experts, so they can share the analytics workload, improve efficiency, and focus on higher level work.
Ask the average business user what they know about Business Intelligence (BI)
and data analytics, and most will claim to understand the concepts. Few, however,
will profess to know how analytics works or to have the skills needed to put it
into practice. Despite being knowledgeable about their industry and experienced
in running their organizations, the majority of business users lack expertise in
analytics and visualization techniques—but that doesn’t stop them from wanting
to have a go.
This situation has led to ease of use and accessibility becoming the main focus
for recent updates from all the leading BI vendors—but making tools easier and
more widely accessible is only part of the answer.

A significant challenge for many organizations has been enabling their analysts to find the "unknown
unknown." Whether that unknown is malware lurking within the enterprise or within slight variations in
fraudulent transactions, the result has been the same: enterprises continue to fall victim to cybercrime.
IBM is addressing this challenge with IBM i2 Enterprise Insight Analysis. By pairing multi-dimensional
visual analysis capabilities with powerful analytics tools, IBM is giving the analyst team an effective
early-detection, cyberintelligence weapon for its arsenal.

Better health care at lower costs, for everyone – how do health care providers get there? Understanding the gaps in patient care, patient needs, and the geographic distribution of the patient population are important elements to consider when making decisions about improving the quality of care and reducing its costs.
To effectively analyze gaps in patient care, the data needs to be in a single place or system. However, in many organizations, data is spread across a myriad of spreadsheets and database systems. Data not organized for visual exploration and coherent analysis isn’t useful for decision making. Hence the need for visually appealing and scalable analytical tools to help organizations be more efficient, effective and economically successful.
The traditional managed reporting approach to BI is challenged to keep up with changing demand for business information. This research finds that providing business users with highly visual/interactive tools can help ensure they get what they need.

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.
Download K2’s new white paper, “Make the move from IBM Lotus Notes and optimize your business apps,” to see how the right business-application solution can make all the difference. You will also learn how the right business-application solution can help you quickly rebuild your applications to have greater flexibility and configurability than you had before.
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.
Self-service analytics implies that users design and develop their own reports and do their own data analysis with minimal support by IT. Most recently, due to the availability of tools, such as those from Qlik, Spotfire, and Tableau, self-service analytics has become immensely popular. Besides powerful analytical and visualization capabilities, they all support functionality for accessing and integrating data sources. With respect to this aspect of data integration four phases can be identified in the relatively short history of self-service analytics. This whitepaper describes these four phases in detail and shows how the tools Cisco Data Preparation (CDP) and Cisco Information Server (CIS) for data virtualization can strengthen and enrich the self-service data integration capabilities of tools for reporting and analytics.

In today's visual web, consumers are sharing brands’ images at record pace, taking content from brands' websites and saving it to visual social media like Pinterest, where relevancy trumps recency. This behavior significantly extends the life of products, creating engagement with images long after they've been sold out or removed from brands' (digital) shelves. In fact, nearly 50% of Pinterest's top pins send users to expired product pages, dead links and 404 pages. This is a major, major red flag...
