If you are working with massive amounts of data, one challenge
is how to display results of data exploration and analysis in a
way that is not overwhelming. You may need a new way to look
at the data one that collapses and condenses the results in an
intuitive fashion but still displays graphs and charts that decision
makers are accustomed to seeing. And, in todays on-the-go
society, you may also need to make the results available quickly via mobile devices, and provide users with the ability to easily explore data on their own in real time.

To mine raw data and extract crucial insights, business decisionâmakers need fast and comprehensive access to all the information stored across their enterprise, regardless of its format or location. Furthermore, that data must be organized, analyzed and visualized in ways that permit easy interpretation of market opportunities growth, shifts and trends and the businessâprocess changes required to address them. Gaining a true perspective on an organization’s customer base, market area or potential expansion can be a challenging task, because companies use so many relational databases, data warehouse technologies, mapping systems and ad hoc data repositories to gather and house information for a wide variety of specialized purposes.
To support open government initiatives and uphold the values of transparency, participation and collaboration in the US, federal agencies today make their data open, or publicly accessible. Citizens can use this open data to assess college affordability, the economy, educational issues, environmental damage, health care, taxes, agriculture, the climate and more. Governments can use APIs to pull this open data into SAS Visual Analytics as a way to identify trends and patterns and obtain all sorts of new insights. With public health surveillance, for example, governments can monitor and evaluate indicators that point to high-risk areas so theyll know where and how to focus efforts.
