This white paper describes an energy audit tool which can lead to significant decreases in the costs of running a data center. Thermal Zone Mapping (TZM) is a visualization tool developed to present in graphical format high level thermal metrics developed by HP and targeted for use as part of the HP Data Center Thermal Assessment service. This tool uses data generated from computer models of the data center and generates metrics, which are then post-processed and visualized in the three-dimensional data center space.

To mine raw data and extract crucial insights, business decision‐makers 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 business‐process 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.
As analytics and Big Data have been embraced, analysts are working to become better at communicating the insights from complex analysis. This makes the use of visual analytics increasingly important as a tool to tell compelling stories and to engage decision makers in dialogue. Importantly, the best visual analytics are not necessarily the coolest, most sophisticated, or most complex. Visual analytics are most effective when there is a clear purpose and when data can be visualized and communicated in a way that is easily understandable.
