Approximately 65 percent of people are visual learners. That includes students in a classroom, shoppers in a supermarket, and leaders in your company’s boardroom.
The traditional work environment of a data analyst is full of text-heavy reporting and digital results. If you have a group of high performers who are succeeding with these tools, just imagine how much more powerful their insights could be with detailed, visual reports. It’s a question many companies are starting to ask.
Hidden Meaning Revealed with Beautiful Science
One of the best examples of the innate beauty of data is the London Folio Society Gallery’s display Beautiful Science: Picturing Data, Inspiring Insight. This display turns numbers into pictures to tell important stories about how visualizing scientific data offers new understanding about our lives.
These visual displays provide insights into events, from cholera infections in 1854 to contemporary public health crises, where data can reveal hidden meaning and change lives for the better. It is only by reorganizing and restructuring this data that scientists can glean this insight.
Visualization Creates Better Understanding
More visually appealing data can help employees inside and outside the CTO’s office understand data more deeply and more quickly. And in a company where speed and efficiency are highly valued, these visualizations can help your business flourish.
And you have nothing to lose. Looking at a problem from a different angle or in a different light can often lead to different insights, making it easier for your company to solve problems. Data visualization is a quick way to unlock this insight for visual learners.
