Businesses today already know that visualization in business intelligence is an essential part of competitive success. Yet, too many organizations are falling behind because of the inability to keep up with demand for information. One mistake is thinking that self-serve data visualization is all they need when setting up a self-service BI environment.
Debunking the common myth, we will explore why data visualization IS NOT self-service BI. The only way for Information workers to become more self-sufficient is by having a BI environment that is more usable but also more consumable. It is these two themes—usability and consumability - that play crucial roles in a fully functioning self-service BI environment. Using modern IoT technologies, the modern business can expand access and consumability of data by engaging the human senses of sight, sound, and touch.
Join Lee Hermon, Sisense Engagement Manager, as he explores the limitations of current Self Service Visualization models and Adi Azaria, Sisense co-founder & Chief Evangelist as he introduces how IoT in Business Intelligence is changing the game.

Data exploration is the first step in data analysis and typically involves summarizing the main characteristics of a dataset. It is commonly conducted using visual analytics tools.
Before a formal data analysis can be conducted, the analyst must know how many cases are in the dataset, what variables are included, how many missing observations there are and what general hypotheses the data is likely to support. An initial exploration of the dataset helps answer these questions by familiarizing analysts about the data with which they are working.
Join Noam Engelberg as he walks you through the 5 best practices for Data Exploration in preparation for Data Modeling.

Aberdeen’s research shows that the answer to complexity is simplicity. User-friendly analytics pave the path from data collection and preparation through to analysis and final presentation. Easy-to-use tools empower users with intuitive interfaces and mitigate the need for coding and IT assistance. This webinar will examine findings on users with the right tools to prepare, analyze, and visualize complex data and also showcase the analytical practices of Best-in-Class organizations (the top 20% of performers).
Data environments are growing exponentially. Not only is there more data, but there are more data sources. At the same time, the value of unlocking that data and using it to make business decisions is also increasing.
For the business user, understanding this complex data and unlocking its potential is the key to staying ahead of the competition.
For IT organizations, complex data can be the bane of many business analytics programs, causing all kinds of trouble in data management and hindering system performance.
Size of data and number of disparate data sources are two key drivers of complexity. The bigger the data, the more effort needed to query and store it. The more data sources (data tables) the more effort that is needed to prepare the data for analysis.
The data complexity matrix describes data from both of these standpoints. Your data may be Simple, Diversified, Big, or Complex. When considering a Business Analytics program, different approaches are better suited for each data state.
