Today's complex business challenges are not two-dimensional. They don't show clearly with just pie or bar charts. Rather, they call for truly dynamic, interactive visualizations. That's okay these days because the entire visualization market is opening up, and quite dramatically. It's open-source meets crowd-source meets enterprise caliber software.

Register for this episode of the Briefing Room to hear venerable Analyst John O'Brien as he explains how the visualization industry is undergoing a full-fledged Renaissance. He'll be briefed by Jason Goodyear of Actuate, who will tout their array of data visualization options, including a new marketplace that features an ever-growing library of unique models.
