The Briefing Room with Cindi Howson and Tableau Software

Slides from the Live Webcast on Aug. 7, 2012

The best insights provide little value if they don't result in action. That's where the power of sight comes into play. With the help of effective visual aids, business professionals from all walks of life can demonstrate what needs to be done, and generate the support they need for valuable initiatives. But you shouldn't need to be a graphic designer in order to tell a compelling visual story.

Check out this episode of The Briefing Room to learn from veteran Analyst Cindi Howson of BIScorecard.com, who will explain how data visualization can play a critical role for generating business value from analytics. She'll be briefed by Brett Sheppard of Tableau Software who will show how even non-technical professionals can discover meaningful patterns in their data, then design and share visualizations to communicate insights. He'll also demonstrate how Tableau can connect to any kind of data sources, including spreadsheets, databases, cubes and even Big Data.
