The Language of Discovery: A Grammar for Designing Big Data Interactions

The oncoming tidal wave of Big Data, with its rapidly evolving ecosystem of multi-channel information saturated environments and services, brings profound challenges and opportunities for the design of effective user experiences.

Looking deeper than the celebratory rhetoric of information quantity, at its core, Big Data makes possible unprecedented awareness and insight into every sphere of life; from business and politics, to the environment, arts and society. In this coming Age of Insight, 'discovery' is not only the purview of specialized Data Scientists who create exotic visualizations of massive data sets, it is a fundamental category of human activity that is essential to everyday interactions between people, resources, and environments.

To provide architects and designers with an effective starting point for creating satisfying and relevant user experiences that rely on discovery interactions, this session presents a simple analytical and generative toolkit for understanding how people conduct the broad range of discovery activities necessary in the information-permeated world.

Specifically, this session will present:
• A simple, research-derived language for describing discovery needs and activities that spans domains, environments, media, and personas
• Observed and reusable patterns of discovery activities in individual and collaborative settings
• Examples of the architecture of successful discovery experiences at small and large scales
• A vocabulary and perspective for discovery as a critical individual and organizational capability
• Leading edge examples from the rapidly emerging space of applied discovery
• Design futures and concepts exploring the possible evolution paths of discovery interactions

Because now wereally do have essentially free and ubiquitous data. So thecomplimentary scarce factor is the ability to understandthat data and extract value from it.”Hal Varianhttp://www.mckinseyquarterly.com/Hal_Varian_on_how_the_Web_challenges_managers_2286

    24. 24. “What we found are the constants that describe every city,” he says. I don’t know anything about this city or even where it is or its history, but I can tell you all about it.

    105. 105. Role / Persona Scenarios & Goals • Create and update accurate forecasts on a weekly basis at a very detailed level, such as the number of packs of each product SKU needed for a single store. Forecasts evolve through several iterations before reaching their final state, allowing and requiring Planners to incorporate data on sales, inventory, customer activity, etc. as it accumulates in real Planner / Analyst time. • Improve the accuracy of forecasts and forecasting methods by understanding the nature, degree, and source of forecasting errors in reference to a large number of defined metrics and performance measures • Analyze and understand changes in the factors affecting forecast accuracy, and enhance forecasting methods to reflect these changes • Monitor and review the accuracy of Planners’ forecasts to assess individual and team performance • Determine the specific metrics and performance measurements that Planning teams use Planning Manager for reference, based on the long-term goals of the organization. • Evaluate and improve the effectiveness of forecasting practices and tools used by planning teams • Achieve 100% forecast accuracy • Maintain forecast accuracy over time, and in all situations. Planning Team
    106. 106. Role / Persona Modes & Mode Chains Planners needing to create new forecasts based on previous forecasts and newly identified causal factors will follow the Comparison-driven Synthesis chain (Analyze-Compare-Synthesize): this involves analyzing their previous forecasts and comparing them to accuracy baselines and the expected impact of known causal and correlating factors such as seasonal events or weather, then creating (synthesizing) new forecasts that Planner / Analyst reflect insights realized from these activities. Comparative Analyze Compare Synthesize Synthesis Planners working to improve forecasting accuracy will follow the Strategic Insight chain (Analyze – Comprehend – Evaluate), when they review previous forecasts to understand their accuracy and identify possible sources of error: analyzing cumulative and historical accuracy and error rates to understand the factors affecting those forecasts, then evaluating the relevance and usefulness of newly identified causal factors by retrospectively including them in previous forecasts. Strategic Analyze Comprehend Evaluate Insight Planning Managers will follow the Strategic Oversight chain (Monitor – Analyze – Evaluate) when assessing the performance of Planners: monitoring the accuracy of forecasts made by individual analysts and the team, analyzing forecasts for patterns and trends in variance and accuracy, and evaluating the effectiveness of analysts, and forecasting methods. Planning Manager Strategic Monitor Analyze Evaluate Oversight
    107. 107. Role / Persona Chains & Sequences Planners will follow the Strategic Oversight chain for visibility into the status of their published final forecasts vs. actual activity in the supply chain; when errors or variances beyond an acceptable threshold emerge in one or more forecasts, they will switch to the Strategic Insight chain in order to understand the new situation; they will move on to the Comparison-driven Synthesis chain to revise their forecasts to reflect their newly generated insights and improved understanding; they will then switch back to Strategic Planner / Analyst Oversight to maintain ongoing awareness of the accuracy and effectiveness of their revised forecasts over time. Strategic Strategic Comparison-driven Strategic Oversight Insight Synthesis Oversight Planning Managers seeking to improve the forecasting practices and methods of their teams will employ a sequences of mode chains that begins with Exploration-driven Search, to identify exemplars of particularly strong or weak forecasts and forecasting practices; they will move to Strategic Insight to understand how and why these practices exhibit strength or weakness; Comparison-driven Synthesis will help Managers Planning Manager formulate new or improved measurements and forecasting practices; and they will rely on Strategic Oversight to gauge the effectiveness of new or enhanced practices once in effect.

    109. 109. Dashboard Screen TypeThe Dashboard screen is designed primarily to enable theStrategic Oversight (Monitor-Analyze-Evaluate) chain, bypresenting an overview of the major areas of supply chainactivity. Individual Planners use the Dashboard to Monitorthe accuracy of their own forecasts compared withestablished baselines and targets. Planning Managers usethe Dashboard screen to Monitor the accuracy of all theforecasts made by the Planning team.One pane enables monitoring of each major area of supplychain activity, such as Inventory or Capacity, providingsummaries of the status of processes via KPIs andmeasurements using a component from our library, as wellas a chart presenting historical values of these measures forAnalysis via visualization component.A list of alerts provides a guide to notable changes acrossthe supply chain, allowing Planners and Managers tomonitor, analyze, and evaluate notable events and changesas part of a steady flow of information.The Dashboard enables Planners and Managers to executethe Strategic Oversight chain by following the linked datapoints in charts, metrics and alerts ‘deeper’ into theinformation for analysis.

    110. 110. Trends Screen TypePlanning teams use the Trends screen to explore and understand thestate of the supply chain, and the accuracy of their forecasts over time.For this purpose, the Trends screen is primarily designed to support theExploration-driven Search (Explore-Analyze-Evaluate) andComparison-driven Synthesis (Analyze-Compare-Synthesize) chains,in which Planners and Managers seek to identify new patterns in timeand supply chain activity and suggest potential causal factors.The value of the Trends screen is best understood in the context ofsequences of mode chains, such as Strategic Oversight in companionwith Comparison-driven Synthesis or Exploration Driven Search incompanion to Strategic Insight.

    111. 111. Analysis Screen TypeThe Summary and Analysis screen is designed to support the StrategicInsight (Analyze-Comprehend-Evaluate), and Comparison-drivenSynthesis (Analyze-Compare-Synthesize) mode chains. Each Analysisscreen in the template is focused on one sub-function of the supply chain.This Analysis screen focuses on the forecasts and activity for ‘restocking’of products in retail settings and various stages of the supply chain.On the left side, the Search, Breadcrumb, and Faceted Navigationcomponents allow the user to manage the data that is presented in thetables, charts, and lists to the right, by exploring the underlying informationspace. They also communicate this context to users to keep them oriented.At the top of the screen there is a ‘metric summary’, which follows on fromthe performance indicators identified on the Dashboard, providing visibilityinto the smaller scale measures that determine the status of the supplychain; specifically, the accuracy of forecasts.Below the summary, a group of components presents a visualization anddata grid of a single metric grouped by one or more variables (e.g. quantityby product type) to enable analysis. These ‘metric breakouts’ helpPlanners and Managers comprehend the factors contributing to the statusof each metric. This combination facilitates a wider range of analysismethods than either presentation method supports alone.At the bottom of the template, tables provide lists of the individualtransactions for detailed analysis and evaluation.
