Analysing your data with power view

Published on

Come learn about the best ways to present data to your Business Intelligence data consumers, and see how to apply these principles in Power View, Microsoft's data visualization tool. Using demos, we will investigate Power View based on current cognitive research around data visualization principles from such experts as Stephen Few, Edware Tufte, and others. We will then examine how data can be analyzed with Power View and look at where Power View is supplemented by other parts of the Microsoft BI stack.

  • Analysing your data with power view

    1. 1. Analysing your Data with Power View
    2. 2. Data Visualisation and Power View We have the tools. All we’ve got to do is imagine what could be. We can reinvent the present; we can transform the world around us. Jason Silva
    3. 3. Computers have promised us a fountain of wisdom but delivered a flood of data (Frawley, 1992)
    4. 4. • Almost 50% of your brain is dedicated to visual processing. • David van Essen Researchers found that colour visuals increase the willingness to read by 80% About 70% of your sensory receptors are in your eyes.
    5. 5. Data Visualisation and Power View • 3D • Pie Charts • Colours
    6. 6. Data Visualisation and Power View • Power View does not contain 3D functionality – why? • People can overestimate the vertical dimension (Wansink, 2003) • 3D space makes it too difficult to compare – Values – Volumes – Areas • Distorts
    7. 7. Pie Charts and Power View – – – – We find it difficult to read angles We find it difficult to judge areas We can’t easily read over 5 slices very well Each part must be mutually exclusive
    8. 8. Pie Charts – the Verdict! • You can compare combinations of adjacent wedges • The parts should make a sensible whole • You’re just expecting the image to answer one ‘business question’ only • You do not need trendlines
    9. 9. Pie Charts
    10. 10. Pie Charts
    11. 11. Pie Charts
    12. 12. Pie Charts
    13. 13. Pie Charts
    14. 14. Trellis Charts
    15. 15. Trellis Charts
    16. 16. Self-Service Insights Actions
    17. 17. Different Tools for Different Jobs Power View • Highly Visual Design Experience • Power View is an interactive, ad hoc, query and visualization experience. It is for business question ‘mystery’ solving • Power Map • Power Map is a new 3D visualization add-in for Excel helping you to analyse geographical and temporal data – Mapping – Exploring – Interacting
    18. 18. Data where you want it
    19. 19. Data where you want it
    20. 20. Data where you want it
    21. 21. Data where you want it
    22. 22. Motion Charts • • • • • This makes even more of the limited space We can pack more information in Data / Ink Ratio Motion is a pre-attentive attribute Dependent on other items e.g. chartjunk
