Advanced Trends In Data Visualization

In order to best conceptualize and intuit business trends, leading/lagging indicators, progressional outliers and the like, business users need a pictorial representation and manifestation of rows and columns. While a picture may be worth a thousand words, in modern times it is worth potentially tens of thousands of rows. No matter how well an organization’s data has been integrated; no matter how high the quotient of data integrity may be; no matter how minimal the latency of tactical information, or all-encompassing its breadth of business knowledge, corporate performance management will have deficiencies if visual analysis capabilities are lacking.

In 2010, organizations will push their BI systems to improve decision-making and support business transformation. This will increase the need to better manage data and information assets. Data quality, governance and MDM will be critical. The market will strive to expand the use of BI and apply analytics to many more applications in a number of ways.

What is Hot in Business Intelligence for 2010 and Beyond

I continue to be very excited and encouraged by recent developments in enterprise business intelligence. Despite a recent global downtown in software sales, many BI dashboard vendors and solutions providers, both large and small, have aggressively accelerated their pace of innovation and service offerings. Over the last year, I was fortunate enough to meet with the leaders behind some of the more cutting-edge BI solutions and discuss in detail their company’s unique vision and value proposition for BI. What impressed me about these companies was not only the innovative quality and value (functionality/price) of their solutions portfolio, but the industry thought leadership that emanated from their senior management. The business intelligence industry continues to retain a brilliant knowledge-trust that is bent on breaking new ground in BI and transforming it for the better.

The Growing Trend Towards More Platform-Based Dashboard Solutions

Traditionally, dashboards were part of vendors' larger product lines and weren’t the major focus of their offering, which usually concentrated on data consolidation and analytics. However, as dashboards became more popular in the corporate community, BI companies started to offer more dashboard-centric solutions.
