What is big data visualization?
Big data visualization is a common technique used to convert and communicate complex, abstract and large data volumes into visual representations of the data. Charts, graphs and plots are just some of the ways a business user can view the data. By viewing data in these visual forms any non-technical user can get a deeper understanding of the data before the analysis begins.
The challenge business users face with big data visualization
Businesses and organizations in the modern world have to transform large volumes of data in all shapes and sizes in order to gain valuable insights and to help inform critical business decisions. Preparing data for big data visualization can be a daunting and time consuming task. Many refer to the process of data preparation as janitorial work and in some cases data preparation can take up to 80% of the time allocated for data analysis. In most cases, the business user has to rely on valuable IT resources and allow for potentially long lead times to get access to data for analysis. Trifacta can help reduce the need for IT resources to prepare your data. Trifacta helps by putting the big data visualization process in the hands of the business user who needs the data most.
