What good is data if you can’t see it, can’t identify patterns, trends, outliers and changes over time?
Enhance and maximize your data analysis capabilities by using visual analytics, powered by Exasol.
In today’s Information Age, data is gathered at an increasingly faster rate and can, at times, overwhelm our ability to analyze it. Visual analytics makes data visible. Exploring your data in a visual way through charts helps you identify patterns, trends and outliers more easily than looking at a large table of numbers.
While traditional approaches to data analysis relied heavily on spreadsheets, macros and static charts, modern analytical tools enable users to explore their data interactively and with advanced visualization capabilities. Organizations of all sizes and from all industries are embracing this new approach to data analysis in an effort to become truly data-driven.
Exasol’s visual analytics hub gives you, ideas, and examples, interactive live demos, access to hosted data sets, and extensive written, video and audio content to help you with your data analysis challenges. Whether you want to address storage issues or performance problems, educate your users or inspire them to break out of their comfort zone, you will find resources here to help you make the most of your data as well as the talent and skill in your organization.

Improving the way we visualize and analyze data – one chart at a time
#MakeoverMonday offers inspiration and a giant dose of perspective for those who communicate data. Originally a small project in the data visualization community, #MakeoverMonday features a weekly chart or graph and a dataset that community members reimagine in order to make it more effective.
The results have been astounding; hundreds of people have contributed thousands of makeovers, perfectly illustrating the highly variable nature of data visualization. Different takes on the same data show a wide variation of theme, focus, content, and design, with side-by-side comparisons throwing more- and less-effective techniques into sharp relief.
Makeover Monday, the social data project, is run by Exasol’s Head of BI and Tableau Zen Master, Eva Murray, and the Data School’s Head Coach and Tableau Zen Master, Andy Kriebel. Exasol with its hosted public data sets has featured a number of times as a data source, to give participants the opportunity to work with very large datasets and a live connection in the visualization tool of their choice.
If you are interested in improving your analysis and visualization skills with fresh weekly data sets and want to learn from an enthusiastic community of data people, you can find all the information at www.makeovermonday.co.uk.
If you want to join the other participants and build visualizations on top of Exasol, it’s easy to get started with our public hosted data sets.
