Tableau, JMP, Advizor, and Spot-fire - Visualization Tools

We are in a Bigdata world. Data presentation is very critical now a days. Data is generating from multiple sources.
What is data visualization?
Visualization tools have evolved so far that many people don’t realize the capabilities that exist. Tools like Tableau, JMP, Advizor, and Spot-fire help analytic professionals and business users move beyond graphics that simply illustrate a story that has already been developed. Visualization tools enable the analytic professional or business user to develop a new story in an interactive, visual paradigm.

Today’s visualization tools allow multiple tabs of graphs and charts to be linked to the underlying data. Even more important, the tabs, graphs, and charts can be linked to each other. If a user clicks on the bar for the Northeast region, all the other graphs will instantaneously adjust and show only Northeast data as well.

Major Trends in IT in 2015

As per research paper submitted by Gartner, the following trends will dominate in IT industry.

Advanced, Pervasive and Invisible Analytics: Analytics will take center stage as the volume of data generated by embedded systems increases and vast pools of structured and unstructured data inside and outside the enterprise are analyzed.  "Every app now needs to be an analytic app," said Mr. Cearley.

Analytics will become deeply, but invisibly embedded everywhere." Big data remains an important enabler for this trend but the focus needs to shift to thinking about big questions and big answers first and big data second — the value is in the answers, not the data.
Cloud/Client Computing: The convergence of cloud and mobile computing will continue to promote the gro…

SAS- Get the Right Training, Go get the Job

Many people think analytics is about gathering data using software tools and creating dashboards and reports. However, analytics is much more. Analytics goes beyond data; its primary goal is to enable business decisions based on that data. This involves working with stakeholders to understand the gaps in the business and using this knowledge as a guide to manipulate data, derive useful insights, and make recommendations – all key actions to increase revenue and lower costs.
Wherever you sit in your organization, what’s most important is the bottom line. And so whether you lead business or IT units or are in the trenches, the analytics profession has likely crossed your mind. What does it entail? Who are true analysts? How does one become an analyst?
Those of you specifically in a data management, data warehousing or business intelligence role may wonder how to further develop your analytics career. On the surface, an “analytics career” can be quite broadly defined, and the transition…
