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.
#The best Data Visualization Tools:
Visualization tools
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.

These new tools might be thought of as presentation and spreadsheet software “on steroids.” Not only do some visualization tools have the equivalent pivoting and data manipulation capabilities that a spreadsheet program might have, but they also have the charting and graphing capabilities that rival or exceed those of a presentation program. Now add the ability to connect to large databases, intertwine the visuals, and explore and drill down at will. It results in something powerful.

The whole premise of data visualization is that it’s very hard for humans to look at large tables or sets of numbers and identify trends. It’s far, far easier to see the trends with an appropriate visual. Some visualizations, like social network graphs, transmit information that would be almost impossible to understand or describe without a visualization.

Just imagine trying to effectively explain to someone how countries are arranged on a map without having the map itself as a guide. Once you see a map, you know exactly where those countries are and how they relate to each other. It would be a huge challenge to come up with even a very lengthy explanation that could even begin to get across the same amount of information and clarity as the visual of a map does.

Top 20 ultimate ETL Questions really good for interviews

How to print/display the first line of a file?  there are many ways to do this. However the easiest way to display the first line of a file is using the [head] command.  $> head -1 file. Txt no prize in guessing that if you specify [head -2] then it would print first 2 records of the file.  another way can be by using [sed] command. [sed] is a very powerful text editor which can be used for various text manipulation purposes like this.  $> sed '2,$ d' file. Txt how does the above command work?  The 'd' parameter basically tells [sed] to delete all the records from display from line 2 to last line of the file (last line is represented by $ symbol). Of course it does not actually delete those lines from the file, it just does not display those lines in standard output screen. So you only see the remaining line which is the 1st line.  how to print/display the last line of a file?  the easiest way is to use the [tail] command.  $> tail -1 file. Txt if you want to do it using…

The unique helpful SAN architecture simplified one

Storage Area Networks (SANs)

A SAN is connected behind the servers. SANs provide block-level access to shared data storage. Block level access refers to the specific blocks of data on a storage device as opposed to file level access. One file will contain several blocks. 

SANs provide high availability and robust business continuity for critical data environments. SANs are typically switched fabric architectures using Fibre Channel (FC) for connectivity. The term switched fabric refers to each storage unit being connected to each server via multiple SAN switches also called SAN directors which provide redundancy within the paths to the storage units. This provides additional paths for communications and eliminates one central switch as a single point of failure.Ethernet has many advantages similar to Fibre Channel for supporting SANs. Some of these include high speed, support of a switched fabric topology, widespread interoperability, and a large set of management tools. In a storage ne…
