What is Data visualization- Basics

Nowadays we are flooded with data of diverse kinds due to the increasing computational capability and accessibility. Specifically, in addition to public data available on the Internet (e.g., census, demographics, environmental data), data pertaining personal daily activities are now more easily collected, for example, through mobile devices that can log people's running distances and time or their manual record of nutrition consumption.

Due to such expanded sources of data, there appear new applications that involve data collection, visualization, exploration, and distribution in daily contexts. These applications do not only display static information but also let users navigate the data in forms of interactive visualizations.

This emerging trend has brought both opportunities and challenges to interaction designers to develop new approaches to designing data-based applications.

Conveying information has been one of main functions of graphic and communication design since the analog printing era. The focus of information design is the communicative and aesthetic presentation of structured data as in an example of subway route map.

In treating the increasing volumes of unprocessed data accessible either from public media or personal devices, the approaches of information design are now more diverse with the influence of other disciplines (Pousman & Stasko, 2007). Specifically, unlike information design in a traditional and confined manner, data visualization starts with the data that did not proceed through structuring and exist often in large volumes and complicated formats (Manovich, 2010).

Thus, data visualization requires designers to obtain diverse knowledge and skill sets in addition to their visual aesthetic senses. The new requirements include human visual perception and cognition, statistics, and computational data mining.

Moreover, as data visualization has been more broadly applied to end-user services, interaction and experiential qualities need to be more critically considered. Those qualities of data application do not only rely on the usability of data perception or task-based navigation but also build up on aesthetics that affords engaging and exploratory data navigation. The latter have been remained as a less investigated area than the former due to the strong disciplinary tradition of data visualization in computer science and cognitive science.

Furthermore, visualizations are presented, used, and shared in diverse contexts from science labs to online journalism sites, to personal mobile devices. This means that data visualization has become a truly interdisciplinary field of research and practice by weaving informatics, programming, graphic design, and even media art

Three popular RPA tools functional differences

Robotic process automation is growing area and many IT developers across the board started up-skill in this popular area. I have written this post for the benefit of Software developers who are interested in RPA also called Robotic Process Automation.

In my previous post, I have described that total 12 tools are available in the market. Out of those 3 tools are most popular. Those are Automation anywhere, BluePrism and Uipath. Many programmers asked what are the differences between these tools. I have given differences of all these three RPA tools.

BluePrismBlue Prism has taken a simple concept, replicating user activity on the desktop, and made it enterprise strength. The technology is scalable, secure, resilient, and flexible and is supported by a comprehensive methodology, operational framework and provided as packaged software.The technology is developed and deployed within a “corridor of IT governance” and has sophisticated error handling and process modelling capabilities to ensu…

Robotic RPA Software developer skills you need

Robotic process automation is an upcoming and becoming most popular skill. As I said there are three popular tools. To become proficient in any one of the tool is really good to get a job in Developer role.
To get a job in this line, I found in my research that some programming skills and Hand-on training on any one of the tools is required. Also, try to to know differences in other popular rpa tools.

Most people are asking experience in tools like Automation anywhare, Blue Prism and Uipath. But, you cannot be proficient in all. So just know what are the differences. Ok...
You may ask a question like how to know. First join one good coaching institute and learn one tool perfectly. And start taking online training. Really good for you. Whatever you are lacking quickly you can learn online way.

To learn Uipath try here. Also, you can learn Automation anywhere tool online way.

The following are the list of IT skills commonly asking:
