Businesses today collect a tremendous amount of data and this is only going to increase in the coming few years. It has become pivotal for businesses to make sense of the data on an on-going basis through interactive data visualizations. Data visualization expert Stephen Few says, “Numbers have an important story to tell. They rely on you to give them a clear and convincing voice. Any insight worth sharing is probably best shared as a data story.”
Xaltius hosted its first workshop on Data Storytelling which took participants through the story of how to work with data and tell a story around it such that business insights could be derived and be made more explainable.
The workshop engaged participants in a hands-on session with data wrangling, data manipulation and data visualization using real retail data. Data visualization was done on Tableau wherein the participants were exposed to the fundamentals of Tableau including measures, dimensions, calculated fields among many others.
The participants enjoyed the hands-on tremendously and created some wonderful visualizations.
