SAS® Visual Analytics Stories Are Data With a Soul

On-Demand • Cost: Complimentary

About the webinar

What does it mean to have a soul?

When something affects us deeply, we say it "touches my soul." Brené Brown delivered a TEDx (Ted Talks) presentation on “the power of vulnerability.”

One of her main themes of that presentation is that inspiration is not in delivering data. Rather, inspiration is in telling stories about the data and how it can help us lead better lives.

This webinar will address examples of generating emotion with your visualizations, analytics, reports and dashboards.

We will cover seven example areas that will enable you to tell the most impactful story with your data from an emotional persuasion point of view: examples of emotion toward dashboards; color selection; bias detection; sentiment analysis; time perception; animation, images and video; and call to action.

You will learn:

  • How to compare and contrast typical visualizations with those that might generate emotion.
  • How to make a human connection with your data within your organization.
  • A different way to think about and use SAS Visual Analytics.
