The era of Big Data has arrived, and most organizations are woefully unprepared. Amidst all of the hype and confusion surrounding Big Data, a new type of enterprise is emerging: The Visual Organization. An increasing number of organizations have realized that today’s volume, variety, and velocity of data require new applications. More than technology, though, they have adopted a different mind-set—one based upon data discovery and exploration, not conventional enterprise "reporting." These companies understand that interactive heat maps and tree maps lend themselves to data discovery more than Microsoft Excel, static graphs, pie charts, and dashboards.
The Visual Organization is the sixth book by award-winning author, keynote speaker, and recognized technology expert Phil Simon. Simon demonstrates how a new breed of progressive enterprises has turned traditional data visualization on its head. In their place, they are embracing new, interactive, and more robust tools. And these tools help separate the signals from the noise that is Big Data. As a result, they are asking better questions and making better business decisions.
Rife with real-world examples and practical advice, The Visual Organization is a full-color tour-de-force. Simon deftly explains how organizations can do more than just survive the data deluge; they can thrive in it. His book is required reading for executives, professionals, and students interested in unleashing the power of data.
