The goal of this course is to educate participants about basic steps in data visualization. Because of the way how the human brain processes the information, the best impact and memorability of the information is achieved by using visual objects, instead of using exhausting reports, or extremely large tables.
Data visualization means usage of visual objects, like tables and charts, so that they can carry out the messages to the final users in a simple, clear and correct shape. The course will cover application, methods and the best practices for data visualization.
- IT managers
- Analysts (both business and technical analysts)
