3 Business Wisdoms Explained by Data Visualization

1. “There are costs and risks to a program of action, but they are far less than the long range risks and costs of comfortable inaction.” – John F. Kennedy

3 Business 1liar with this concept – using data to organize, plan ahead and weigh options – but only when data is clear and definable.

 Without a way to visualize, keeping track of such patterns can lead to a state of inertia. What does this number have to do with my fiscal projections for the next five years? What do all of these 4’s mean? Why did I even calculate that? We’ve all been there. Data works as a powerful yet specific tool that requires nurtured configuration – and yes, many decisions. And for a lot of us, there are already too many decisions to make in the day-to-day.

Visart is a solid way to extract quick insights. And with the right software (hint, hint), you can even find a user-friendly interface that guides the entire process. That way you can leave the small tasks (e.g. determining which column should be on the x-axis) to us, so you can focus on deciting the next steps in your program of action.

2.  “Every man or woman is a potential poet or artist. Everyone has the capacity to bring to their work the dignity, purposefulness, and presence of the artist.”- Laurence G. Boldt

3 Business 2Data visualization is at the intersection of science, math and art – and inspiration can strike at a whim. Many of us grew up stifling our creativity in fear that it was not a practical enough to pursue. Or perhaps you were encouraged to explore your creative talents and a are looking for a empirical evidence to back up your creations.

Our software brings to life seemingly lifeless numbers. We believe numbers are the life force behind everything! So why not make them beautiful? Visart holds a heavy focus on art so individuals can feel emotionally connected to the historical records they wish to illustrate.

Using our software, you can turn insensible spreadsheets into beautiful dashboards with customizable objects and share them with others. You can even collect and export your dashboard’s elements for external use. So the next time you find yourself inspired by the day-to-day, ask: does life imitate art, or do data illustrate life?

 3. “There is no security in life, only opportunity.” – Mark Twain 

3 Business 3There are two types of people in life – those who seize opportunity, and those who watch. Which one are you? Life is about taking risks not playing it safe. Just as Kennedy said, inaction is far more costly in the long run.

Whether or not your data is consistent, the world is an ever changing landscape. We must constantly adapt to the economy, policy and market needs in order to survive. Have you ever had that why didn’t I think of/do that feeling? You were likely onto something – an unnoticed insight, hidden in a spreadsheet, which held the kernel of truth.

We must be prepared in order to seize opportunity. And our data visualizations do just that. With intelligent and real-time analytics, Visart monitors your spreadsheet and tracks the data using compelling analytic graphics. Risk assured that when the next opportunity presents itself, you can be confident with intelligent metrics to ground your progress.
