The Importance of Data Visualization in Business

This article is contributed by JSCharting.

The Importance of Data Visualization in Business

Business meeting with Data Visualization Tools

The internet has grown immensely in the last decade and growth continues to accelerate. This growth means that the amount of data present on the web has also grown to an enormous size. This data can be used to the benefit of many businesses in understanding market trends, customer behaviors and the growth or decline of a product. According to a recent report on global data management, 95% of the organizations in the US use their data sets and big data to understand their market and develop business strategies. There are a number of ways how big data can help drive business intelligence in this data focused world.

Ease the Understanding of Information

A picture is worth a thousand words. Or, in this case, a picture is worth many thousands of data entries. A data visualization tool as simple as a pie chart can help you visualize the data that would otherwise consume a massive data source such as a grid or table. Data visualization helps people understand and absorb information quickly, by making them look at the bigger picture instead of thousands of pieces of a puzzle. By looking at this bigger picture, people can easily correlate and understand the relationships between business conditions and bring them into focus. In short, data analysis and data visualization help you connect the dots in your business and your data.
For example, this simple pie chart sums up the data about the population of the entire world and classifies it based on the region. This includes data from 195 countries and 7 continents summed up in a simple, small chart.



Easily Convey your Message

These days with huge amounts of information flowing to people, it has become more difficult for businesses to grab the attention of their audience. If they manage to do so, it is almost impossible to hold it for longer than a minute until they lose their attention again. With such short attention spans, it is important to convey your message quickly and effectively. Data visualization helps you share your data and insights quickly without losing the interest of your audience. The dashboard of a fitness band application is a perfect example of this; it packs different aspects of data into amazing graphics and gives the user a clear idea of his fitness progress at a glance.

Today


Reduce the Need for IT Geeks

Only a short time ago, when data visualization was not as popular as today, understanding big data was very difficult. Most organizations that wanted to reap the benefits of big data had to hire IT specialists. These IT specialists or data scientists would harvest the data from the web and work to understand the patterns. The problem with these IT specialists was that they did not know what to do with data or from what perspective to look at those trends in the big data. Nowadays data visualization software has made it easier for insight managers and non-technical people to understand complex data in real-time. Business users can now easily develop insights according to the information available and use it to the benefit of their organizations with self-service reporting that doesn't require data scientists to configure.

Recognize the Outliers

Data visualization helps you recognize the outliers in your data. Seeing a drop in sales and being able to jump on and address that quickly can meaningfully impact your bottom line. Conversely, seeing a jump in sales and being able to maximize opportunities for your business as they happen can have a long term positive result. By avoiding negative impacts and expanding positive ones, paying attention to outliers in your data with business analytics can maximize your business returns and enhance data-driven decisions.

Strategize

One of the main reasons behind the popularity of big data and data visualization is that it helps pull back the veil on business data and reveal important market trends. It provides them insight into what a customer likes in their product and also enabled them to learn some of the negative aspects of their products. In short data visualization helps businesses develop better strategies to improve their performance and decision making. Intelligence tools processing real-time data yield actionable insights and facilitate data exploration. Regardless of the large amounts of data in your organization, data analytics combined with interactive visualizations in your analytics platform helps key decision makers strategize and make informed decisions to drive your products forward!

Take Action

The last but most important step in understanding your data is taking action according to your understanding. Data visualization has helped us at every step in business. From understanding the data to presenting it to the audience, and building strategies. In the last step data visualization helps you review your strategies, implement them and evaluate them from time to time using bespoke solutions or prebuilt BI tools, it's never been easier to perform in-depth data discovery for your business. And if any issues are found, data visualization helps you identify them and take action quickly to get better results.

First Job Interview in 20 Years? Here's how to Nail It!

First Job Interview in 20 Years? Here's how to Nail It!

First Job Interview in 20 Years? Here's how to Nail It !

We welcome John Tarnoff as our guest author.

John Tarnoff
John Tarnoff is a reinvention career coach, speaker and author who helps his fellow baby boomers transition to meaningful and sustainable careers beyond traditional retirement. Fired 39% of the time in his colorful career as a L.A.-based film producer, studio executive and tech entrepreneur, he currently co-runs a graduate management program for a top university. In 2012, he developed the Boomer Reinvention® coaching program to help his generation stay active, engaged, relevant – and solvent. He is the author of Boomer Reinvention: How to Create your Dream Career Over 50

Many of us in the boomer generation are confronting a situation we never thought we would be dealing with: launching a second-act career in our 50s or 60s. Yet that is exactly what many of us are doing — bravely ripping up our old resumes and rewriting our life stories so that we can sync up with a world that has changed radically since we were last "on the market."

Here are some suggestions to consider if you are heading into what are likely your first job interviews in 10 or more years. I don't think it matters where you're applying — whether it is for a job in your industry or if you're striking out in a new direction, interviews are interviews. They're scary, intimidating, and your professional future hangs in the hands of your interviewer.
Own It 
A wise teacher used to tell me to be 100% engaged and enthusiastic about what I was doing, but to be 100% detached from the outcome. Win or lose, as important and maybe even life-saving as getting this gig may be, it is ultimately out of your control. You can only be the best person you can be. The only way you're going to get this job is if you don't hold back on revealing that great person. That doesn't mean you sell too hard or tell interviewers repeatedly why you're the exact right person for the job; it just means that you're you. If you're having a hard time finding your confidence and your equanimity, think back to a time in your life when things were really humming on all cylinders. Remember that feeling and bring it with you to the interview.
Show What You Stand For
Today, experience, sad to say, is not as valued as it once was. In a world that's changing so fast, with businesses and industries getting disrupted out of existence, experience may not help you overcome a completely out-of-left-field challenge. You have to be curious, adaptable, resourceful and persistent. In short, you need to be driven by values and qualities of character. This is what a recruiter will be looking for. As an older worker, if you can be quietly inspiring, downplaying your own accomplishments while praising your colleagues, and talking about your life and work experience as a gift rather than as a badge, you may just win them over.
Don't Let "Hiring Mom And Dad" Perceptions Define You
Yes, that's a real expression in the back rooms of millennial-heavy businesses and departments. Your interviewer will most likely be younger than you are. When older workers present themselves, there's a good chance that ageism will rear its head. My advice: Ignore it. Not every younger person you meet is going to be dismissive, but be on the lookout for some awkwardness or discomfort. Rather than clam up, shut down or reveal just how infuriating this really is, be smart and strategic. Show (don't tell) that you have no issue with younger people. Remember:
1) You're not there to teach them a lesson.
2) You're not there to tell them war stories about how things were when you were their age.
3) You're not there to impress them with how much you've learned and grown over the years.
4) You're there to be of service and to support their mission and their goals.
Interview Them
You should be interviewing them as much as they are interviewing you. Don't do this from an arrogant position. Don't sit back in your chair, cross your arms, frown or take out your list of questions so that you can take control of the interview. Be curious. Do your homework. Lean forward. Ask perceptive questions to show that you not only understand the job, but understand the company and the culture. Use your questions as a way to reveal why you could indeed be the right fit for this job. Don't be afraid to get into a real conversation.
Be Transparent
Be willing to reveal things that you could feel a little uncomfortable about. Don't hedge your way out of questions like: "Why did you leave your last position?" or "How long have you been looking for a job?" Your discomfort is a sure sign that you aren't right for the position. Spend time prepping for these questions, and find answers that are authentic and show that you are willing to overcome challenges and learn from past experiences. This is a great opportunity to inject some self-deprecating humor into the conversation — and to maybe make a joke at your own expense. A little vulnerability can go a long way toward creating empathy and respect for what you've been through.
It's Not The Job, It's The Fit
At the end of the day, your interview has about 10% to do with your resume and about 90% to do with "fit." Does the interviewer think you're someone whom everyone else is going to enjoy coming to work with in the morning? As organizations and hierarchies have flattened out because of technology, there is more power in what used to be thought of as middle management. Hiring and firing is more team-driven than ever, so don't be surprised if it takes a half dozen rounds of interviews to trot you around to all the stakeholders you could be working with. If they don't "get" you, if there's no "click," then do you really want to be working at a company that doesn't understand and appreciate you for who you are?
Follow-Up Never Gets Old
While so much has changed in the hiring process, the fundamentals still apply. Remember to thank your interviewer by email immediately after your interview. And, just like in the old days, send them a handwritten thank you note the same day. I advise clients to actually have the note card in their pocket or bag all ready to go, with a stamp already on the envelope. I don't care how old or how young they are, your interviewer will be impressed with your follow-up. It may not get you the job, but it demonstrates your thoughtfulness and your character.
Remember that if you don't get the job but have still made a strong impression, you've just expanded your network. That young recruiter may turn out to be your biggest new fan and may have just forwarded your resume to a friend of theirs at another company where there's an opening.
Tomorrow is another day.

Improving Customer Experience (CX) with Data Visualization (DV)

Improving Customer Experience (CX) with Data Visualisation (DV)


Customer service departments of big companies engage with thousands of customers every day. 
Each interaction holds importance and the company  can use it for their benefit. But the 
increasing number of these interactions means it is impossible to look at each one of them individually or to understand the individual customer journey. That is where Data visualization 
comes in.

It can help customer-facing teams to improve their customer experience and point out the areas for improvement by using data analytics, and machine learning on customer data.Marketing managers, sales representatives, and customer service professionals need to process a rapid flow of information to decrease the waiting time for every customer. It can also help them understand what customers need during these interactions. Organizations that use data visualization and business intelligence can obtain critical information 78% of the time, within the decision window, an improvement of 22% over organizations who don't use these tools!

We are going to discuss a few ways in which data visualization can help organizations do better 
when it comes to customer experience and overall customer satisfaction.

Customer-Interactivity


Only a few years ago, customer service was based on static texts and automated one dimensional encounters. Today, visualization of big data has taken customer experience between a company and its client to a whole new level of interactivity.

Businesses are using different visualization techniques that promote interactivity with their customers. One example of that is application (app) dashboards or live sessions that are operating in real time. 

They keep getting updates as the customers make any changes to any of the contributing factors. 
This helps them make a quick and better decision on how they want to do certain tasks which leads to a better customer experience.

Investment centers, credit facilities and banks have added different data visualization techniques to help customers analyze their expenses. This could be in the form of a pie chart or trending graphs to differentiate between their spending and saving allocations. 

The concept is based on reaping the full benefits of the data present in a customer’s financial statements and creating a customer centric design that meets their needs.

Analyzing Product Performance

Data visualization has played an important role in bringing the customer experience to a level higher than it used to be. Organizations have switched to visuals to promote their products by using a very user-centric design. Data visualization can help analyze the performance of a product or service.
It can also help us address any issues with the product as reported by a customer. Data visualization makes it easier to recognise the customer behaviour trends about specific products or services. These data points give actionable insights so that we can change our business practices according to the choice of our customer.

Understand Data Consumption Objectives

With enough data present about the interactions with customers, data visualization tools can help customer service professionals understand and answer what data does a user need to access? 

When and Why?

What is the smallest amount of data that will help answer the user’s question? These are some of the questions that data visualization answers.

Creating a Mobile First Design

An interesting application of data visualization is integration of dashboards in a website. A number of businesses and industries are following this trend of showing their stats using a dashboard on their websites based on customer feedback and demand. 
Dashboards have also given rise to using mobile first approach when designing a website or an app. The Mobile First technique is exactly as it sounds, designing an app or a website design for the smallest screen and then moving your way up to tablets, laptops and desktops. It is a good technique to create a responsive and adaptive design for an app or a website. With very small screens, it is hard to present the customer with their extensive but important data that is where data visualization comes in. It helps show important information which would otherwise fit a whole web page into small responsive figures which can easily fit on a small display of a mobile phone.
Customer analytics shows that mobile first leads to greater customer engagement and longer visits.

Identify Customers with recurring issues

Another goal of a designing a better customer experience is to identify customers who are experiencing recurring issues. It is done in order to separate them from the rest of the customer interactions.

Teams can attach unique codes to these individuals to keep track of their issues throughout their interaction with the company. Data visualization can help identify this data from other normal interactions and can help make it easier to communicate these customers individually and  let them know the status of their problem.

Visualization can also help later use this data to solve other recurring problems which enhances customer retention. Data Visualization is gradually becoming an integral part of company operations
as means to understand big data. Nowhere is it more needed than in dealing with customer service complaints. This data has to be available in real time and analytics tools help to ensure that high priority customers don't get missed.

This enables customer service professionals to handle their interactions with customers in a better way, reducing response times, and providing more transparent communications.

Conclusion


Customer experience is key to modern business and Data visualization is a critical component to deliver consistent customer experiences. From the customers own interactions with charts, that enable quick actions, to employees and agents tools managing those customers in the most efficient way possible, many aspects of one's business can be improved through leveraging these tools.
