The Power of Actionable Data Visualizations

January 3, 2022

Enabling Insights at the Speed of Thought

"Aha!"  - That's the reaction you can get when a data visualization gives you immediate insights. 

Our brains value visuals over any other type of information.

Data visualizations leverage our brains’ powerful image processing capabilities and enable insights at the speed of thought, allowing you to expose patterns, trends and correlations that might otherwise go undetected.  - Tim Hart, Senior Data Analyst

It is simply easier to understand data when it is presented visually, compared with a table of numbers.  If you’ve ever stared at a massive spreadsheet and couldn’t see a trend, you know how much more effective a visualization can be. Moreover, while static visualizations like charts and maps have traditionally allowed a certain level of insight, adding interactivity with those visualizations lets people drill-down into details and interactively filter data to focus on the most actionable information. This is where data can truly be powerful and allow business leaders to make real-time business decisions - allowing them to act vs react.

In sum, data visualizations enable interpreting large quantities of data efficiently and are a powerful way to communicate data-driven insights.  At SRA, we have recently created a library of six interactive dashboards that are live right NOW for our Watchtower customers to help them better manage their risk management program.
