What is data visualisation, and why is it important?

Data visualisation turns complex information into engaging and visual charts, helping us to easily understand, interpret, and even communicate results to others. And it isn't just important - it's essential to creating a successful company.

Six reasons why data visualisation is a workplace game-changer:

1. It removes complexity and confusion

While spotting trends and patterns in raw data is challenging, data visualisation makes it easy. Visually summarising data helps us understand the bigger picture and speeds up the decision-making process.

2. It improves understanding

We process visual interpretations of data much faster than raw facts and figures. Moreover, images can cross language and communication barriers, meaning we can communicate results with diverse audiences and encourage inclusive collaboration.

3. It enables emotive storytelling

Bring data to life and create compelling stories. Whether you're engaging stakeholders or connecting with customers, data visualisation makes it possible to create a meaningful connection and make data more memorable.

4. It gives you real-time insights

Give decision-makers instant access to crucial information. Tracking key metrics and performance indicators in real-time encourages faster decision-making when it's needed most.

5. It inspires curiosity

Interactive data visualisation puts the power in your hands. With engaging, responsive charts at your fingertips, you can dig into hidden trends and explore data in ways you never thought possible.

6. It helps you anticipate future data trends

Data visualisation helps data analysts in your company to recognise patterns in data. These insights make forecasting future trends and results possible, letting you predict an activity's outcome before you've even started.

The bottom line

While data visualisation might look like some charts and graphs on the surface, it's a powerful tool that helps you make sense of overwhelming data. It gives you the tools to make better-informed decisions, improve communication, and boost problem-solving in one go.
That’s why our latest Forms for Confluence update introduces data visualisation to your forms and surveys, so you can focus on the results that matter quicker.
