Data Visualization is the future

The idea of using pictures to understand data is not new, it has been around for centuries. However, with the advent of big data as a powerful tool for gathering new business insights, data visualization has gained a lot of importance. At our current pace, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day and without the right framework and tools to understand this data, it would be impossible to use the hidden wisdom in this data. It is data visualization that allows companies to use big data in a meaningful manner.
