This Week In Data - Data Visualization Best Practices

Written by Pragmatic Works | Sep 21, 2016

Welcome back to another episode of This Week In Data! If you missed our previous episodes, you can watch them here. In this week's episode, we're discussing some data visualization best practices.

Data visualization is a hot topic right now, particularly because of the capabilities of Power BI and the release of SSRS 2016 Mobile Reports. Your data is an important asset that is often haphazardly thrown on a report. Using data visualization practices is a bit of an art form that when done correctly can more effectively communicate your most important asset to your business. In this episode, Adam and Devin discuss how to get started in your design, how much information to include in your reports, and things you should avoid when building your reports. We'll give you a hint on what to avoid - say goodbye to pie charts.

Adam and Devin also discuss Thursday Night Football on Twitter, how Microsoft is currently beating Facebook and how the new game Bad Piggies is all about science. Learn more about these topics in our latest episode:
