Abstract:

Visualizations are designed to provide complex information in a method that users can readily understand. Knowing how and where to position visualizations will help people assimilate the information better, but that can be tricky. Effective design requires a lot more than just knowing how to model data or put some graphs on a dashboard, and there are techniques you can learn to improve your visualizations. In this session you will learn design principals to improve your reports and demo how to implement this knowledge by fixing a report. You won’t want to miss this session to learn how to make your reports shine.
