Data has never been a more critical part of our digital ecosystem. What started as a trend is now a strategic foundation in understanding how users interact with everything around them–from news and trends, to products and services. There’s currently a wealth of data pouring in from multiple touch points and a variety of tools that help analyze and dissect raw data. But with the market suddenly saturated, it can be difficult to know what data is useful, and how to communicate it in an informative and engaging way.
