Jeffrey A. Shaffer will be facilitating this entertaining session focusing on transforming data into meaningful information. From fundamentals through advanced interactive visualizations, we will examine best practices and not-so-best practices for creating charts, graphs, reports, presentations, dashboards and scorecards using real-world examples. We will examine the power of "interactive visualizations", some tools used to build them and what you will need to know to get started.
