Scientific concepts have been presented via it and investigative journalists have been using it for centuries; Napolean’s troop losses during the 1812 invasion of Russia have even been illustrated via it – data visualisation.
Things have obviously evolved since the 1800’s but the fundamentals are the same. More and more organisations are using imagery and graphics to help bring data to life, presenting information in a clear and precise visual that plays to our natural capabilities.
Did you know?
Humans understand the world through pictures and patterns by computing thousands of pieces of information hourly through just the use of our eyes. We can spot anomalies quickly, make comparisons about age, size, weights, colours and brands every hour of every day and we are good at it.
Leading Business Discovery Platform
Qlik have recognised these inherent capabilities have proved invaluable in life and believe they should be guiding principles in the workplace that will change the way you work. Identifying, understanding and categorising are four natural visual human instincts, elevating Qlik to become today’s market leading Business Discovery platform. The software allows our right side of the brain (the visual side) to easily process information and forward to the left side (the analytical side) to analysis.
These instincts are:
- Pattern recognition
- Prediction from instinct
- Comparison capability
