Data Discovery and Visualization Software Overview

Data discovery and visualization tools like Tableau, QlikView and Tibco Spotfire are designed for data analysts and technically-oriented business users. The focus of these tools is not primarily reporting and monitoring, but rather ad-hoc analysis of multiple data sources. These tools provide data analysts with an intuitive way to sift through large volumes of data to expose patterns and outliers hidden in the data. They replace the traditional rows and columns of traditional data presentations with graphical pictures and charts.

These tools have been very successful, largely because of the low cost of implementation and because they do not require IT support. Ease of use is another key feature encouraging adoption. Visualization tools allow end users with some comfort level in data analysis to access multiple different data sources and display the results in visually compelling ways.

Data Visualization Features & Capabilities

  • Pre-built visualization formats (heatmaps, scatter plots, etc.)
  • Location analytics / geographic visualization
  • Predictive analytics
  • Support for machine-learning models
  • Pattern recognition and data mining
  • Integration with R or other statistical packages
