SharePoint Roundtables:

Data Visualization in SharePoint

Data Visualization in SharePoint is the ability to use appropriate tools to cultivate and present data in an interactive and compelling visual representation by way of dashboard, report or chart.  Although a number of data visualization tools are available, many organizations continue to struggle with making the best decisions regarding which tools to leverage and how data should be displayed.  Common challenges include the proliferation of different screen types and sizes, the rapid pace of change in Microsoft’s Business Intelligence arena, and the abundance of excess data.

In this roundtable we will provide insight into the SharePoint and Microsoft BI stack and clarification on the data visualization options available.  We will cover Power BI, Power Pivot, Datazen, and out-of-the-box solutions to name a few.  We will also conduct a visual analysis demo on a mobile device and show rapid results with no code solutions.

By the end of this session you will walk away with:

  • A clear understanding of the most recent data visualization tools available from Microsoft
  • A firm grasp on how to establish appropriate criteria and select the right tool for your organization’s needs
  • Clarification on how specific tools engage data that resides outside of SharePoint
  • Knowledge gleaned from having witnessed the formation of a mobile responsive dashboard that you could prototype the very next day!
