Data Visualization: Making Sense of Big Data - Baseline

Data Visualization: Making Sense of Big Data - Baseline | Visualize: problem solving and innovation | Scoop.it

Baswlinw:  big data grows constantly bigger, IT organizations must come up with better ways to depict and make sense of it by using data visualization. We've come a long way from simple pie and bar charts, but the book The Visual Organization: Data Visualization, Big Data, and the Quest for Better Decisions (Wiley, March 2014) cautions that technology professionals and designers can stray too far in attempting to "dazzle the eye." It's always important, says author Phil Simon, to understand the users' needs and preferences, along with the ultimate business-focused purpose of the data. With these factors strategically aligned, there's no limit to the potential of data visualization. "An increasing number of organizations have realized that the variety, volume and velocity of information require not only new applications, but a new mindset," Simon says. "The most intelligent companies today understand the importance of data discovery and exploration—not merely conventional enterprise reporting. Interactive heat maps, tree maps and choropleths [thematic maps] promote true data discovery more than static graphs and pie charts." The following 10 best practices for IT pros are from the book. Simon is a tech strategy consultant, speaker and author of six IT management books. - See more at: http://www.baselinemag.com/analytics-big-data/slideshows/data-visualization-making-sense-of-big-data.html/#sthash.XTlLfh0J.dpuf

More fundamentally, Scalar is a semantic web authoring tool that brings a considered balance between standardization and structural flexibility to all kinds of material. It includes a built-in reading interface as well as an API that enables Scalar content to be used to drive custom-designed applications. If you’re dealing with small to moderate amounts of structured content and need a lightweight platform that encourages improvisation with your data model, Scalar may be the right solution for you."

As headlined on the home page, "Introducing Scalar. Born-digital, open source, media-rich scholarly publishing that’s as easy as blogging." This is a case where one should take the 4 or so minutes to watch the video overview that does a great job of describing the broad functionality of an intriguing, exciting platform. It is open, it uses standards, it supports multimedia, it can be non-linear, it is a great hypermedia tool. I look forward to learning more about this tool. It looks to be one that works more like I think than I have found recently.
