Introducing Trends 2021 - "The great digital switch"

Many companies do them, and you will see them scattered everywhere. Our ambition around trends is different though. We want to contextualize and embed trends into a broader theme, capturing the zeitgeist. That way the strands become interwoven into a fabric, showing a structural pattern and hopefully also indicating where we are heading.

Waterfall Chart

It’s time, again, to look at a chart that you might not be using, but that you definitively should consider using when doing data visualization. The waterfall chart is great at visualizing the cumulative effect from positive and negative changes, as, for example, you would see in a Profit and Loss (P&L) report.

How We Teach The Leaders of Tomorrow To Be Curious, Ask Questions and Not Be Afraid To Fail Fast To Learn Fast

The data age has been marked by numerous “hype cycles.” First, we heard how Big Data, Data Science, Machine Learning (ML) and Advanced Analytics would have the honor to be the technologies that would cure cancer, end world hunger and solve the world’s biggest challenges.

Qlik vs. Power BI - Free Doesn't Mean Freedom for Your Data or Users

Every professional has used Microsoft products in their work life. The ubiquity of Microsoft Office in the enterprise is one of the main reasons many analytics users are familiar with Power BI, given how the company bundles its business intelligence software with other licenses in the same way Excel and PowerPoint comes with Office.

What Data and Analytics Will Look Like in the Post-COVID World

COVID-19 has radically altered most aspects of our social worlds and the way we do business. One of the largest impacts to organizations has gone on mostly unseen to the outside world. Companies have been quickly altering the way they manage the keys to their data kingdoms to maximize their data’s value to survive and compete.

Advanced Analytics Will Need To Look Different

We missed it, again. But, could we have seen it, even with advancements in data analytics? Many people have referred to COVID-19 as an unexpected black swan event, after Nassim Taleb's famous book, which I’m rereadinging as I write this post.

The Cost of Out-of-date Data

Timely, accurate and trusted data has never been more important than it is now during this pandemic. Since late summer, many areas across the UK have had more stringent restrictions imposed to reflect the growing number of cases. Similarly, Test and Trace uses information on who we’ve been in contact with to provide guidance for when we should self-isolate, which in turn helps us personally manage the risk to those around us.
