What is Data Visualization Software?

Data visualization software can help users to transform all of the data they generate through everyday business operations into actionable insights. These insights can be delivered in the form of graphical representations such as infographics or heat maps. The data used by data visualization solutions can be imported from a variety of sources, including uploads, databases, and other software solutions.

A core feature of data visualization software is the ability to create personalized dashboards that can track a business’ desired key performance indicators. These dashboards generally offer drag-and-drop functionality, enabling users to easily manage which data they would like to visualize regardless of their technical capabilities.

Furthermore, data visualization solutions can allow users to download or share their visualizations which makes collaborating with both internal and external parties a simple process. As such, data visualization solutions can be effective at delivering the illustrated data to, for example, executives or clients that do not have the time or ability to perform their own data analysis.
