With the increased availability of data, the ability to communicate data effectively is becoming a sought-after skill. Effective data storytelling starts with questions: Which data to pick? What data not to pick? How to visualize it? How to keep it performant? Also, most importantly how to retain the corporate brand?
During this full day PreCon, we will review ways to determine what data to pick and how to present the data optimally and beautifully to diverse business users like Analysts, stakeholder and Execs.
We will achieve it by exploring some of the psychology around how humans perceive data by looking into the gestalt principles of perception and how we can apply these principles in data visualization best practices. We will also look at how to use corporate color schemes and principles and how to template these for reuse between the teams.
By the end of the session attendees will get an understanding of the following:
- Different types of visualizations available in Power BI
