6 Beautiful Data Visualization Products and Open Source Libraries

Data visualization and data manipulation are highly sought-after skills. There are hundreds of Data visualization products currently available! End users have questions about data and using a data visualization product is the first step to answering those questions. Just a drop... Picking the right data visualization product is starting to come down to an exact science. What product do you need? What product should you buy? Can you use a programming language? Where do you invest your money? After you pick your data visualization tools, you also need to consider your end users! Building a user-friendly dashboard requires creativity, data transformation, a little science, a drop of design, and visual best practices.

Tableau Desktop 10.5 Update is Here!

Tableau Desktop 10.5 Update is here at last! One major note we notice is that 10.5 and above will require 64bit operating systems. Guess what?! Tableau Desktop 10.5 Update is packed with a bunch of cool new connectors, an improved data engine, updated extract API to support the new extract format, visualizations in tooltips, and much more. Here are a few notes from Tableau's site here. Be sure to upgrade and download the latest Tableau Desktop 10.5 update! Extracts use the new .hyper format Beginning with version 10.5, when you create an extract, it uses the new .hyper format.

Maybe MongoDB is easy. Maybe it’s easier than it appears, and doesn’t require a ton of programming, which opens it up to being used across millions of businesses that are currently stuck in the excel, CSV, workflows!
