We have established that Data Analytics is a critical part of data science and is responsible for future strategy formulation for any business or organization to extract true potential from their practices. Data Analytics can provide critical information for organizations to stake and strategize their businesses for extended growth. Previously, we discussed different big data use case scenarios and how solutions like DataWorks and MaxCompute work in-sync to provide business value for organizations.

In this article, we will discuss the significance of data visualization with data analytics using Alibaba Cloud DataV and how it can give organizations an edge.

Data Visualization | Introduction | Importance

Data visualization is the presentation of data in a visualized or graphical format. With Data Analytics, data visualization helps the business understand the analytics data and extract more value out of it. Interactive design patterns and visualizations are used to take additional steps forward with data analytics.


Visualizations provide stimulus to the human brain and can spark a better understanding of any concept. Data visualization, including charts, graphs, and 3D models to represent complex data extracted from big data analysis, can add more value to the overall practice of data analytics. Data visualization can incur better response and improvement over traditional ways of looking at data as text.

Alibaba Cloud DataV helps send requests to data sources dynamically. This enables seamless connection and on-demand data delivery.

Patterns and Trends

Different patterns in graphical data can emerge from the laid-out parameters to uncover relationships between the presented data. This enables organizations to focus on areas that need the most work.
