What is DataV

Last Updated: Aug 21, 2018

Data visualization quickly allows you to gain valuable insight into the dynamic and massive data in today’s challenging business environment. Data visualization presents large amounts of data in a more clear and understandable way when compared with traditional charts and data dashboards. It helps you discover and diagnose business problems and opportunities by using interactive video walls.

Data visualization can be applied across many industries including retail, transportation, logistics, power generation, water conservancy, environmental protection, and many more. Data visualization has become an integral part of big data analytics.
