Data Visualization Deep-Dive using SQL Server 2012

Jen Stirrup

Director, Copper Blue Consulting


If you want to conduct advanced, business-oriented Business Intelligence analysis in SQL Server 2012, then it is essential to understand data visualisation. This session is aimed at developers who want to make informed data visualisation decisions about reporting, with supporting cognitive psychology theory where relevant.

The takeaways will focus on:

  • Introduction: Finding patterns in the data.
  • Further Data Visualisations: learn about visualisations that are perhaps not so well-known. This includes Stephen Few's bullet charts and Tufte's Sparklines in SSRS.
  • Multivariate data: We will cover the complexities of displaying multivariate data since is potentially more complex by visualisations. For example, we will look at Tufte's "small multiples" in Power View and in Reporting Services.
  • Putting it all together: Considerations for Dashboards with PerformancePoint This workshop aims to deliver a breadth of data visualisation knowledge, underpinned by cognitive psychology theory to provide deeper understanding.
