Visual Storyboarding: The Future of Useful and Intelligent Analytics

Even with all the hype surrounding business analytics and big data, many organizations struggle to create “useful and intelligent” analytics that deliver true business impact. Plagued by immutable data cultures that harbor silo-reporting practices, organizations must find innovative ways to re-engage their users and exploit data to stay ahead of competitors.

One of the most effective ways to foster innovation, remain competitive, and create a visual data culture is the use of storyboards to communicate knowledge and interpret experiences. Storyboarding is the future of Big Data analytics.

Join her to learn why and how companies like Shell, VISA/Mastercard, Nestle, Ericsson, and Kimberly Clark are using visual storyboarding to disrupt today’s data culture. She will discuss the scientific impact of storytelling and show you how it can drive user ownership, adoption, and deliver impact.
