Five Web-based Apps to help you visualize big data
Big Data is here to help you define, re-define, guide, or build a better, more flexible and powerful business. The limits are beyond the imagination when you have enough data collected. The problem is; what do you do with that data once it's collected? You have to have the means to visualize the data in order for it to aid your journey to success.
That doesn't mean you have to pay a huge cost for a piece of proprietary software you may use once or twice during the lifetime of your business. Fortunately, there are plenty of web-based applications that can display your data, in various fashions, so your company can benefit from the time spent in designing and collecting the data.
I have found five such applications. Each of them falls into a range of feature sets and complexity; but all of them will get you where you need to go. Let's take a look at these web-based apps and see which one will best fit your needs.Credit: Images by Jack Wallen for TechRepublic
