Have you ever wondered why Google Doodles are so famous and easily understood? For example, the google doodle for the Winter Solstice - just with a glance we know that the day marks the beginning of winter. The eye-catching animations, insights to the current and historic facts, and the short stories to begin a new day all highlight one major fact - the power of visualization. Visualization narrates a story more powerfully than an explanation in any language, and irrespective of education, technological background, culture, or age.
The same remains true for iPhones, an intuitive device that leverages icons, imagery, and apps to create a better user experience. Whether you are 3 years old or 80, people know how to click a photo or open the phone apps. For example, if you are cricket fan, one of the most famous sports in the Eastern part of the globe, the Cricket Scorekeeper app will display a progress chart of the game, showcase scores, match turning moments, the fall of wickets, etc. As a result, supporters quickly know of any game changers, and if their team was doing well.
With these two examples in mind, we know that visualization impacts users with simplicity and effectiveness. When we apply the same concept to data, the processed and organized information in computer science language, we can “show” or visually display stories of growth, cause and effect relationships, and much more!
Data visualization in corporate communications

Using data visualizations for internal decision making
It’s great to know results for a program, but the more important thing to be able to gleam insights from them to make better corporate decisions. When the information you care about is presented visually, you are given a snapshot of where you currently stand, and your growth potential. With data visualization, individuals from all around a company, can become more analytical without needing expert statistical skills. The visualized data allows us to comprehend vast amounts of information, that can be used in meetings, for quick decision making, and as a basis for improvements and new functionality in the future.
