Data Visualisation Strategies to take Data Insights to the Next Level

All levels of government collect an increasing amount of data every day, with this data becoming a critical asset for insight led decision-making. However, these large, diverse data sets can be difficult to organise, manage and extract actionable insights from.

Naturally, the human brain is pre-programmed to respond faster to visual cues, and with the rise of big data in recent years, the important use of data visualisation as a tool to overcome this challenge has grown at a compounding rate.

By taking advantage of data visualisation, New Zealand government agencies stand to reap many transformative benefits including efficiency gains, greater decision-making insight increased security, and improved opportunity for innovation.

To help you on this journey we’ve created the complimentary ‘Data Visualisation & Dashboards’ virtual event, which brings together a broad group of public sector data experts to help you understand the opportunities of data visualisation and ensure you’re able to extract tangible insights from your data sets.
