Featured Presentation:

KC SQL Server User Group - Overcoming Chartaphobia

Meagan Longoria

Do your organization’s reports consist mostly of giant tables of data? Perhaps you’ve gotten as far as adding KPI indicators to the tables. Although tables of data presented as reports are commonly found in many organizations, they might be doing you and your users a disservice. You should optimize your data visualization just as you optimize your databases. Reports are a user interface that must be purposefully designed to help users achieve their goal of making informed decisions. In this session we’ll review some data visualization best practices and apply those concepts to the use of Microsoft reporting tools such as Excel, Power View, and SQL Server Reporting Services. You’ll leave with guidance on how to take boring, unreadable tables of data and turn them into useful and visually appealing reports.
