The novel War and Peace has 587,287 words. If you randomly strung those words together, you wouldn’t end up with one of the best novels of all time. You’d end up with lots of words with little value.
Your data works the same way.
On its own, your data repositories are merely a collection of random bits of information. It’s of limited value unless you find a way to allow your data to tell its story.
You don’t need a Russian novelist to write that story, you need a data visualization specialist who knows how to put your data to work for your federal agency so you can turn scattered information into shareable and clear business insights.
Got data? Now what? You need data visualization to transform it into understandable, useful information.
Federal agencies have lots of data, but can’t always leverage the hidden insights lying within. When it comes to data, more isn’t necessarily better. You may already have experienced the disadvantages of having lots of data if your staff doesn’t have the time or expertise to dig into and make sense of it.
However, with data visualization, you can unleash your data’s potential and make it accessible to anyone. Data visualization is a game changer for federal agencies because it transforms the way you work.
You can uncover and display complex patterns and trends lying within your data, and show how these trends relate to your organization’s goals. You can finally realize the value of the data you have, data you’re given, and data you’re collecting from different sources.
Data visualization in action for the federal government
Our federal government clients are awash in data, and our data visualization specialists regularly help them bring it to life and improve the decision-making processes.
In one case, we worked with a senior Department of Defense official who wanted to see what was happening in a specific region of the world so they could present that information to the executive branch. Giving them pages and pages of raw data wasn’t an option—information overload like that wouldn’t drive the necessary decisions.
Instead, we gave them a map similar to the one below illustrating the information the data represented.
DoD and executive branch leaders were able to quickly see the picture, get clear answers to their questions, and make a quick decision.
Another client with multiple projects in one region was trying to figure out where all the projects were located and how they related to each other. They wanted to know where they might be duplicating services and where they should strengthen their efforts.
Seeing this data in a spreadsheet didn’t give them the answers they needed. However, data visualizations allowed them to grasp the situation. Maps, charts, and graphs provided new insights. Their data was finally working for them by answering their questions and helping them address critical issues by allocating resources more effectively.
Unleash the superpower of data visualization with a specialist’s unique skill set.
Data visualization is a specialized skill, one not often found in government employees. Data visualization specialists are GIS experts who use complex tools like Tableau, Adobe Creative Cloud, and ESRI to turn indecipherable spreadsheets into interactive maps, infographics, charts, and other comprehensible reports.
These data visualization skills are even more rare—and valuable—when you combine them with area expertise. At Tesla Government, members of our data visualization team have worked on government projects all over the world. Their experience gives them the insight needed to understand your team’s goals and help you transform data into useful information.
