Visualizations of quantitative data typically just consists of displaying multiple line, bar, and pie charts in a dashboard leaving the viewer to aggregate and correlate the data in order to synthesize a meaningful story. The effects can vary from somewhat informative to disastrously misleading. The industry is mislead by products with standardized interfaces that aim to present performance information effectively through visualization but often miss the mark due to lack of domain expertise and creativity. This presentation show how much more powerful quantitative visual data can be with the application of domain expertise. The presentation will kick off with a review of Edward Tufte's analysis of the Challenger space shuttle disaster and move onto typical industry monitoring challenges such as displaying system load, analyzing the efficiency of database requests and monitoring latency response.
