How Are Data Visualization Standards Improving SAP BusinessObjects Design Studio and SAP Lumira?
SAP Analytics Blog, February 27, 2015
SAP understands the critical nature of data visualization and is seeking to work with thought leaders in this space to bring the benefits of best practices to our customers. This past month, SAP invited Dr. Jurgen Faisst, managing partner of the International Business Communications Standards association (IBCS®) to deliver an intensive two-day seminar. He shared insights on the benefits of establishing a set of rules for business communication design, and explained how they ultimately help our customers drive an information driven-culture.
Dr. Faisst’s kick-off to the seminar laid the foundation for visualization best practices. He stood at the front of the room, turned off the projector, and said, “We’re not talking about data visualization – we’re talking about the visualization of messages. Find the purpose and message behind what you’re doing, and then the chart and design should follow.”
