But I’ll make an exception now – I predict that we’ll see even more success in BI initiatives in 2015 if organizations eliminate these “gotchas” from their practice. When it comes to commentary with valuable real-world insights, I can always count on the participants at my weekly #BIWisdom tweetchats on Fridays. I kicked off a recent discussion with this question to the group: “What are the top five worst practices in business intelligence?”

Closing Data's Last-Mile Gap: Visualizing For Impact!

Occam's Razor

Experiment with visualization options, even in Excel! Consider experimenting with different visuals in Excel ( or D3js ). Once you arrive at that conclusion, you’ll apply principle #4 and realize that the most interesting data on this slide is not the visual… Rather, it is the table on the top right corner of the slide. The visualization is getting in the way, creating a wider last-mile gap. There’s an even more important principle to learn from this visual….
