About Data Visualization

You can use Data Visualization to easily create visualizations and projects that reveal trends in your company’s data and help you answer questions and discover important insights about your business.

  • Creating visualizations and projects is easy in Data Visualization, because the application is designed so that your data analysis work is flexible and exploratory. Exploring data in Data Visualization is different than using pre-built analysis and dashboards, because they don’t allow you to experiment with your data by adding or removing columns, creating filters, or applying different visualizations to your data. Data Visualization helps you to understand your data from different perspectives and fully explore your data to find correlations, discover patterns, and see trends.

  • Data Visualization allows you to quickly upload data from a variety of sources (for example, spreadsheets, CSV files, Fusion Applications, and many databases) to your system and model it in a few easy steps. You can easily blend data sets together, too, so that you can analyze a larger set of data to reveal different patterns and information.

  • When you discover important trends in your data, you can capture that information by creating insights and stories that you can revisit later or share with other users. You can also export projects and applications for other users on different Oracle Data Visualization products (for example, you can export an application from Oracle Analytics Cloud and a Oracle Data Visualization Desktop user can import it). To try Oracle Data Visualization Desktop, see Download Data Visualization for Desktop.

  • Your instance of Data Visualization might contain the sample data sources and sample project. If you have the sample data sources and project, then you can use these to quickly familiarize yourself with Data Visualization’s functionality. For more samples, see The Oracle Analytics Library.
