One of the easiest ways to discern important relationships in data is through advanced analysis and easy-to-understand visualizations. This paper discusses some basic issues of data visualization and provides suggestions for addressing them with SAS® Visual Analytics.

A picture is worth a thousand words – especially when you are trying to understand and discover insights from data. Visuals are especially helpful when you’re trying to find relationships among hundreds or thousands of variables to determine their relative importance – or if they are important at all.

SAS® Visual Analytics enables a broad range of business users to prepare, visually explore and find valuable insights in data without coding or the need for data science skills. Intelligent autocharting creates the best possible visual based on the data that is selected. These data visualizations highlight relevant findings without requiring users to build or write algorithms.
