Happy Data Innovation Day

Posted: January 24, 2013 by Dave Fowler


Today is the first annual data innovation day, which was started by the The Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) to “raise awareness about the benefits and opportunities that come from increased use of information by individuals and the public and private sector.”

At Chartio that’s what we do every day, but we’re excited to participate with the many other partner organizations in highlighting this day and educating people on the industry.

There are many innovations happening in the data community. Many are focusing on handling and processing the increasing amounts of data being collected. At Chartio, we focus on the visualization, consumption and usability of data.

The future is increasingly data driven. Just as computers and the internet have worked their way into a more efficient and effective workplace, data and quantitative feedback and decision making are becoming an everyday part of the modern worker’s life.

We feel that the largest bottleneck in that revolution is the lack of simplicity and usability in the tools used to visualize, query and filter through the data. We think we’re on the right track with our interface, and are happy that other people think so too.

With that, after publishing this post and in honor of data innovation day, I’m going to take the rest of the day to dig deeper into our data analytics and create an even better model of our business metrics, sales pipeline, and product usage. I encourage others to take today to evaluate the way they use data and I invite you to try Chartio.
