There aren’t many opportunities for business analysts to share their expertise and learn from the best. Here’s one. Check out the 2006 Data Visualization Competition sponsored by the Business Intelligence Network. The data’s available in a Excel spreadsheet. To win, you need to find clear and complete ways of showing the data to solve real business problems. It’s very down-to-earth.
This is a chance to share your skills and improve the state of our profession. I think the winner gets, errr, a book, and glory, lots and lots of glorious glory. And adulation.
