Data Visualization / 47 min

Data visualization and analysis is the broad topic of this module. It begins with the highly interactive scheduler for specific visualization scenarios. Gauges are simple controls that show individual or small numbers of business values, while charts display graphical diagrams of value sequences. Finally, the pivot grid is a cross table data analysis solution for the most complex cases.
