Recommind: using pictures to gain an overview of complex data

Recommind continues to build a team of people able to write interesting and useful articles which go beyond the promotion of its products.

The latest recruit is Hal Marcus whom I met in San Francisco recently. His article Pictures have a superiority complex (eDiscovery and simplicity – part two) looks at the value of visual presentations of data as opposed to its presentation in the rows and columns of an Excel-style table format

The advantage, he says, is perspective – “you’re above the data, not buried in it, and can delve in and step back as desired” The ability of the visualisation to draw attention to peaks and gaps is an easy win for visualisation and something which can be easily missed in mere lists.
