Welcome to the Data Jungle! In this brand-new company blog, we will explore the insightful, creative and often entertaining world of data visualization and storytelling. While my other personal blog Beautiful Data is focused more on the developers perspective and features many hands-on tutorials using tools like R, Python and Hadoop for data analysis, this blog is all about business applications for data science and visualization in research, media and marketing.
You’ll encounter one or two infographics on this blog as well as practical advice on how to leverage Big Data and Data Science for your business objectives. Of course, we’re always open for suggestions for topics to cover in this blog, so please feel free to contact us with your ideas.
A short remark on lions and their natural environment: Ok, strictly speaking, lions do not live in the jungle. But then again, we really like the metaphor. If you’re working with data and especially Big Data on a daily basis, it really feels like a jungle sometimes. And creative data visualization often can help find a way through the jungle and literally help see the forest (i.e. the big picture). On the other hand, data visualization often means data storytelling. And the story of the lion king sleeping in the mighty jungle definitely is a great story.
