Data visualization is often where people realize the real value in underlying data. Good data visualization tools are therefore vital for many data projects to reach their full potential.

Many companies have realized this and are looking for the best solutions to address their data visualization needs. There is plenty of tools to choose from, but even for relatively simple charting, many have found themselves with limited options. As the requirements pile up, options become limited: Cross-browser compatibility, server-side rendering, iOS support, interactivity, full control of branding, look and feel … and you’ll find yourself compromising, or – worse yet – building your own visualization library!

Building our data publishing platform – DataMarket.com – we’ve certainly been faced with the aforementioned challenges. In this session we’ll share our findings and approach for others to avoid our mistakes and learn from our – sometimes hard – lessons learned.

We’ll also share what we see the future of online data visualization holding: the technologies we’re betting on and how things will become easier, visualizations more effective, code easier to maintain and applications more user friendly as these technologies mature and develop.
