Data Visualisation

I have been talking about analysis and all the ways in which it can been done. Read the data. Manipulate the data. Apply the statistical tools to the data. And Then finally analyse it. But what do you think is the most important things when most of the numerical processing has been done. Hmmm. Graphs! Charts! and all the Graphical Tools.

Yes. That is what I find the most interesting part. When finally all your  hard work in numbers come to live in the pictures. As it is said : Pictures speak more than the word. So, I am going to list most of the powerful visualisation tools that will take your data into the next heights. 










This looks very highly sophisticated visualisation tools totally based on the research. Its mainly a high-end analytics.















This is one of the most popular and great software, popular among the engineers. It has a great visualisation tools. Further, it is more than just a graphical tool. It embeds almost many engineering system designing issue like Control System, Signal Analysis etc.


SAS is one of the most powerful Statistical Analysis Tools having all the necessary mathematical tools and visualisation. Though too costly, its an asset for any analytics company. 


It is a great visualisation software. If you go through its presentation slide, it will low your mind, with how much you can do just by clicking.


Well, these are few among the many. Ya I know, my choices have been very biased. I have not listed from other sectors like GIS (Geographical Information System) , which is related to meteorological and other geographical related information. I also have not listed on Scientific Research based Information  for Signal Analysis, System Analysis etc.   

In my view, Data Visualisation is a field with very promising future. With so much of information available in the Internet, people are confused on how to make best use of it. In future we will see more innovation in this technology.

Good Ad Versus Bad Ad

At InRev, for past few days we have been working on our new project. The project is about collaborative blogging, from the blogger around the world. As Bhupendra and I have been blogging for long time, with his immense experience, our team has been working to revamp the globalthoughtzand create a new blogging experience. In this site, we are planning to add a section where people can add their advertisement. We thought lets start by our own :), with already so many products on the line, it was obvious.

So there goes an effort to create a small 128 px by 128 px logo. If you are a designer, you know that designing is a very time consuming process. For hours, you just test around with colors. Remember there are 256X 256X 256combination of colors!! Its hard job selecting one.
Lets start with F-Cube: In short F-cube is a Free Economic Reporting Site. Let me exhibit some Ad made for it and its pros and cons. (Please don't click on the image. Wait till the end. Thank You)

Selling a Comb to a Bald Person?

Here my friend, Ashay, put it very truly to me that the marketer's most challenge is to sell a comb to a bald. First, I am not trying to justify anything here. But I just couldn't help thinking how on earth am I going to sell a comb to a bald. How? Just how? I kept pondering upon it till late night. I actually had very few options with me, the first was obviously to use Google and Find? :)

But, I didn't do that. Some how I was still in confusion. Then just before going to sleep, I had an discussion with my other friend, on types of marketing on issues related to customer centric marketing. Hmm. Then some how it hit me. I went back to basic on my own philosophy, sell things that is needed. So here is a small anecdote I prepared :
Sale Person: Hello sir. How are you? Do you have a time, plzzz?
Bald Person: (Almost confused and in social causality) OK OK what is it? I don't have time.
Sale Person: Here sir, do you want to by a comb? 
Bald Person : Can't you see I am bald? …

Passion and Flying

There is an interesting aspect of flying which grasps everyone's imagination. The freedom and the control of moving around the space without any obstacle is just too much to ask for, in one man's life :). Isn't it?

As a young kid like everyone, flying was a dream. Not to mention the great stories of Leonardo Da Vinci and the Wrights brothers, who not only dreamt but also went on designing one, would inspire you to believe that some day in future it would be possible to fly like a bird. So let me tell you a short story about myself where I took myself to some limit into achieving this. :) I have been wanting to tell this for a long time but never found any occasion or reason to do so.
It was long ago when I was still in grade 3/4, should be around 1993. Space Channel was just installed in our house and I would spend time watching cartoons and other science programs. That was when I noticed gliders and parachutes. The shear simplicity of the design took me by surprise. Just…
