Data Visualization: Then and Now (2020)
This last weekend I had an honor joining others and presenting at SAP Online Track — a grass-roots SAP Community event hosted entirely online. Big kudos to organizers, volunteers, moderators (like https://people.sap.com/thomas.schoerner helping with my session), sponsors, presenters, and participants ?
My very first presentation on any SAP Inside Track was at sitNL in 2012, where I presented the topic of Data Visualization. I haven’t presented it too often since then, but I kept collecting more information and content and enhancing/rebuilding my slides.
Finally, I had a chance to present the content collected over the years. And thanks to SAP Online Track I can share ? the video recording with you.
Unfortunately, my MacBook (Pro!) had issues rendering video frames live and the slides are messy at the beginning and at the end of the recording. But you can find most of these slides at the SpeakerDeck.
To save you time…
…here are some links shared in the slides.
- The Data Visualization Handbook from SAP Analytics Cloud team,
- SAP Analytics Cloud at IBCS and example videos from Ingo Hilgefort,
- A sample use case with Exploratory Data Analysis using
hana_mland the companion blog post by Andreas Forster.
Bonus: more recordings from SOT…
… I would recommend watching if you are into Data and Analytics.

Update: I had the chance to re-record my session. It's much shorter now (same content, though) and features a lot less "emm"s and "err"s...
The link to the video now is [SOT213] If your SQL reads like Assembler you're doing it all wrong.
Thanks a lot for the shoutout and kudos to your own session.
I very much enjoyed your overview of the history of data viz and how this connects with what is done today with computer tools.
Thanks for the update, Lars. I corrected the link in the post too.
Thank you Witalij, it was a pleasure working with you and learning more about Data Visualization 😀
I'm looking forward to hear/see what you are doing with DataViz! Maybe some blog post to begin with?
Really good and useful info about chart picking and visual perception
