As the era of information continues to thrive, we seek more and more insight into what this massive volume of data being produced is trying to tell us. What is it saying about our business processes, our business in general, even our lives? Do we see recurring patterns, habits? Are the results of these habits positive or negative, or maybe we can’t tell? We refer to these "patterns" that emerge from this exploration into our data as "Data Stories." Over the next few blog posts we'll explore the key structural components in creating your own data story, as well as delve into some technical tips using Cognos Analytics which help in the telling.
