More and more every day, it’s a data-driven business world. Whether it’s to find the consumers most likely to buy a product right now, or to make sure an online experience is fast and flawless, data is the key to maximizing results. But digesting huge data troves and parsing the results into usable form is an ominous task at best. That’s where data visualization comes in.
Thanks to APIs, data from various sources can be pulled together and presented in whatever form it’s needed, whether it’s to correlate multiple data sources or to prepare a compelling management presentation. You can have Google Analytics next to Keynote Transaction Perspective next to Facebook Page Likes, or whatever data you need and are able to access via an API. One startup that’s targeting the need for data visualization is Leftronic, which is on a mission to make it simple to create impressive data dashboards.

When undertaking a considerable project such as adapting to mobile, testing is one area that cannot afford to be compromised.
However traditional testing practices can mean that projects can overrun on time as well as budget. By moving application testing for mobile, web and related back-end systems to a more cost- effective environment that is easy to use, testing phases are able to be completed much faster and more thoroughly without eating into mainframe power. These environments also lend themselves better to supporting test automation and performance testing needs.”
As Derek reinforced – the need to thoroughly test your mobile apps is critical and that doesn’t have to be expensive either. Automated testing can be done in many different ways and utilizing different formats for different stages of your testing. From functional testing to performance testing, ensuring that your customers experience the highest quality of app or website is contingent upon how well it’s developed, and tested.
