I wrote a new blog entry talking about the maturity scale of visual analytics. The visualization maturity scale can be used to explain a number of issues in the visual analytics space. For example, why aren’t companies leveraging visualization to analyze their data? What are the requirements to implement visual analytics services? Or why don’t we have more visual analytics products?
Unfortunately, we do no have mature visual analytics products yet that really encompass all of the steps in the maturity scale to deliver a great experience to the end user.
Also check out the Maturity Scale for Log Management and Analysis to have a closer look at how log analysis and management play into the visual analytics process.
