Session Summary for Attendees:  Data Visualization (DV) is the newest member of the Oracle BI family! Whether you are using OBIEE, are in the cloud with Oracle Analytic Cloud, or are on the Desktop, DV allows you to rapidly dig into your data and create visualizations from many sources. This freedom of self-service often presents new challenges. People who are new to DV are often confused by all the possible visualization options or they pick the wrong visualization. We will discuss the various visualization types, showing where and how they are best used to help tell the data story and drive deeper data discovery.
