Data Storytelling Powered by Conversational AI

We all love stories. Stories are powered by data and every dataset has a story waiting for a narration, done the right way.

Digital transformation and related technologies have helped us amass large volumes of data and the growing imperative is how to make sense of all this data. How to ask the right questions, visualize the response, and stitch them together into meaningful stories of information that help us in decision-making and taking action.

“The ability to take data—to be able to understand it, to process it, to extract value from it, to visualize it, to communicate it—that’s going to be a hugely important skill in the next decades” – Dr. Hal R Varian, Google Chief Economist

Data storytelling continues to be one of the top focus areas of many business leaders and it goes beyond picking the right visual methods. Storytelling with data is a structured approach that helps the communicator weave a narrative contextually and visually to communicate the insights.

Leverage the power of Conversational AI and our low-code platform to make sense of your data and more importantly, narrate a data story that aligns well with your questions and the problem at hand.
