Abstract

The intent of this research is to extend my current findings from my OURE research, Usability Framework of a Performance Dashboard: A Case Study. My first proposed task is to investigate influential factors in visualization of Big Data. Big Data is a term used to describe the current and expanding trend of large and complex data sets. My second proposed task is to compare these factors to the variables identified by my current OURE research, to derive a framework for data visualization modeling. These factors will be the main focus of my third task, which is to design and implement a prototype based on the framework developed in task 2. This prototype will be designed using large and complex data sets, known as big data. The next task is to implement a survey to analyze user data from the prototype. This will allow me to assess the framework developed in task 2. The final task is to perform statistical analysis and test hypotheses to derive a decision support framework.
