In a recent blog post we discussed pie charts and how you can show data points or percentages in an IBM Planning Analytics Workspace (PAW) pie chart. We also have an IBM Planning Analytics Tips & Tricks video that shows how easy it is to display percentage points in a pie chart.
As we explained, pie charts are one of the most common types of data visualizations. A pie chart is defined as a component report, which means that it is design to show part-to whole relationships. This approach makes it easy to get a general sense of how much each piece of the pie contributes to the total.
Watch this video to see Lee Lazarow, Revelwood’s FP&A Technology Director, demonstrate how to:
- Turn your data into a pie chart
- Enable your chart to display percentages
- Go into more detail in the data behind the pie chart.
Changing the settings on your PAW pie charts gives you the ability to define the appearance and readability in your charts.
