Companies and brands can use data visualization in interactive interfaces in web applications, software, or mobile apps and the visualizations can be executed in a variety of different ways.  These interfaces display data to viewers that can easily be read and understood. By doing this, it makes it easier to transform data into information because it is grouped in meaningful ways to recognize trends, patterns and correlations.

Dashboards have been using information design to communicate metrics since decades ago, designed to make analysis incredibly simple for the viewer. Visual data hubs have become more prevalent in the recent years, allowing users to explore the data in the interface.
