Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity.
Henry David Thoreau
Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
Anonymous
Seek simplicity and distrust it.
Alfred North Whitehead

Perceptual Edge

We are overwhelmed by information, not because there is too much, but because we don't know how to tame it. Information lies stagnant in rapidly expanding pools as our ability to collect and warehouse it increases, but our ability to make sense of and communicate it remains inert, largely without notice.

Computers speed the process of information handling, but they don't tell us what the information means or how to communicate its meaning to decision makers. These skills are not intuitive; they rely largely on analysis and presentation skills that must be learned.

Perceptual Edge focuses on the tools and techniques of visual business intelligence to help you make better use of your valuable information assets.
