Description: Learn the over-the-counter data standards for effective data delivery.
When a user looks at data that you provide them, does it deliver information clearly and meaningfully? Join this webcast with guest speaker, Jenny Grant Rankin, Ph.D. who developed the research behind over-the-counter data. Thanks to her research, we now know that unless your reports and dashboards adhere to a set of guidelines, your users may not trust or understand the data they are presented with.
