We live in a world with enormous amount of data presented to us and with the advancement of technology and research, we process more information and are empowered to make data-informed decision about many things in our lives. For example, we can get suggestions on the movies we are more likely to enjoy, be reminded by things we have to buy when we enter a grocery store and even avoid traffic congestions and receive fastest route getting from point a to b.

Data Visualization has played a critical role on our ability to consume large sets of data. Even though commonly used chart types such as bar charts and line charts have been effective ways to present data, leading publishers and companies have been exploring better ways to tell stories using data by leveraging the latest technology and research.

Pega has been developing this project because we think building these complex data visualizations is very code-dependent and time-consuming. With tens of thousands of application developers and partners, we needed a flexible yet highly maintainable approach to produce and deploy these visualizations. Writing javascript which has been a primary method to develop these visualizations is not scalable and painful to maintain and troubleshoot. Visual programming method allows Pega to control fundamental building blocks and core architecture while enabling application developers to create data visualizations to meet demand and specifications of many enterprises.
