Adding Value to Process Maps with Data Visualization and Add-ins

Presented by: Scott Helmers

Are your process maps just pictures of process flows? Or have you turned your process maps into the central repository for all process knowledge? In this session, you will get a quick tour of the Visio features that let you link diagrams to a live data source and then turn the diagram into an operational intelligence dashboard by visualizing data. You will also see examples of TaskMap� and other third-party add-ins that leverage the power of Visio so you can create content-rich process maps whose value exceeds that of a conventional flowchart by many degrees.
