Arguments for and against D3

  • There is a lot to consider when choosing to use D3 versus a Business Intelligence (BI) tool
  • Some of the biggest things are:
    • How important are the visualizations?
    • How fast do you need it done?
    • Is it Internal v External?

Use Cases

  • Use cases where D3 is a great fit:
    • Public data viz work
    • Embedding into a product
    • Real-time visualizations
  • Use cases where a BI tool is a great fit:
    • Public data viz work
    • Internal analytics platform
    • Need an answer fast
