Comparing the Quality of Business Decisions Supported by Alternative Visualisation Platforms

Fernando Beltran (University of Auckland, New Zealand)

Aroaro is a mixed-reality, multi-user platform, which can be deployed on different virtual reality and augmented reality devices. In Aroaro, users can experience data visualisation. This paper presents our proposed approach to network data visualisation in a business context, which assumes a business unit is tasked with problems that need to reveal information found in a network data set. Aroaro provides users with a novel way to visualise the network in a mixed-reality immersive environment while helping decision-makers retrieve the analytics toolbox that supports their tasks. We report on experimentation with subjects who participated in lab sessions to qualitatively compare aspects of their decisions performed on two visualisation platforms. Our objective at this stage is to infer how and when our immersive, virtual reality visualisation tool turns out to be superior to alternative 2D flat-screen visualisation facilities.
