This paper discusses collaboration using big data analytics and visualization. It tries to bring to fore the advantages of collaborative analysis using visualization tools. How information visualization can enhance effective collaborative decision making process. It reviewed applicable and related literatures and it put forward propositions about definition of key terms, their relationships and applications.
It hashed out the relationship between understanding big data through collaboration and understanding collaboration through big data (Anya et al., 2014). These are two different concepts but they achieve the same goal. The paper concluded by stating the goals of collaboration and the challenges currently facing big data collaborative analysis using visualization tools.
