Exceptional tools for information visualization are becoming more widely used to gain competitive advantages, but the best is yet to come. The next generation of interactive tools will enable communities of users to make successful business decisions even more rapidly. Advances to look for include:

1) systematic strategies for discovery that incorporate the increasingly powerful statistical tools and data mining methods, while accommodating missing and uncertain data.
2) increasingly diverse data types such as time series, patient histories, maps, and social networks, so users can handle a wider array of problems.
3) tighter integration into organizational workflows that amplify individual creativity with the catalytic benefits of social creativity.

These ambitious aspirations are already motivating researchers and inspiring developers. This webcast tours current efforts and proposes grand challenges.
