I need to display a report on back end data. The report is basically the distribution of Vendors by devices on the network. I am using jquery datatables for my tabular data and google charts treemap for displaying the same in a tree map format. It looks at the moment something like this:

I'm using twitter bootstrap as my UI framework. Can somebody suggest a better design or any additional visualizations?

In order to come up with a better design we need to understand a little more about the tasks users will want to do on the display... what is it being used for? What are the key tasks? They are critical to identifying the right representation. –  Lisa Tweedie Aug 1 '12 at 11:00
    
@LisaTweedie - Basically this web page is a part of a reporting system, where users can take a look at stats. That is the only task that the users would use this web page for, see some stats. I thought it would be a good idea to display a visualization of data in addition to tabular form. –  devcoder Aug 1 '12 at 15:06
    
'distribution of vendors by devices'. Can you explain this a bit more? Are these 'vendors' suppliers from which you purchase these device types? –  drawtheweb Aug 1 '12 at 15:26

the wording of this question can only be interpreted as "can you suggest some cool looking stuff for my dashboard?" For that let Stephen Few (perceptualedge.com/examples.php) be your guide –  ted.strauss Aug 1 '12 at 17:16
    
@drawtheweb - Basically it's a list of network device manufacturers. So vendors like Cisco, HP etc. –  devcoder Aug 1 '12 at 18:07
