The goal of the thesis is to design and develop a Holistic History User Interface that enables the users i.e. Managers and HR Business Partners (HRBPs) to have a complete overview of employee's historical data items with a possibility to drill down on details. The UI aims to bring together employee's scattered history, humanize large volumes of records and make it more consumable for its users by introducing a new paradigm for visualization of employee's historical records.

Viewing historical data is one of the important aspects of information exploration and plays a vital role in many application areas. Financial applications such as portfolio management, accounting and banking constantly track their historical records to ensure that they are up to date and correct. In medical applications it is critical to track historical medical records to detect symptom trends and make sound decisions regarding patient's diagnosis. In the field of Human capital management (HCM), Managers, HRBPs and HR admins track employee's history to make either managerial decisions e.g. appraisals or to administer historical data changes in the past. With the current high-speed computer systems and high definition displays, an intuitive visualization of historical records will help users make more sense of the data, expose new insights and simplify explorations.
