Visio Services in SharePoint Server 2013 is a service application that allows users to collaborate on and view Visio diagrams. The service also enables data-connected Visio 2013 diagrams to be refreshed and updated from a variety of data sources.
Planning your Visio Services deployment before rollout can help give you the best system performance and user satisfaction, and also help you avoid unexpectedly overtaxing system resources in your SharePoint Server 2013 farm and related systems.
Visio Services enables you to render published Visio diagrams. These drawings can be connected to external data, and drawing elements can be updated based on that data. Security is an important consideration when enabling these scenarios.
