The technology your company is using based on javascript, flash, html5 or WPF, or Swing, or etc.? Automation is technology dependent in many cases. –  SayusiAndo Feb 5 at 13:40
Javascript and I guess using third party library for showing charts like D2Charts,HighCharts –  nishi2410 Feb 5 at 13:44
Then you can use the tools which deal with DOM tree. Selenium, WebDriver, CodedUI, etc. I don't know all of them. I think you should do a few POCs to figure out which one is proper for your company and the cases you have to face. –  SayusiAndo Feb 5 at 14:02

If what you care is the visual aspect of your charts, a tool like Selenium might not be enough. You should take a look to "visual tests" tools like Sikuli, PDIFF, PhantomCSS, Huxley. And maybe you could end up using both type of tools: Selenium to navigate in your app/site and visual-tool to check that the visual aspect of your graph is correct.
