The DEMOCRATISATION of Data...

Intelligent people find new uses for data every day. Still, despite the explosion of interest in the data collected by just about every sector of business, many organisations continue to relegate data knowledge to a small number of employees.

This is a mistake — and in the long run, it’s unsustainable.

Think of it this way: Very few companies expect only professional writers to know how to write. So why ask only Technology to understand and analyse data, at least at a basic level?


Why would non–IT staff need to learn data analytics?
That’s like asking why non-accountants should be expected to stay within budget.
By saddling Technology staff with basic gate-keeping tasks, organisations divert their attention from the larger projects that require their deep expertise.

What's the issue?

Relegating all data knowledge to a handful of people within a company is problematic...

  • Technology staff find it frustrating because it’s hard for them to communicate their findings to colleagues who lack basic data literacy.
  • Business stakeholders are unhappy because data requests take too long to fulfil, and often fail to answer the original questions. In some cases, that’s because the "questioner" failed to explain the question properly to Technology.

What's the resolution?

These days every industry is drenched in data, and the organisations that succeed are those that most quickly make sense of their data in order to adapt to what’s coming. The best way to enable fast discovery and deeper insights is to disperse data analytics expertise across an organisation.
