How to Scale Data-Driven Decision Making Across Your Organization

How To Scale Data Driven Decision Making Across Your Organization

Data-driven: a phrase that sounds so simple, but in practice so complicated. For years, organizations have accumulated data in various formats, from many sources. Data engineers were expected to process and analyze this data for consumption by business users. This led to data being more of a cost center and IT function than a true business driver.  

The advent of self-service business intelligence (BI) and cloud-native applications with embedded analytics has made some data more accessible to business users — the operative word being some. While this approach is a major improvement over not having direct data access, data silos and complexity still limit the accuracy and value of data for most organizations. 

True data-driven leaders know that getting business value from data means making everyone in the organization a data analyst, unlocking the power of enterprise-wide analytics for all. When more people can access analytics, it creates a flywheel effect where using data can improve the organization’s decisions over time and enhance its bottom-line.
