The Advantages of Augmented Analytics include: support for day-to-day business decisions, insight, perspective and analysis, quick hypothesis and prototyping, agility for business development, timely and accurate decision-making, emergence of power users and data popularity and transformation of business users to Citizen Data Scientists.
And, that’s just for business users! For data scientists, the Benefits of Advanced Analytics and augmented analytics tools include: reduction in day-to-day requests, ability to focus on strategic projects, focus on projects that require 100% accuracy, ability to achieve mature modeling goals
But, any pitch to senior management or IT about Augmented Analytics advantages should not stop with generic examples. Look at the roles and challenges faced by your business users and think about how they can apply their professional knowledge and skill to refine analysis, share data with others and create meaningful views and visualizations that will increase their value, optimize resources and improve collaboration. You know your business better than anyone. Use that knowledge to provide examples and stories of data use and leverage within your own enterprise!
