The average business user does not have a full grasp of Advanced Data Discovery or Data Preparation methods, and most organizations would not want business users to waste precious time trying to navigate the complexities of a manual data preparation process. If a business provides a solid foundation for self-serve business intelligence with augmented data preparation features, business users can quickly and easily prepare data for analysis and get the results they need to move forward and make decisions.
Auto Insight Can Help Business Users Analyze Data at the Touch of a Button!
When you are trying to implement a data democratization initiative and give your business users access to analytics, you can run into roadblocks with analytical tools and solutions that are too difficult for the average skills of a business user. It is impossible to achieve your goals and ensure that every user is comfortable with data analytics and fact-based decision-making if you don’t give your users a tool that they can use as easily as they use Google or other familiar search mechanisms.
When combined, Digital Transformation and Data Literacy provide a rich and profound value to the organization. A properly structured initiative will prepare the business for an ever-changing market and business environment and make the business and its team members agile, nimble, and capable of responding to change. The initiative, once employed, will provide many benefits to offset the efforts involved in completing the initiative.

Make Sure Your Advanced Analytics Solution Has Natural Language Processing!
If you stay up-to-date with your industry and market publications, you have probably heard a lot of buzz about natural language processing or NLP. In fact, whether you know it or not, you use NLP every day. When you type a question into Google, you are using NLP! The system translates your question and returns results to meet your needs.
Wise business managers are embracing the Digital Transformation initiative in an effort to improve accuracy, productivity and the integration of technology and analytics within the organization. Augmented Analytics is a logical and critical addition to the Dx initiative and will significantly enhance the success of the Digital Transformation agenda. When a business wishes to consider and implement a Digital Transformation and Augmented Analytics initiative, it must shift its cultural assumptions to support continuous improvement. There will be no Digital Transformation or Data Literacy success if the enterprise does not embrace the concept of continuous improvement.

When Considering Advanced Analytics, Look for an Augmented Analytics Solution!
When a business is considering an advanced analytics solution, it must sell its management team and investors on the value and benefit of that solution and the merits of implementing such a solution or upgrading an existing solution.
Smarten is pleased to announce the introduction of its eLearning Workshop, ‘Be a Citizen Data Scientist – Aspire, Inspire, Become‘. This online course is designed to provide a solid foundation for one’s business and, more importantly, for those members of the team who may be considering as early adopters or champions of the Citizen Data Scientist transformation within their organization.
What is a Citizen Data Scientist and How Do I Create Them in My Business?
What is a Citizen Data Scientist and what is the role of a Citizen Data Scientist? It isn’t as complicated as you might think. A Citizen Data Scientist is a business user working in a professional capacity within an enterprise – one who is collaborative and curious by nature and willing and ready to adopt augmented analytics tools to prepare and analyze data and use that data to gain insight into business issues and opportunities. The role of a Citizen Data Scientist is to interact with and liaise with IT and data scientists to define use cases and refine data output to be used in making fact-based decisions.
Creativity is the lifeblood of an enterprise! But, it is easy to get into a rut and do what has worked in the past. If a business is to succeed, it must constantly generate new ideas and new ways to address the market and its consumers. Augmented Data discovery and the new world of self-serve tools has added an interesting dimension to this discussion as it encourages business users to become Citizen Data Scientists and encourages organizations to embrace data democratization.
Integrate Augmented Analytics as a Foundation for Digital Transformation!
Digital Transformation (Dx) is achieved when an organization plans and exploits digital technologies, workflow and processes, and its core capabilities and skills with an enterprise culture that evolves and shifts to engender a digital business model that advances business. Any Dx plan must include a review and appropriate modification of businesses processes, business models, operations, team collaboration and customer relationships. ###
