Data drives decisions and, in today’s competitive business environment, the kind of fact-based decisions achieved through Advanced Analytics are mandatory. These data-driven decisions ensure that a business does not make a misstep or have to guess at forecasts, plans and the root cause of problems.
Identify Citizen Data Scientists and Provide the Support They Need to Succeed
When your business decides to begin a Citizen Data Scientist initiative, it faces numerous challenges but the resulting benefits the enterprise will reap from this program are undeniable. With the right preparation, every business can successfully enable this type of initiative and provide augmented analytics to improve collaboration, data literacy and digital transformation in the organization.
When a business chooses to follow the guidance of Gartner and embrace the Citizen Data Scientist initiative to transform business users and provide analytical tools for all team members, it must approach the initiative with appropriate planning.
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.
Self Service Data Preparation Takes the Complexity Out of Data Prep!
When asked about using an analytical solution to find and use data and make decisions, many business users feel insecure about the process required to get to the results. Data preparation has traditionally been the domain of a data scientist, a business analyst or an IT professional.

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.
