Citizen Data Scientists Deliver Business Intelligence!

Why Should My Business Want Citizen Data Scientists?

These days, it seems that every conference I attend, there is a discussion about Citizen Data Scientists. For some of my colleagues, the discussion seems irrelevant or, in some cases, daunting. If you are hesitant to embrace this type of initiative in your business, here are a few Gartner predictions that might convince you to at least consider this crucial shift in business culture and data literacy.

Your Business Data Can Be Popular with Social BI!

Social Business Intelligence Creates a Business User Community!

Everyone over the age of five knows about social networks and social media. No matter which platform you prefer and how you choose to share your thoughts and ideas, you are no doubt engaged in the networking world. When it comes to business intelligence and analytics, there is no reason you can’t employ the same techniques to share, collaborate, create and innovate.

Business Users Can and Will Adopt Self-Serve BI Tools!

Choose the Right Self-Serve BI Tools and Ensure User Adoption!

When your business users are asked to take on yet another responsibility, they are likely to balk. Most companies are short-handed and expect more of their team members than ever before. There are a lot of good reasons to initiate data democratization and engage in digital transformation to modernize and improve the enterprise and to improve results. If the business can encourage data sharing and collaboration, it can also improve the shared knowledge of the team and create accountability and empowerment. In so doing, the business can leverage the knowledge and skill of each team member and ensure that every business user is working to their full potential with the all the information they need to solve problems and to capitalize on opportunities.

Key Performance Indicators Are Crucial to Objective Metrics!

Stay on Track with Business User Access to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)!

The days of managing a business by opinion or ‘gut feeling’ are long past. Every business has competition – whether local or global or both and the only way to know that the business is performing against objectives and goals and is strategically competitive is to use measurable goals.

Compete at a Higher Level with Self-Serve BI Tools!

Put the ‘I’ in Business Intelligence with BI Democratization!

If you think Business Intelligence solutions are just for business analysts, data scientists or IT professionals, you are missing the real intent of business intelligence. Business Intelligence is, by its nature, supposed to inform the business and make it easier to make the right decisions and drive your business forward but if 90% of your users have no access to real, clear information, you are missing most of the advantages and tying up your team in red tape, delayed decisions and endless requests for information. You are shackling your analysts, data scientists and IT team by burying them under those requests for information and using precious time they might be spending on strategic and crucial initiatives.

Business Intelligence Reporting for Business Users!

Imagine BI Tools and Reporting that Offer Personalized Views and Clarity!

One of the most important capabilities of a Business Intelligence Solution or BI tool is the ability to provide reports, both for the user who is leveraging the tool and for teams, managers and executives who want to share or make decisions based on fact-based information.
