Get with the Program! Data and BI Democratization IS Crucial!
A few months ago, I was talking to a friend (someone who has worked, for years, in the IT industry) and happened to mention data democratization. In this age of modern business intelligence, augmented analytics and Citizen Data Scientists, one would think that every IT professional would know the term ‘data democratization’ and its crucial importance to the business environment and success. But, my friend did not know or understand the term or its importance. In fact, she was even a bit skeptical about the potential and the movement toward self-serve business intelligence and analytics.
