How to Assure Citizen Data Scientist Success!

Enterprise Culture Change Assures Success of Citizen Data Scientist Initiatives!

Many businesses have embraced the Gartner prediction that transforms business users into Citizen Data Scientists to help organizations democratize analytics with simple tools that will improve the quality and timeliness of decisions. You can read white papers, industry articles and other publications that will support and articulate this approach to business flexibility, agility and success. But, if you do not embrace the culture change required to deploy this strategy across your enterprise, your Citizen Data Scientist initiative will not succeed.

Business Users Need Personalized BI Tools & Dashboards!

Flexible Dashboard Software Can Deliver Business Intelligence to Business Users!

When I speak to friends and colleagues about reaping the benefits of business intelligence, they are often frustrated by the inability to a) access data and build reports and insight without the assistance of IT or analysts or b) access tools that allow them to use a BI tool or solution in a way that is meaningful to them. In other words, they either have NO access to business intelligence tools or they have access but those BI tools are restrictive and provide no flexible, agile way to gather, see and analyze data for the type of role they perform within the organization.

Discover Key Influencer Analytics and Improve Your Biz!

What Are Key Influencer Analytics and Why Should My Business Care?

Do you know what Key Influencer Analytics are? If not, you should! One of the most frustrating tasks a business user has in analytics is finding and gathering the right data for analysis and ensuring that all factors, variables and data that may affect the outcome of the analysis is included. That is why these activities are typically performed by Data Scientists, analysts or IT in many organizations. Without the ability to identify the right variables, and determine the relationships among these variables and business success, the business is likely to measure and attend to the wrong things.

Mobile App Development Experts Ensure Success!

Don’t Be Intimidated! You Can Achieve Your Mobile App Vision!

I have had many conversations with friends and colleagues who are struggling to justify the development of a mobile application. Some want to develop a business application to improve productivity, connectivity and collaboration and access for business users and some have a great idea for a mobile app for consumers but nearly every one of them is stalled by the idea that it will be too expensive, that they don’t have the skills inside their own organization or that they have no idea how to get started.

Can Business Users Really Use BI Tools?

Don’t Leave Your Business Users Out in the Cold. Give Them BI Tools!

Don’t underestimate your business users!

You don’t have to leave the business intelligence and analytics efforts to IT or business analysts or data scientists.

Combine Data Literacy and Digital Transformation!

Is Improved Data Literacy Really THAT Important for My Business?

Why do your business team members need to be data literate? If your business is like most, it struggles to keep up with trends and to understand whether, when and how to implement enterprise-wide initiatives. You must convince your senior team and board of directors that these changes (which may be time-consuming and costly) are worth the effort. So, when a business manager says that her/his team needs to be more data literate, these same questions will arise.

Business Users LOVE Smart Data Visualization!

Can Smart Data Visualization Make My Business Smarter?

All the data in the world can’t help you improve your business results unless you can sift through it and see it in a way that tells a story – a story that leads you to a conclusion, helps you solve a problem or allows you to see how your business can grow, change and succeed. Columnar reports and a sea of data are a barrier to insight. But, that doesn’t have to be YOUR problem.
