Gartner Report: Build a Comprehensive Ecosystem for Citizen Data Scientists to Drive Impactful Analytics
Data scientists are in demand like never before, and everyone’s snapping them up. If you can find one, you’re lucky — but what if you can’t? The solution is spreading like wildfire: Tools now exist to transform knowledge workers into “citizen data scientists.”
It’s a transformative idea, but there’s a catch. If you don’t build a solid foundation first, such an initiative can cause far more problems than it solves. We believe that this comprehensive new analysis from Gartner reveals how to:
Create a rock-solid ecosystem for citizen data science, with checklists of must-have tools, data, people, and processes
Add capabilities incrementally — and why doing so is far more effective than a sudden “big bang” approach
Ensure healthy collaboration, not friction, between expert data scientists and citizen data scientists
So yes, adopt citizen data science for your organization. But do it right. This report reveals the pitfalls — and the path to success. Give it a look right now.
