Accelerate Innovation by Democratizing Analytics

Enterprises moving toward being analytically driven risk opening an “analytics divide” if they overinvest in tools for their data science teams and underinvest in upskilling their knowledge workers. By balancing those investments and encouraging excellence in analytics they can overcome that divide. The result is an analytics transformation known as “democratizing analytics.”

Efficiency Gains

Business Problem

Gartner calls data and analytics the “key accelerant of an organization's digitization and transformation efforts.” Analytics must drive digital transformation, but organizations must drive its acceptance. Some organizations invest in analytics transformation only for siloed data science teams, only to give their knowledge workers access to numerous tech platforms without the training to use them. The result is usually slow progress and poor ROI on digital transformation efforts.

These organizations are hampered by the “analytics divide” between their data science teams and the knowledge workers who make decisions based on analytical results. The former group has the tools and expertise to produce analytical results, while the latter, much larger group has the domain expertise to identify business problems and needs.  

Analytics Solution

The solution is to “democratize” analytics by both upskilling knowledge workers across the organization to create their own analytical insights and giving data science teams the analytic tools, they need. Democratizing analytics allows knowledge workers faster access to insights through self-service and frees data scientists for high-value initiatives like analytics development and digital transformation. The result is increased ROI in analytics and greater innovation for the organization as a whole.
