But most companies are still forcing people to jump through a million hoops just to get the story from their data. The emphasis on being data-driven, while excellent in theory, has become increasingly complex, time-consuming, and way more painful for everyone involved than it needs to be.
The fix? Data needs to start coming to us. We need to give our employees a way to understand their data without expecting them to learn data skills. We need to bring data insights to them, wherever and whenever they work. Data storytelling gives anyone, regardless of level or skill set, the ability to understand and use data in their jobs every single day.
It’s the best way to give your team the story about your business
Instead of expecting your people to learn how to analyze spreadsheets or explore dashboards, data storytelling uses simple, easy-to-understand language and a newsfeed-style experience to ensure that everyone in your company understands data, all the time.
This makes it easier for your people to make the right decisions faster, which ultimately leads to happier employees and better results for your company.
Data storytelling doesn’t make you rip out anything you already have and start from scratch. It doesn’t require you to spend days or months configuring anything. It’s the fastest way to get everyone in your company focused on the right things, and making better and faster decisions than ever before.
It’s more like a cultural shift to bring data understanding and action to everyone in your company that complements your data exploration and analytics efforts. It’s the personalized, easy experience that you have come to expect in today’s world. It’s the fastest and easiest way for your employees to understand your business.
