Blog The Evolution of Data & Analytics in the Workplace

Amid stay-at-home orders across the country, employees have ditched their daily commutes to work from dining room tables, couches and beds in their own homes. With the flexibility to work anytime from nearly anywhere, many are saying goodbye to the traditional 9-5 workday. 

The way we work is changing — and so has the role of data & analytics in the workplace.  

Today, data & analytics in the workplace is marked by time & money wasted on BI tools and dashboards that aren’t looked at or used. 

Data scientists & analysts are the only ones looking at data everyday — spending most of their time answering on-off questions about the countless dashboards they’ve created. 

Being data-driven requires some analytical background or skill set because data is delivered in a way that is not actionable or personalized.

In this state, it’s no surprise that BI and analytics adoption has remained at 30%.

It’s time for companies of all sizes to move towards the future state. 

A place where data leaders will actually see a return on their analytics investments — scaling analytics teams and increasing data adoption. 

Analysts will spend more time doing what they were actually hired to do — deep analysis — and will be happier and more fulfilled at work because of it.

Everyone will be able to interpret and use data to make better business decisions because data is delivered as automatically generated, in-context, language-first data stories. 

Looking at data will become a  daily habit for everyone — regardless of department or function.

In the future state, building a lasting data culture becomes attainable for all. Are you ready?
