Data literacy = key to unlocking the power of data democratization
When one thinks of the power of democratizing data to the masses, we can see how it is the answer for data and analytical success. Giving data to the masses, looking to find insight and knowledge, opening it up for everyone is empowering and the right thing to do.
There is one large issue though: when you give it to the masses, but the masses aren’t trained or aware of how to move beyond observation to insight. This is where data literacy becomes the key to unlocking the power of data democratization.
Overall, democratizing data is paradoxical: it causes a problem but its the solution. With the empowerment of the workforce to properly read, work with, analyze, and argue with data, an organization can realize success with data democratization, and data and analytical strategy.
