How About Giving Your Business Users the Power to Prepare Data for Analysis?
Can Your Business Achieve Self-Serve Data Prep? Lots of my friends talk about the difficulty of preparing data for analysis and how long it takes to get IT or data scientists or analysts to take on the project, get the data prepared and run reports or perform analytics. Frankly, this problem is a puzzle to me!
Data prep does not have to be something your IT or data science staff does. It can be done easily with simple tools that are accessible and can be leveraged by every business user without any specialized technical skills. Self-Serve Data Preparation and self-serve ETL (data extraction, transformation and loading) can and should be easy. Users can transform, shape, reduce, combine, explore, clean, sample and aggregate data, without the need for SQL skills, ETL or other programming language.
With the right Augmented Analytics solution, data preparation is presented with tools, guidance and machine learning. Machine learning capability provides guidance to determine the best techniques and the best fit transformations for the data business users want to analyze, allowing for better understanding of data.
Data Preparation Tools can make your life a lot easier and will allow every user in your organization to gather and prepare data for analysis without delay so users can leverage fact-based analytics to make decisions and to move forward with projects, capitalize on opportunities and find the root cause of problems.
With the mobility and affordability of these tools, there is no reason why your organization cannot enjoy Self-Serve ETL.
