Citizen Data Scientists Improve Productivity and Innovation in the Enterprise!
A business that does not optimize its resources is doomed to fail. In this rapidly changing business environment and market, every organization must make the best of precious human resources. No one has enough funding to hire additional resources to get the job done and, when there are extra funds, those funds are quickly earmarked for new products, marketing and other crucial activities.
Just as markets benefit from disruption, the enterprise too can benefit from disruption. Implementing initiatives to democratize data and improve Data Literacy is a good way to disrupt the culture and transform business users into Citizen Data Scientists. When business analytics is brought to the team member level it can provide crucial support and an environment where team members can leverage their core skills and knowledge and combine that knowledge with Data Analytics to innovate, solve problems and support organizational goals.
Data Scientists play a critical role in some organizations and can continue to focus on strategic initiatives while business users are free to make confident day-to-day decisions, share data and perform Advanced Analytics, all without the assistance of IT professionals or analysts.
A Citizen Data Scientist can add significant value to the organization and, as business users adopt Business Analytics tools, and data is shared, power users will emerge and the enterprise will gain insight into the type of data and reporting that is crucial to the organization and can help to plan, forecast and identify opportunities.
