Self-Serve Data Preparation Transforms Business Users to Citizen Data Scientists!
Data Scientists spend a lot of time gathering and preparing data for analysis, and that is time they could spend more productively performing tasks that add value and strategic direction. Business users cannot even hope to prepare data for analytics – at least not without the right tools.
Gartner predicts that, ‘data preparation will be utilized in more than 70% of new data integration projects for analytics and data science.’ So, why is there so much attention paid to the task of data preparation? It’s simple. Because, without the right preparation, analytics can produce incomplete, incorrect results, thereby sending the business off in the wrong direction and resulting in a loss of confidence in analytics for decision-making.
