In 2020, enterprises turned to data & analytics1 in response to the business challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Enterprises that invested in data & analytics were more likely to be able to successfully pivot to new business models and transform how they reached out to customers in the new normal.

But for that investment to work, enterprises’ access isn’t enough. In 2021, enterprises must be able to get to the right data at the right time. That means getting cleaned, prepped, governed data for analytics teams in time for them to make impactful decisions. 

Data to Insights: Garbage-In, Garbage-Out

The biggest problem that comes with the sheer volume of data at an enterprise’s disposal is that not all of it is relevant and not all of it is ready to be used. Often referred to as “garbage-in, garbage-out,” the quality of insights and answers depends entirely on the quality of the input data. 

Sifting through non-relevant data, trying to find the right version of a data asset when there are many similar assets, and not understanding what data even exists make it terribly hard for analysts to find the data they need to make data-driven decisions.  As a result, data analysts spend as much as 80% of their time searching for, accessing, preparing, and transforming data so that it becomes suitable for analysis. It doesn’t have to be this way.
