A recent survey by NewVantage Partner shows a significant decline in companies succeeding on the journey to becoming data-driven, despite the well-known fact that organizations need to be more data-driven to compete and out-perform. The survey shows that from 2017 to 2019, there’s been a 6 percent drop in those reporting that they’ve successfully created a data-driven organization. Furthermore, 77 percent of respondents “clearly say that technology isn’t the problem—people and (to a lesser extent) processes are.”

How you can become a more data-driven organization

There is a way to reverse this trend. It centers on democratizing analytics. By making analytics accessible to more business users within an organization, the adoption of data-driven decision-making can grow exponentially. One challenge is the fact that, in many enterprises, business users can’t access the data they need, and can’t easily perform self-service analytics. There are valuable insights waiting to be discovered, but the increasing velocity and quantity of data today have overtaken the capacity of many analytics tools to deliver self-service insights, even those platforms that call themselves “business-user-friendly.”

The tools needed for real-time and predictive analytics using multiple data streams have, until now, required highly experienced data scientists, and considerable manual effort. The lack of data science resources and the resulting time spent waiting for insights is one reason that fewer organizations have been self-identifying as data-driven. What’s needed in the age of Big Data and artificial intelligence (AI) is a new path to democratizing analytics—and TIBCO Spotfire® 10.6 can provide that path.
