A data strategy can succeed only if a company has the right data culture. Organisations need to create and nourish a good data culture that helps the workforce to be smart, efficient, and compliant with regulations.
Promoting skills, encouraging experimentation, and developing common platforms rather than creating multiple silos are all important facets of an open, healthy data culture. While promoting these aspects, it is essential to ensure that data privacy and security labelling is maintained in an end-to-end way, reducing the chance of human error and inappropriate data use.
A strong data culture goes beyond the remit of the IT department. Organisations need to give their data scientists the powerful tools they need to harness data, while empowering business analysts and users with tools and training to ask the right questions and generate the right outcomes.
This will help bridge the gap between data science and business users, so everyone has a clear understanding of how to unlock the value of data. Ultimately, organisations should strive to create a self-service data culture.
In this webinar on Wednesday December 15th at 11:00am, Robin Sutara, Chief Data Officer at Microsoft UK, will present how organisations can create this empowering self-service data culture. Following this, Information Age editor – Nick Ismail – will host a virtual fireside chat, where Robin and Di Mayze, Global Head of AI and Data at WPP, will discuss:
- The current state of data ecosystems
- Harnessing the power of data and the challenges
- Achieving a healthy, self-service data culture
- Bringing everyone on the data journey
