Kathryn Kelly for SmartDataCollective:
This is the one that really got people. Companies need solutions that enable
them to use and customize their data easily, because it is the whole team,
not just the individual analyst, that knows the business best. By offering
business users intuitive data solutions, we bypass the need for the data
scientist, who works in isolation. In fact, most data scientists are
associated with the old school of business intelligence, where systems were
so complicated that they needed someone with a data science background to
run and get value from them. The new generation of solutions, on the other
hand, is making it easy for business users to engage big data. An
interdisciplinary team will see and use the visuals provided, and
collaborate on the best decisions on a regular basis.
It’s better not to make predictions when you miss the point.
