The true business value of data comes from understanding how to answer questions before it’s delivered. Once the data is accessible, what techniques are used to visualize data to help tell a story? This talk will share how data literacy helps business users ask richer and more complex questions with data throughout the organization. The power of governed data democratization, analytics upskilling, and self-service best practices will be shared so anyone can make data-driven decisions. We will also learn how data literacy embedded in corporate culture has improved communication and empowered people throughout the Bloomberg organization.
