Businesses that invest in self-service data preparation experience more favorable outcomes when fully integrating this advancement into their daily working processes, applications, and decision-making.
Empowering Users- Democratizing data preparation through self-service reporting allows companies to better leverage the collective wisdom of the broader organization to achieve better outcomes faster. Engaging in self-service reporting allows a greater sense of ownership with data findings and creating custom reports. This factor alone can have a massive impact on business success.
Efficiency of Process- If ROI on your data is directly proportional to the number of people using it, self-service data prep allows IT to become the data hero, streamlining the data supply chain and unleashing more data on the organization than ever before. In turn, self-service reporting shifts the work to information consumers’ fingertips by allowing IT organizations the ability to focus on increasingly scarce resources on data acquisition and broader governance issues like reuse, standardization, security, and compliance.
Puts Decisions Into Context- Finally, shifting to self-service data preparation will not only result in faster cycle time, but it will also result in better insights since the people preparing the data actually know how it’s being used to drive decisions.
