About this talk

Despite the cross-industry drive to be data-driven and huge investments in self-service tools, enterprises still struggle to connect data to decision-making. According to research from Forrester, “91% of data and analytics decision-makers report that improving the use of data insights in decision making is challenging for their organizations” — even as 85% rank it as a priority. Why is there such a gap? Many data consumers lack the confidence and understanding needed to use data effectively — emphasizing the need to raise the bar on data literacy. On April 29th at 10am PT, join guest, Jennifer Belissent, Forrester’s expert on data literacy, and Aaron Kalb, Alation’s chief data officer and co-founder, for a deep dive into data literacy for the enterprise.
