In today’s connected world, access to clean and relevant data faster is the key to extracting value out of it. The relevance of data is also understood better and faster if it is accessed by the SMEs who are experienced in the area eg: like sales data to be handled and analysed by Sales department data analysts. In such a scenario, having a centralised data science team rather throttles the monetization possibilities of data. Hence it makes sense to make data accessible to all business areas where they can combine with their targets and extract insights faster. On the flip side, it is also essential to have clean and smooth data which may have to be combined with other formats. This falls squarely in the realm of data science and engineering. We discuss here how to democratize data optimally so that we get clean data as well as it can be utilised by SMEs.
