Welcome to the new data world
The pandemic clearly uprooted the status quo of our personal and work lives, and yet one true protagonist has emerged from this unexpected narrative—technology.
Though we wait with bated breath for this year’s eventual conclusion, many still look to 2021 with hope. Intelligent technology has supported us in the way we work and our ability to remain connected with other humans, despite all odds. And will continue to advance us to new heights in 2021.
The COVID-19-authored new normal has forever changed the global business landscape, with data now weaved into all elements of daily existence. We now see it in our digital media feeds every day – a flood of data visualisations tracking infection rates and fatalities.
While that may not seem like a big deal to BI users, communicating news through data visualisations like heatmaps, charts and dashboards is a major leap forward. The more people using data visualisations to interpret complex information through stories shows that we are moving towards a more data literate world. And the democratisation of data is just the beginning.
The everyday use of data, together with the everyday data user, elevates data analytics from a niche to a necessity. Because in this age of information, data is power. And, in the ‘new normal’ – data is also hope!
So, let’s explore what 2021 has to offer in the world of data analytics and BI for your business.
Though we may not know what the future holds, we can leverage innovation, real-time data and human connection to support our path to greater success in 2021 and beyond!
Data analytics solutions that are dynamic, intuitive and encourage more users to explore data will be essential on this journey.
