And our Quote of the day from the Qlik Accenture Human Impact on Data Literacy report:
“Self-service without self-sufficiency is a bit like going fishing and expecting the fish to jump out of the lake for you. You need the rods, the bait and the nets to be self-sufficient to catch the fish. That’s what employers need to provide employees when it comes to reading and understanding data.”
