How Can You Get The Most from Your Data?

Jan 19, 2022 | Data Management, Frameworks & Accelerators

Organisations require experts, who can assess, condense, and effectively explain the most valuable information.

Collecting large data isn’t enough to unlock its full worth. People must do this, particularly those who understand how analytics may help businesses solve problems or capitalise on opportunities. Good data people, on the other hand, are hard to come by, as most executives are aware. Only 18 percent of firms feel they have the expertise to successfully acquire and apply insights, according to a McKinsey report. ¹ At the same time, just 19% of businesses believe their insights-gathering procedures directly contribute to sales success. What if data analysts alone aren’t sufficient? After example, if a fantastic idea gained from sophisticated analytics is too difficult to comprehend, corporate leaders will just ignore it.

That is why businesses must seek out to hire and develop the expert ‘translators’ capable of bridging the gap between different tasks inside an organisation and efficiently communicating between them. Consider the fields of business and analytics, for example. Regardless of how well-versed in data or how well-developed their analytics needs are, most business managers have an imperfect knowledge of the data available. In this instance, analytics managers who have a better understanding of the data, as well as the company and a clear picture of the goals, may propose solutions and ideas ahead of time. Finding a single person who possesses all of the necessary talents is impossible, and securing specialist staff with two complementing skill sets, like programming, statistics, finance, or economics, at any sufficient scale is impractical. NovoFinity have identified many of these opportunities by hiring overlapping experts that can cover most, if not all, of an organisation at some functional level to bring together a more total understanding.

When deciding on which skill-sets to hire, keep in mind that producing business effect based on analytical insights necessitates assembling the correct team of experts with complementary abilities and then establishing the required links between them. These interoperators, in fact, are the links that hold the chain of an efficient advanced-analytics capability together. On the business side, this necessitates the hiring of individuals who can design a plan and conduct economic and financial analyses to assess the worth of potential prospects. These people transform such findings into requirements that IT uses to build an analytics environment that can be used to run, validate, and scale analytics. Business managers must next transform the insights into messages and offers that can be offered to the marketplace once the data has been turned into insights.

It’s crucial to be able to collaborate swiftly and flexibly. The best procedures are iterative, requiring business, IT, and analytics teams to examine real-world data quickly, recalibrate analysis, alter assumptions, and then test outcomes.
