Data literacy–it's all about fluency. This fluency dictates how organizations–and those in it–comprehend and communicate data to drive value. What is your organization's fluency of data literacy like?


What do we mean by data literacy? Data literacy represents the fluency with which individuals and organizations can comprehend and communicate with data. This fluency is crucial for modern data-driven organizations because highly data literate organizations derive the most value from their data.

They are the ones that can overcome siloed architectures to interpret enterprise data consistently and derive trusted insights – whether they relate to global operations, 360° views of customers, or end-to-end supply chains. Why is data literacy so important? Data and analytics have the potential to transform all businesses.

Taking a data-driven approach can help organizations improve every aspect of their operations – from understanding market and customer requirements, driving product and service innovations, process efficiencies, to mitigating risks. But to realize that potential, organizations need the right levels of data literacy.
