There is arguably nothing more valuable to your company and central to its success than data. However, diving into the vast world of data and data management doesn’t have to be a daunting task, even for non-technical data users. Anyone can increase their data knowledge by simply taking the time to understand the ins and outs of data terminology and management techniques.

Users who are data literate are also more autonomous, and a data-driven organization is one in which all stakeholders, not just analysts or certain departments, have these abilities.
