Everybody in an organization, regardless of their data literacy level or role, needs to:
- Find the most relevant data to start their analysis. When there are hundreds or thousands of tables in the company, it is easy to get lost.
- Understand and Trust the data they have in front of them. Answer questions like: is the “payment” column in $ or €? Was it refreshed today? Where is the information coming from? What is the code used to create this table? Who is the owner? Who is going to be impacted by the changes I am making to this data? What departments are maintaining it?
- Use the data efficiently. Re-use the work that has already been done (SQL queries or BI Dashboards).
