Technological innovation is the cornerstone of the change we’re now witnessing. Through its constant steps forward, technology continues to generate new opportunities linked to increasing automation, greater connections between people and machines and the development of a new language: the language of data.
In this context, writing, reading, analysing, and criticising data is a skill of paramount importance, today more than ever.
The aim of data literacy is to provide you with these skills.
This is the fourth industrial revolution, and its product is data
According to IDC forecasts, by 2025, the volume of data will be
10 times more than today. Automation, robotics, IoT, Machine Learning and AI are some of the factors that will contribute to this
increase in quantity, diversity and complexity of data and their sources.
A NEW ALPHABET
From data to information, the business language
Today, organisations are dealing with an incredible quantity of data, but they need to get value from this data in order to remain competitive on the market. More data does not necessarily mean more knowledge.
Censuswide, only 1 manager out of 4 (24%) and 1 director out of 3 (32%) claim to be skilled in data analysis. Investing in data literacy means investing in your company’s future.
A CRITICAL SKILL
The benefits of Data Literacy
As found in research by Wharton School Academics – University of Pennsylvania & IHS Markit, when faced with increasing business complexity, having a critical approach to data means:
- enhanced competitiveness, with performances improved by 3%-5% in terms of market capitalisation and a positive impact also with regard to company performance indicators such as MOL, RES and ROS;
- greater insight, i.e. more immediate strategic knowledge;
- better decisions as they are more informed;
- a more engaged workforce.
