Over the last few years, the phrase “Data drives all business transformation” has been ubiquitous and probably over-used in different contexts (I plead guilty to that charge as a data and analytics professional). But as we all collectively grapple with personal and professional challenges in the interesting times we are living in now, the importance of data and the need to understand what it means has been driven home powerfully on a daily basis.
At a personal level, every day when I catch up with the morning news and look at various numbers and charts tied to the COVID-19 crisis, I can’t help but wonder what’s behind that data. How are various metrics defined? Are they consistently measured across different regions? Are they providing the insight needed to answer key questions? On a more serious basis, professionals working in varied industry verticals such as healthcare, government, higher education, retail, and insurance have to answer these questions and many more about their data to ensure that the data can deliver the insights they need to make key operational decisions.
And while these data professionals are dealing with many short-term challenges, the longer-term data-driven priorities for digital transformation – such as enabling new business and operating models, driving innovation, and improving customer experience – haven’t gone away. If anything, some of these initiatives may be even more critical going forward. Leaders need to strike a balance between addressing short-term shifts in priorities and making progress on the longer-term vision, and trusted data is critical for both.
