Data Democratization 

With data democratization, many businesses focus on empowering all stakeholders by giving them access to business-related data. 

Currently, it is possible to guarantee that all users can analyse data on their own with the help of the right analytics automation platform.  

The easy access allows employees to keep a tab on their performance, boosting their productivity, and seamlessly aligning the entire workforce.  

Analytic automation solutions, which increased cloud computing power, and open-source tools allow access to machine learning capabilities and help democratize analytics. With a unified analytics automation platform, users can access valuable insights quickly, anywhere and anytime.  

By upskilling data professionals and allowing them to have insights from data, the results for businesses can be surprising.  

Real-Time Data Visualization 

Currently, most businesses are running at lightning speed producing extensive data volumes. The challenge that can arise is to manage these amounts of data, which becomes critical to deriving actionable insights. 

Therefore, real-time visualization becomes incredibly important when managing daily operations and enabling businesses to access, analyse, and explore live operational data, allowing them to take control of general business operations.  

Technologies like CrateDB can store and query real-time data, handling the velocity, volume, and diversity of machine and log data. CrateDB ingests millions of rows of data per second while also querying terabytes of data in real-time, 20x faster than their previous database, according to current users.  

Automation of Data Analysis 

Considering the scale and complexity of data, the best way to harness its value is to automate the data discovery and preparation process.  

This frees up the analyst to focus on other high value-add activities by using a platform that empowers analytics automation, delivers insights more efficiently, and automates daily tasks.  

Automated data analytics can be utilized for various tasks, such as data exploration, preparation, replication, and maintenance of data warehouses.
