The data skills gap is growing

“To have and to hold”…it’s a marriage vow, but it also describes our relationship to data. We all have data at our fingertips, be it from surveys, reviews to internal revenue numbers, and we all hold data in our organisations, on our devices, even written down.

This marriage between people and data is often thought of as a responsibility, focused on protecting personal information from malicious forces or accidental leaks – but data contains a wealth of insights that could inform and revolutionise your business strategy!

The data is speaking to you and has a story to tell, but the key is learning to hear the message and turn insight into action. Put simply, your organisation needs people who can understand, analyse and interpret data in a way that informs and directs business decisions.

We want you to harness data so that you can be informed, be insightful and be innovative. Take a look at the resources below to learn how you can realise the benefits of your data, build a data-driven culture and learn why data-skills are a priority, not a luxury, for business success.
