Do you speak data?

Tableau has released this week the 2020 Data Trends report, an analysis written based on interviews with customers and experts in the area. The report covers topics like artificial intelligence, data storytelling, and data management. The first trend pointed out by the company is “data literacy. ”

The data literacy trend tends to gain strength as more and more data becomes available, but a lot of professionals don’t “speak data.” The study points out that poor data literacy prevents companies from creating a data-driven culture and benefiting from it. According to the report, 80% of organizations will invest in development to overcome extreme deficiencies in data literacy.

The fast-pace of digital marketing makes it especially important for marketers to be able to “speak data” and to tell stories based on data insights. Resources like data visualization, in-depth knowledge of different types of data, and knowing how data attributes, hierarchies, and database work will become a differential in the market. To continue innovating, marketers need to be data literate at all levels.

  1. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind
    me asking what theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it?

    :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a
    bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take
    care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

    1. Hi Justin,

      Thank you for the comment. The name of my theme is Roxima. It is not as customizable as I would like, but it was the best I could find. It is a paid theme, but worth it. Feel free to “steal” it.

      I will check out your website.

      Take care of yourself too, stay safe!

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was
    wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would
    be greatly appreciated. Thank you

  3. Good day I am so glad I found your site, I really
    found you by error, while I was researching on Askjeeve for something else, Anyways I
    am here now and would just like to say thanks for a marvelous post and a all round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I
    don’t have time to look over it all at the moment but I have bookmarked it and
    also included your RSS feeds, so when I have time I
    will be back to read much more, Please do keep up the excellent work.

  4. Hi there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group?

    There’s a lot of folks that I think would really appreciate
    your content. Please let me know. Cheers

  5. Hi, I do think your blog could possibly be having
    internet browser compatibility issues. Whenever I look at your website in Safari, it looks
    fine however, when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, wonderful blog!

  6. I am really enjoying the theme/design of your web site.
    Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues?
    A handful of my blog readers have complained about my blog
    not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great
    in Firefox. Do you have any ideas to help fix this problem?

  7. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.
    I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  8. Howdy I am so thrilled I found your blog, I really found you by mistake, while I was searching on Google for something else,
    Regardless I am here now and would just like to say thanks for a remarkable post
    and a all round exciting blog (I also love the
    theme/design), I don’t have time to go through it all at the moment but I have saved it and
    also included your RSS feeds, so when I have time
    I will be back to read much more, Please do keep up the excellent job.

  9. Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it
    from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements
    would really make my blog shine. Please let me know where you
    got your design. Thanks

  10. Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided
