The Emergence of Augmented Analytics & How it is Helping to Create a Data-Driven Organization?

Let’s start with the big picture!

Terminology of Augmented Analytics

Gartner- Augmented analytics uses machine learning to automate data preparation, insight discovery, data science, and machine learning model development and insight sharing for a broad range of business users, operational workers, and citizen data scientists.

What does it offer?

  • Improved relevance and business insights: Helps to identify false or less relevant insights, minimizes the risk of missing imperative insights in data, navigates to actionable insights to users, and empowers decision-making abilities and actions.
  • Faster & near-perfect insights: Greatly reduces the time spent in data discovery and exploration, provides near-perfect data insights to business users, and helps them augment the data analysis with AI/ML algorithms.
  • Insights made available everywhere & anywhere: The flexibility and compatibility of augmented analytics expand the data reach across the workflow, beyond citizen data scientists, and operational teams who can leverage the insights with less effort.
  • Enable less dependency on skill constraints: You don’t need to rely more on data scientists anymore. With the help of advanced AI/ML algorithms; augmented analytics fills the required skill constraints helping organizations to do more with technology than humans’ intervention in data analytics and management process.
