About this event
You’ve heard the term “data democratization” before, and it’s only getting more popular. The idea is simple: it’s about giving business teams access to data to help them make data-driven decisions autonomously.
That said, there’s many factors at play to make data democratization a reality. One element that’s vital to success is a thoughtful approach to knowledge sharing - this is where data discovery comes in.
In this live-online fireside chat, join Carson Wilshire and Tristan Mayer as they share key insights on the journey to data democratization. Together, they’ll share practical tips that meet you where you are - whether you’re just getting started or looking to level-up your existing strategy.
