What is stage 5?
Congratulations! You’re at the pinnacle of the data journey. You no longer have to rely on users inputting variables into the system to predict future outcomes. Instead, machine learning and artificial intelligence make it possible for you to solve problems before you’re even aware an issue exists.
It’s likely that you utilise data analytics as a strategic asset to measure performance and to help you to reach your goals; and overall, data analytics is firmly rooted in your company culture.
What are the challenges?
At this stage, it’s possible that you face three main challenges:
- Maintaining user adoption across your organisation to ensure people are still getting the most out of your systems.
- Keeping up with future technologies to make sure you’re staying competitive and remaining ahead of the curve.
- Finding people with the right specialist skills so that you’re able to fully take advantage of your technologies.
Current situation: Data is a strategic asset
You have either a CEO, Chief Analytics Officer (CAO) or Chief Data Officer (CDO) acting as the company-wide data analytics advocate.
This exposure has caused data analytics to be viewed as a powerful tool that can generate revenue and sharpen competitive edge. As a result, you deploy a full range of analytics and Business Intelligence (BI) applications to support cross-functional and enterprise-wide decision-making.
