Getting your employees interested and engaged with data and statistics can be difficult. This is confirmed by numerous studies, including one from NewVantage Partners. They found that we are currently in a state of digital regression, explaining that from 2017 to 2019, there was a 16.4% drop in businesses that believe they have a data-driven culture.
The easiest way to quickly assess your data reliance is by asking whether a data outage would affect your daily operations. Would it be business as usual, or would your employees lose the ability to perform their daily tasks? This will tell you how data-driven, or data-detached, your marketing is.
It’s not necessarily a bad thing to be data-detached; it simply means that data is not essential to your daily workflows. The biggest takeaway for data-detached businesses is that you have plenty of potential ways in which you can utilize data to generate insight and direct the trajectory of your corporate strategy. You have the data available—now, you just need to start using it in a beneficial manner.
A data-driven culture has multiple tangible benefits that you should be aware of. While trusting that your own corporate intuition can work, data-dependent decision-making can foster quantification of results and thus deeper understanding. Some benefits you’ll notice with a data-driven culture include:
In the past, corporate data was a tightly guarded commodity. A select few employees had access to this data for the purpose of generating insight. This dissuaded others from taking notice of the value that data can hold, as they simply were not able to access it. Even if they did manage to gain access, the raw data was not easily digestible.
The Looker platform allows you to make more data accessible to employees while simultaneously safeguarding sensitive data with identity access management protocols in the cloud. Raw datasets can be transformed into easy-to-digest, real-time infographics that foster collaboration and critical decision-making across the business.

Every business’s cloud migration is different, but there are several best practices that can help you ensure that yours is a success. Make your migration a company-wide project.
