Paul's Session Recommendations

Data Literacy Project: Upskilling in Data Literacy, Our Blueprint and What 7,500 People Think About Data Literacy

The Data Literacy Project has just completed a new global survey and report on the upskilling evolution in data literacy. Based on this research, Qlik and Accenture have created a data literacy blueprint providing practical insights and actionable steps to help businesses to deploy data literacy across their enterprises. The authors of the report will talk about their approach and findings from the responses of 1,200+ C Suite executives and 6,000+ employees in seven countries. They will share what the survey participants said about Data Literacy (spoiler they thought it was very important) and what the survey told us about the opportunities, challenges and outright surprises to be found while working to improve the use of data. We'll talk about the experiences that we distilled into the blueprint and how you can improve your companies use of data.

Regeneron's Data Literacy Journey

CDOs, CIOs, and CEOs are recognizing that the top reasons why their data and analytics investments are not reaching their potential are: Lack of understanding of how to use analytics to improve the business, lack of data and analytics skills, and cultural obstacles to sharing data. Data Literacy aims to tackle all of these. Data Literacy is Data Value Realization. At this session, we will explore how Regeneron launched a Data Literacy program targeting the entire 10,000+ workforce.
