We live and work in a data-centric world. Data is everywhere today and it is a part of nearly every business role, process, and activity. Every business professional is both a creator and a consumer of data. The prevalence of data makes data literacy an essential skill set for all business professionals. Data literacy is the ability to understand, find meaning, interpret, and communicate with data. A data literate individual has a working knowledge of where data comes from, how it is organized, how it is managed, and how it is used.

  • Multiple kinds of data resources – warehouse, data lake, etc. – and how each contributes to data management and business value
  • Processes and techniques to find patterns, meaning, and insights through data analysis
  • Techniques for communicating with data – both reading and creating data visualizations
