Data democratization

Data democratization is the process of enabling many users across a business to easily access and use data. Previously, only data experts could handle data, making it difficult for other departments to make data-driven decisions. With the rise of data democratization, various users — including non-experts — can use tools and resources to analyze, interpret, and leverage data. Widely-available data enables business innovation, especially as it migrates to the cloud, which also increases data security risk. Learn more about cloud transformation and data democratization.
