How to promote a Data Literacy Program in the Enterprise

Tuesday, May 14, 3:00 PM - 03:45 PM
Room: Tate Ballroom 3-4

John Bunn - Director, Compass Excellence Center, CSL Behring LLC 
Milad Toliyati - Director of Axis Academy, Axis Group LLC

We haven't seen many enterprise level data literacy programs out there since the concept is relatively new, but it's *crucial* to understand that effective Data Literacy is not only about competency and skills development. There is a prerequisite to creating an effective data literacy program. A complete program operationalizes analytics by enabling technology and business units. The program should focus on governance through education, providing the right data and tools to the right people, social learning for business, and adoption and rollout strategies. There are several components to a successful Enterprise Data Literacy Program, which we have termed the 5Cs of Data Literacy: Culture, Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, Competency. This 5C model helps compartmentalize the various components you need to build a successful program. 

This session includes: 
  • Overview of the Enterprise Data Literacy Program
    Introduction to 5Cs of Data Literacy
  • How to implement a Data Literacy program in the enterprise
  • Examples of Data Literacy activities at CSL Behring

Building an Analytics Operating Model

Wednesday, May 15, 2:30 PM - 3:15 PM
Room: Grapevine Ballroom C

Jerry DiMaso - Vice President Enablement, Axis Group

Self-service has upended the world of Analytics. It has increased internal demand for analytics, expanded the need for technological and creative scalability, and escalated the urgency for knowledge management and data literacy.

Successful organizations treat analytics as a living ecosystem where business units plug into a constantly-evolving Center of Excellence that ensures quality and security of data. The Analytics Enablement journey starts with building capabilities for technical teams by setting standards and putting simple processes in place to educate all contributors and promote governance. Technical teams should enable business units through transparent communication, proper resource orchestration, and tools to track adoption and outcomes. In this session, we will walk you through how Analytics Enablement can help organizations become outcome-driven.
