Executive Boardroom Session | Data Enablement Journey to Democratization

Data Democratization enables individuals or teams across an organization to use, transform and analyze data, relying on various technologies and tools to do so. These are bottom-up – or “democratized” – initiatives that are driving innovation and value. This includes development of Data Products that give business users greater context for their needs, as well as new opportunities driven by Generative AI and Large Language Models (LLM).

This executive boardroom session discuss the foundational requirements of developing data democratization and data productization to support business outcomes and the potential opportunities for leveraging Generative AI as an accelerator for data management and analytics teams.
