Of the 60 articles published in October on CDAOs that we tracked, we thought you would enjoy this piece from Datanami on Pandemic Driving ‘Back to Basics’ in Big Data, Study Suggests. The article included Alation Inc’s “State of Data Culture Report” with quotes from Aaron Kalb, Chief Data Analytics Officer at Alation, which we excerpted below:

“In its State of Data Culture Report, which Alation officially unveiled yesterday, 300 C-level executives, mid-level execs, and managers at mid-to-large companies (2,500 employee minimum) were asked a series of questions about their data and analytics investments. The survey revealed some interesting data tidbits, including the existence of a “data culture disconnect” in how organizations perceive themselves versus their actual capabilities.

Part of the survey had to do with how the COVID-19 pandemic had impacted their big data projects. When survey-takers were asked what tools they are using more during the start of the pandemic, business intelligence and data visualization tools led the list, with 47% and 43% of respondents indicating their usage was up, respectively, outpacing increases in AI, machine learning, forecasting, and dashboards.

Alation co-founder and Chief Data and Analytics Officer Aaron Kalb has some ideas why this may be the case.

“One thing that I was really interested and excited to see was how COVID has changed behaviors in organizations,” says Kalb, who spearheaded the survey. “In particular, if you look at the distribution of responses, there are folks who talk about new machine learning, new AI, and new fancy data science stuff. They’re excited about that stuff they’re doing internally, and I love that.”

“But the thing that’s seen the biggest increase actually is BI and visualization and cataloging, which you could describe as a back to basics to approach,” he continues. “The idea is, when the world is super uncertain, instead of this attempt to bet on some crazy algorithm…let’s get really good at sourcing the right data and looking at the right data and doing the right thing.”
