Embedded analytics matters
ThoughtSpot announces the availability of CodeSpot, a searchable repository of ThoughtSpot blocks and code samples to help developers embed engaging analytics experiences into apps for the modern data stack.
CodeSpot uses the knowledge and experience of ThoughtSpot Everywhere developers, data analysts and engineers to build an ecosystem of shareable assets.
HP delivers insights
In the final breakout session of the day, Juergen Kallinger, director, risk management & analytics at HP, says analysts now spend almost all of their time on data analytics and very little time on data preparation. In the past, it was the other way around.
In regards to moving away from more analysis-driven tools, the vast majority would benefit for more simple-to-use tools that deliver insights on business data.
dbt cloud and open source dbt
A new integration to dbt has been announced to help analytics engineers integrate dbt models into ThoughtSpot’s analytics layer.
It also lets analysts and engineers collaborate on transformation workflows using just their shared knowledge of SQL.
ThoughtSpot customers on dbt Cloud or open source dbt will be able to access the integration directly from the newly enhanced Data Workspace. From there, users can connect to their cloud data platform, create searchable views with their own custom SQL commands, and ship their analytics-ready dbt data model to business users throughout their organization.
Hyper-personalization is key
Disney Streaming’s chief data officer, Jaya Kolhatkar graces the stage with key insights on getting the most out of data.
Her key take home was that businesses should be data literate. Looking at the insights from the data analyzed and using it accordingly is the recipe for using data to improve a business or service.
Poor data literacy is ranked as the second-biggest internal roadblock to the success of the CDO’s office, according to the Gartner Annual Chief Data Officer Survey.
By 2023, data literacy will become essential in driving business value, demonstrated by its formal inclusion in over 80% of data and analytics strategies and change management programs.
