Having Soft Skills is Necessary for Success of Data Governance

analytics-marketing-data-technology-ss-1920

For several years now, I have been associated with a company that enables individuals and organizations, implement Data Governance in their systems. An interesting thing that I have come across is that most people presume data governance to be a technical and analytical field. But the truth is, majority of data governance job roles are actually undertaken by business users. I have found out that most of the successful data governance schemes are run as change management initiatives, which are led and supported by the individuals who possess impeccable soft skills.

At the cost of penning clichéd words, things like passion, enthusiasm and the ability to persuade or motivate others to reap achievements for a goal, be it in Data Governance or any other major programme, will definitely work to stack the odds in your favour. For most of you reading this article, the subject of Data Governance may seem too dry and mundane to be passionate about, something that seems too mechanical and uninspiring. But have you ever thought of this, in this way:

If you do not buy, so won’t they!

And that is not a good news for any of the parties involved.

Having strong communication abilities is always a great asset to have. One may need to convince strangers and that too masses of them, influence them on an individual level, when making proposals of new approaches to governing data. History has it, that there is always resistance to change and having soft skills that can soften this blow of transformation, will be a great tool to manage that resistance and transform it into a positive direction.

So, for those who are working on a Data Governance initiative or aspire to work on some form of Data Analytics or Management field, and have a feeling that communication is not your forte. Then i recommend that you let a helpful hand learn it through proper coaching and practice. After all peering at large data sets does not help with social skills! That is definitely understandable. But you must have a strong orator hidden behind those ‘nerd’ glasses who can translate the complexities of data governance and analytics to the language of the commoners.

I strongly recommend that you use a pragmatic approach when implementing Data Governance and decide to apply the same for your soft skills training.

At whatever stage you are currently in your Data Governance and analytics journey do not forget that spending some time to focus on your soft skills will definitely have a significant contribution towards the success of your initiative.

You can learn more about Data Analytics and governance along with soft skill training at DexLab Analytics.

Big Data Analytics is The New Nostradamus of The 21st Century

big-data-addition-01

The debate of US elections did rage on full swing before the shocking results were obtained and Donald Trump was elected the president. There were numerous people tweeting, blogging, and updating other social media platforms with their thoughts, and opinions. But all these were based on the data offered by the data researchers who had a rich source of information about what were the general view of the people about this infamous electoral race.

The power of data analytics is such now that an associate Prof Stantic was so confident about the results that he publicly announced his predictions including for the swing states, and what is more his predictions were right about them as well.

He stated on the issue by saying – “my algorithms showed clearly that based on previous patterns and sentiments in the social media about Trump, by the end of the November 8th would take a massive lead despite it only being a 10 percent chance to win as per all the polling surveys at the time.

He further added, “That a day before that in a public address I was even able to pinpoint the exact states where Trump would win like Florida, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. Someone in the audience even challenged me by going online and checking the data that Hillary was the favorite of 84 percent.

To that all I have to say is people are more likely to be honest about their preferences when telling their friends and family and not just answering polls. It is almost nerve wracking that completely accurate predictions can be made using just social media analysis.”

Even other Big Data analytics specialists have been able to correctly predict the outcomes of the US Presidential elections 2016 much ahead of time. Griffith’s Big Data and Smart Analytics Lab analyzed simple twitter comments during the end of July and were able to predict that if the elections had taken place at the time, Trump would have been the clear winner over Clinton. The results were even shared at that time in an article by The Conversation.

The same analytics lab was able to predict using similar methods and publically announced that the coalition would win over ALP at the Australian federal elections.

Over the past several years presidential and political elections have proved to be ideal test beds for the social media analytics, big data researchers and data analysts which can offer great details on how even the campaign gain more insight about potential voters and try and win over more. “These analytics methods can offer much better insights that simple telephone polling, especially at a time when landlines are barely in use and everybody has a caller-ID”, said professor Stantic.

“And that is why polls leading up to the elections had such an inconsistent outcome.”

He further went on to speak about Big Data by saying – “The amount of information or data we generate is a truly staggering one and that is continuing to grow. This publicly available data is secret treasure-trove of useful information, for those who know how to use it right.”

Professor Stantic further stated that Big Data analytics is a discipline that is faced with numerous challenges that comes with managing the sheer amount of data that no one has noticed. Similar predictions await us for a better and smarter world, about environmental changes of the Great Barrier Reef on Human sensors, gold coast visitor satisfaction etc. which have already been done on projects funded by the National Environmental Science Program and the City of Gold Coast.”

“We can further improve the predictive power of Big Data Analytics as there is a growing need for better, smarter and faster algorithms to perform deep learning on humungous volumes of data, that are being drawn from diverse areas and we are working on it.”

Thus it is evident that Big Data training if made feasible for the right hands can help change the world into a data-driven, smart-opia!
