The Power of Data Transformation in Analytics

Featured Image

In the realm of modern business intelligence (BI) analytics, data transformation is essential to drive informed decision-making. As businesses gather more and more data, it’s crucial to convert that raw data into reliable information. In our previous posts, we’ve talked about what data transformation is, how it plays an integral role in modern BI, and the power data transformation can have when it comes to those important BI decisions. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at how transformed data acts as an accelerator for decision-makers and how it can unlock those important insights in BI analytics, helping you and your team get the most out of your data.

Transformed Data in Analytics

Transformed data, at its core, is the conversion of unstructured, raw information into a refined format that is necessary for effective decision-making. Unlike raw data, transformed data supports analysis and provides a deeper understanding of changing business landscapes. Raw data can be erratic, while transformed data is stable and offers opportunities for comprehension and examination.


Accessibility and Usability

It’s important for data analysts, BI experts, and the other “data users” on your team to be able to access transformed data seamlessly. User-friendly interfaces in BI analytics and visualization tools, such as Qlik or Power BI, play a crucial role in democratizing data, allowing users to extract insights without the need for extensive technical expertise. Accessibility and usability are the keys to unlocking the true potential of transformed data.

It's not enough for data to be transformed; it must also be readily available and comprehensible to those who stand to benefit the most. The democratization of data is also the democratization of decision-making, where insights are no longer confined to the realm of technical experts, or the “data movers” on your team, but are accessible to all who need to make informed choices.

Driving Actionable Insights

Transformed data is not a mere halfway step; it is the driving force behind actionable insights. Businesses leveraging transformed data can witness a significant shift in decision-making. Real-world examples abound, showcasing how transformed data has empowered organizations to make strategic moves, backed by concrete, data-driven evidence, such as Tranter, a global manufacturer of gasketed and welded plate heat exchangers. But how do you get the refined, reliable data that data analysts can trust when the time comes to make those important business decisions?
