Chief Data Officers—tasked with ‘democratizing data’—for use by every level of enterprise decision-maker are now bumping up against the limitations of a chronic shortage of data analysts constricted by data-visualization tools that are now two decades old or (or more). Some of the main challenges with today’s solutions are data stakeholders can’t get dynamic data fast enough, they can’t freely navigate to see data in context, and data isn’t being presented in the way human minds are proven to make connections and gain insight.
