If you have been working in marketing, technology, finance, or any industry – you have probably already heard about the importance of data and data analytics tools.
The fearless forecast in the years to come is that data can, in fact, become more valuable than oil. As the rest of the world and most, if not all of the industries known to us continue to go digital – data becomes more valuable in making better business decisions.
Now, the real question is- how do business owners or decision-makers position themselves in the market? How do you cash in? Furthermore, if you are a hundred percent sold on the idea, where exactly do you start?
The simplest way to go about it is to find the right analytics tools that suit your enterprise needs. The good news is that there are several applications that you can use to develop and perform your analytical processes to help you arrive at better strategies while lowering down your costs.
What are The Things to Look for in a Data Analytics tool?
User Interface, User Experience, and Visualization
To address the elephant in the room – one of the reasons big data and data analytics tools remain buzz words or hot topics is unfamiliarity. Most employees and key decision-makers remain unfamiliar with this space. That said, the user interface, user experience, or however you want to call it matters very much. Ensure that its design is friendly and understandable enough even for non-technical users. Keep in mind: this is the tool they will refer to in strategizing and making key decisions.
Agility and Scalability
Let’s put it this way: the best tools to work with are the ones designed to start small and to grow your business. It is important that you can see your analytics in real-time. The insight you can get from agile and scalable tools can help you make quick decisions when it is necessary.
When it comes to business, it all boils down to profits, savings, and expenses. Pricing might very well be the key decision point when choosing the tool that is right for you. The cost should be sustainable for your team’s resources and the cost should be commensurate with the benefits that you’re getting.
