Your Partner in the Data Literacy Journey

We help organizations achieve better return on data investment by developing their Data Literacy.

 

What is data literacy?

It is the ability to read, work with, investigate and communicate using data.  It’s a critical skill for success in today’s data-driven world and one of the primary reasons why customers don’t achieve maximum return on their data and analytics investments.  Everyone in an organisation needs an appropriate level of Data Literacy to perform their function effectively.
DIGITAL DATA TRANSFORMATION

For many in today’s digital economy, Data Literacy is as important as reading and writing, but we're facing a major skills gap globally. Nekst is on a mission to help individuals and organizations understand, analyze and use data with confidence by assisting organizations to become more data literate

The Data Literacy Challenge

In an era of Digital data transformation, the skills around working with data will be a core requirement to survive and thrive, yet we see a massive lack of basic data literacy skills across organisations. While trying to address the Data Literacy challenge organisations will face some of the following challenges.

The Data Challenge

Volumes, complexity and velocity of data are expanding at an exponential rate with no indication of it slowing down. In this digital data transformation era, organisations are heavily dependant on data and insight in order to stay ahead of the pack and remain relevant in their industry. Merely understanding the importance and magnitude your data does not enable you to maximise the wealth of insights hidden within this data. You need Data Specific Skills across the organisation to overcome this challenge.

The Skills Gap

According to Gartner, levels of data literacy vary significantly across an organisation and a recent international study indicates a mere 25% of individuals feel that they are data literate. 24% - Business Decision Makers; 32% C-level execs; 21% 16-24 years olds feel like they are data literate. Extremely low numbers considering we are in a data driven digital economy. However, 90% of these individuals agreed that data literacy would allow them to more effectively use data in making informed decisions. Majority of individuals were more than willing to invest the time and effort in improving their data skill level.
