Data skills are now essential for almost every role in every organization. Companies need more people with the ability to interpret data, to draw insights and to ask the right questions in the first place. Organizations that promote data literacy can achieve net gains in data quality, collaborative communication, innovation and work process efficiencies. Enterprise Times brought this topic to us in their article, “Data Literacy – What it is and why it matters.”

Over the last five to ten years, the data skills we need have evolved. These are skills that anyone can develop, and there are now many ways for individuals to upskill themselves and for companies to support them, lift capabilities and drive change.

Managing data is key for findability. Metadata makes digital content findable. However, findability works only when a proper taxonomy is in place. Proper indexing against a strong standards-based taxonomy increases the findability of data. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
