Whether you call it self-service analytics or self-service business intelligence (BI), there has been much discussion about the perils, myths, promises, and prospects of successfully building self-service capability. Going forward, I’ll use the phrase “self-service BI” but you are welcome to substitute the words “self-service analytics”.So, is self-service BI actually attainable or just snake oil?

To quote Hemingway: change happens gradually, then suddenly. We see this in the world around us. Think back to 2019. There’s no denying how much the pandemic reshaped our professional and personal lives, with technology driving this change at massive scale. Yet these changes, despite their ubiquity, are really the culmination of trends like cloud and automation that were well underway.

I’ve encountered a thousand different problems with spreadsheets, data importing, and flat files over the last 20 years. While there are new tools that help make the most of this data, it's not always simple. I’ve distilled this list down to the most common issues among all the databases I’ve worked with. I’m giving you my favorite magic fixes here. (Well, okay, they aren’t really “magic” but some of them took me a long time to figure out.)

Businesses have been scaling rapidly in the cloud, driven by the pandemic and lured by the promise of agility and flexibility. But here’s a dirty little secret anyone who works in data knows. Despite the value of the cloud, tons of data hasn’t made it there. So, where is it? Spreadsheets. Still the stalwart workhorse, hero, and bane of the business world. We all love how Google revolutionized this world by bringing spreadsheets to the cloud.

SQL is the universal language of data modeling. While it is not what everyone uses, it is what most analytics engineers use. SQL is found all across the most popular modern data stack tools; ThoughtSpot’s SearchIQ query engine translates natural language query into complex SQL commands on the fly, dbt built the entire premise of their tool around SQL and Jinja. And within your Snowflake data platform, it’s used to query all your tables.

I’ve been following the Streamlit framework for a while, since Snowflake announced that they would acquire it to enable data engineers to quick spin up data apps. I decided to play around with it and see how we could leverage the speed of creating an app along with the benefits that ThoughtSpot provides, especially around the ability to use NLP for search terms. Streamlit is built in Python.

The difference between consuming data and actioning it often comes down to one thing: effective data visualization. Case in point? The John Snow’s famous cholera map. In 1854, John Snow (no, not that one) mapped cholera cases during an outbreak in London. Snow’s simple map uncovered a brand new pattern in the data—the cases all clustered around a shared water pump.

This agency leads ongoing research in public health, environmental health, and forensics for the country of New Zealand. Like many other CDAOs, her role is relatively new.

Today, just 24% of organizations say they've succeeded at becoming data-driven.* This is a challenge many data leaders are still struggling to solve despite increasing demand for data-driven insights from business users. Migrating to a cloud data warehouse is a good first step-and many have done so-but introducing new technology is not the same as ensuring adoption. To truly reap the benefits of your cloud data warehouse investment, you need an equally fast, scalable, and easy-to-adopt analytics solution to make your cloud data available to all.
