Eckerson logo.pngImagine the power and impact of shopper-like services for analysts seeking data. Finding the right data quickly is essential in the age of self-service analytics. With ever-increasing numbers of people who analyze data, many of today’s business and data analysts depend on tribal knowledge and word-of- mouth to find the data that they need. They spend too much time finding data, evaluating data, and recreating datasets that already exist. Enterprise Data Marketplaces (EDMs) change all of this, enabling data seekers to find datasets, evaluate fit for purpose, read reviews of others who have used the data, immediately access data, and prepare it for use. 

Join David Wells, Sr. Research Consultant at Eckerson Group, and Paul Barth, CEO of Podium Data, as they explore the benefits of data marketplaces. Building on the findings explored in The Rise of the Data Marketplace, this webinar will examine the need for change, discuss how data marketplaces have revolutionized the ways businesses interact with data, and talk about what the future of data looks like.
