What is data culture and how can it be implemented in a company?

All companies know that in order to be competitive from now on, they must take a different course from the traditional one. Generally speaking, those organizations that have been best able to react to the pandemic situation have been those that have been able to make decisions based on the data they have in their possession.

To achieve this, it is essential for companies to have a data culture with which to make decisions based on objective information. 

What is a data culture? 

Data culture is nothing more than a set of group beliefs and behaviors of those people who value and promote the use of data to make a positive leap in decision making. In this way, data is integrated into the mindset, identity and day-to-day life of an organization. 

In a time of business uncertainty, a data culture enables teams to access the information they need to rely on tangible data to overcome business challenges. 

What does data culture achieve? 

An organization that has a data culture adopts data-driven behaviors and aligns this information and its analysis with the results it achieves. In addition, teams are better able to prioritize business processes. 

A company with a data culture also fosters collaboration and participation, which moves human capital in the direction of a common goal: leading with data.
