Data socialization is the next step in the evolution in data accessibility and self-service analytics allowing individuals, teams and organizations to reshape the way companies think about, and employees interact with, their business data. Data socialization eliminates the common barriers to data access and sharing. It creates a “data utopia” for BI analysts, data scientists and business users that boosts their productivity and speeds decision making.
