Trend 7. Data marketplaces enabling data democratization

In the information age, data experts mainly have been responsible for unleashing the power of data within organizations, as others lacked training to handle the humongous amount of data effectively.

The rise of emerging technologies, however, has given more power to non-data analysts to utilize and interpret data. Making data accessible to nonspecialists is the future of data and is called data democratization.

Data marketplaces play a huge role in enabling data democratization. Users are enabled to make important data decisions, like which data is important and why is it important, without reliance on IT experts. The marketplace is dynamic. Users decide what has the most value. Companies can decide on their data investments based on the popularity of data by usage. After purchasing data from the marketplace, users can combine it with other available data to launch powerful data-driven projects.
