With almost all leading R&D organisations perceiving that data management should be a priority for their business, the ability to understand, interpret and leverage data in a variety of forms has become an essential skill for business professionals. Data literacy helps professionals separate useful information from background noise and enables them to take appropriate and informed actions.
