Learn how to draw insights from data

Does your organization want to make smarter, faster data-driven decisions? Build greater agility with its data and reports? It takes more than just static reporting—it demands advanced data literacy and strategic reporting aligned to real business needs. The Reporting Academy is a data-driven decision-making learning experience that can teach you how to draw insights from data.

Unlock your business' potential with data-driven decisions

Getting to smart decisions fast takes more than good reporting. It requires improved data literacy—the critical ability to derive meaningful insights from data and apply them in a way that benefits your organization.

Making smart decisions fast takes a deeper understanding of your data and its potential as well as the ability to bring that data to life through storytelling. The Reporting Academy is a data-driven decision-making learning experience that can help accelerate your organization’s path to effective business decisions. Through a collaboration of C-suite, business leaders, and employees who are in the data and pulling reports, you can unlock and channel your data’s potential toward greater opportunities.

Whether it's enabling data-based decisions, building data literacy, or delivering actionable insights through storytelling, the Reporting Academy helps you do more with—and get more from—your data by improving:

  • Speed. Faster decisions come from accurate data and timely reporting.
  • Usability. The quality of your insights depends upon the usefulness of your data.
