Quantifying the Case for Enhanced Data Preparation

The growing scale and variety of data, coupled with the increasing competitive necessity of data-driven decision-making, has made data preparation a focal point of data analyst mindshare. As such, businesses are compelled to invest in new technologies to augment their data preparation activities and allow them to handle greater scales and complexity of data more efficiently.

To provide guidance to data analysts and technology decision makers on investing in data preparation solutions, Blue Hill Research conducted a survey of 186 data analysts. The survey results quantify how data analysts are spending their time, and identify the extent to which data analysts are required to spend time preparing data as opposed to conducting value added analysis.
