Following on from my interview with Jordan Morrow – Global Head of Data Literacy – from Qlik I have put together a list of data literacy resources. You can use these to further not only your own data literacy but to get the discussions flowing within your organisation: Continue reading “Data Literacy Resources”
Qlik Sense June 2018 is now available! I’ve taken a look at some of the new features in the following video:
One of the undoubted highlights of Qonnections 2018 was Jordan Morrow’s keynote speech on Data Literacy and after attending one of his breakout sessions on the subject we all walked out into the Florida sun full of inspiration. Jordan is the Global Head of Data Literacy at Qlik, the man tasked with taking on one of the key issues of our time, but what exactly is data literacy and why is it so important?
