What is Data Activation?
All business teams from sales and marketing to support and customer success, need relevant, accurate, and real-time customer data to add critical context to the software they already use on a daily basis. Data Activation is the final step in the Modern Data Stack. Data Platforms like Snowflake are extremely efficient at consolidating all of your data into a centralized platform, transforming it for analytics, and ingesting it into your BI tool of choice so you can derive powerful insights. However, there’s a core problem: dashboards and reports are only ever used to make high-level business decisions, and data warehouses are only accessible to your technical users who know how to write SQL. Data Activation eliminates this problem by syncing the data in your warehouse directly back into the tools of your business users.
Data Activation is the method of unlocking the knowledge sorted within your data warehouse, and making it actionable by your business users in the end tools that they use every day. In doing so, Data Activation helps bring data people toward the center of the business, directly tying their work to business outcomes.
