Included in Full Research

- Data discovery enables business users to perform their own analysis, which makes many BI leaders fear it will jeopardize their efforts to provide a single version of the truth
- Data discovery enables business users to build their own insights, so BI leaders must work with business units to identify and train data discovery users
- The use of data discovery could result in errors from unreliable data or misleading insights, so BI leaders must identify which users can access which data, certify sources and validate user-produced content
