How Data Democratization Can Deliver a Healthy Breakfast

You probably don’t think about data insights democratization, or the availability of social data to everyone, over breakfast. But if you are one of the countless people who enjoys a bowl of Chobani Greek yogurt every morning, the role social data played in your most important meal of the day could be pretty significant.

Recently, Chobani sought new insights for its product marketing. Twitter analysis, predictably, found that its products were quite popular with young adults who are trying to eat well. When Chobani shared these social insights with product development, they immediately saw the value in this data democratization. Chobani’s team, using the same data as its marketers, found that its target market also struggled to teach healthy habits to their children. In response, the company rolled out Chobani Tots and Chobani Kids.

Even as big data and analytics have become industry standards, it hasn’t been smooth sailing. Returning to the Chobani example, the company succeeded because it sought to make the exact same insights available throughout the organization. Executives and other business leaders mandated democratization. More importantly, they showed how everyone in the company stood to benefit by democratizing these data stories. Removing social insights from their own silo and letting different departments access the information gave teams throughout the company intelligence to inform successful strategies.
