Start by confirming or challenging existing findings Use augmented analytics tools to confirm or challenge findings surfaced by human interpretation of manual data discovery exercises. Use as first step in identifying patterns Use augmented analytics capabilities as the first step in identifying patterns that can be further explored and presented using traditional data discovery tools and techniques. Vehicle for data governance and stewardship Use augmented machine learning-driven data preparation and data cataloging capabilities to assist and empower the Data Steward role (or help introduce it into the organization for the first time)
