Data, Dashboards, and Analytics
Even though your organization may not know how to use it, the data collected by your organization is valuable. In fact, it may very well make the difference between success and failure.
In today’s new world of work, the opportunity provided by big and medium data is impossible to ignore. Data promises new customers, better experiences, and new opportunities. The promise is delivered by knowing what questions to ask, what data is most important, and how to create action based on that knowledge.
People today are working, operating, playing, learning, and creating faster than ever before, from all types of geographies and devices. Your organization needs to implement the right tools to empower your people, in order to be at your most efficient.
By 2020, there will be 1.5 mobile devices per capita. There will be 11.6 billion mobile-connected devices by 2020—exceeding the world’s projected population at that time (7.8 billion).
How can your organization use data to make decisions?
With the increasing amount of data available to your organization, providing timely access to actionable knowledge is critical to ensure your people can operate at their best. Consuming detailed information in electronic form is not just a pastime–it’s how you can empower your people to be at their most competitive. This, coupled with the pervasiveness of mobile devices, means that your reporting infrastructure has to be as strong as your line-of-business applications.
Once you collect information, understanding how to best use it is pretty valuable. Technology empowers data, and through integration of disparate systems, we help our clients transform data from numbers into insights.
Our clients use dashboards to display metrics that are valuable to their leaders. By integrating data from several sources, such as accounting or ERP, sales and CRM, e-mail, or other line of business applications, we can help create a single view into the truth, making your business faster to react to today’s challenges. Often, dashboards form an important component of our custom web application and SharePoint projects, as the follow-up question to “What should we build?”, is always “How should we measure our success?”
