Just having raw data and allowing employees to make business decisions as a result of their analysis needs some controls.
Many organizations have allowed employees to keep their own “Silos of Information” such as Excel spreadsheets or Access databases. The problem with these “Silos” is that this data is usually not current, and available to others required in the analysis process.
We recommend that through the use of Integrated business software, where all employees enter information into a single database be utilized. From this single database, information could be provided to managers and other staff members for their analysis. The caveat is that all data has only one source of truth.
We can provide a number of tools to allow your managers access to this data. Typically, there is no single format that works best in all instances. We will provide guidance on the best methods for your organization.
