Most organizations have more data than they know what to do with, yet they know that their data is an untapped gold mine for better decision-making, potentially millions in savings, and eliminating every blind spot in their organization.
So how do organizations get from having data to actually using it? Strong data strategy.
Data strategy helps organizations align every process and resource with their goals to get the most out of their data.
Your data should deliver crucial insight at the moment you need it most, but in order for that to happen your data pipeline and tools need to work seamlessly.
5 signs you need a stronger strategy:
- You use data to find out what went wrong, rather than plan future decisions
- It takes so long to get reports that employees lose motivation to look at them
- You can’t easily set and monitor KPI’s until it’s too late or the project is over
- Data is regularly missing, out-of-date, or inconsistent
- It’s difficult to find the data you need on your own
Your data should be right there when you’re ready to make a decision, and that’s only possible when you closely align your business goals and systems through strong strategy.
A strong data strategy will:
- Clarify what data you have and what data you need
- Simplify how employees find, use, and share data
- Reduce the reporting burden on IT (Think faster reports- for everyone.)
- Improve data access and security organization-wide
- And establish clear vision for how everyone in your organization can use data to make better decisions
