Today is the Day to Improve Your Analytics

Today is the Day to Improve Your Analytics

You have started your journey of benefits from analytics and you are well on your way to becoming a pro. But there is still a long way to go.

Today is the day to see if, and how, you can do better.

Dealing with analytics and data is an ever-changing journey. The complexity, speed and volume of data continues to increase, while the use for data improves every day.  If you’ve had your analytics and data warehouse running for a few years, or a decade, you know the value of the results you provide to your organization – how simple it is for a business user to get access to performance results. Over the years, your organization has on-boarded a lot of technology and technical debt to enable this simplicity.  As the years have passed, the project capital cost has turned into a growing operating expense.

There are several factors in how your analytics journey has taken a turn:

  • The system was built in pieces through project delivery to meet changing conditions or to get further details after initial success
  • The team that started your organizations analytics journey is no longer here
  • There have been multiple team designing, developing and support the platform and establishing their own processes with the skills they came with, or even learned on the job “that’s just how this is done”
  • The speed and changes required to support a dynamic organization has led to some shortcuts, “good enough”, and acceptance of mediocre: “excellent isn’t in our budget”

Today is the day.  Now is the time.
