1. Integrate All of Your Data
Regardless of the size of your organization, chances are, you’ve got data everywhere, and a lot of it. It’s not just living in spreadsheets anymore, but it’s also stored in the cloud and on-premise data warehouses. It’s called big data for a reason. Social media data, transactional data, customer records, and web analytics are just a few examples of mushrooming information that can’t be properly analyzed in a spreadsheet. Excel and Google users often find themselves forced to use subsets of data for ad hoc analysis—which will only yield a glimpse of the answers they seek. The reality is, with just a spreadsheet, at a million rows, you’re going to hit a brick wall.
Whether you’re filling your spreadsheet to its breaking point or working with smaller data sets, running sophisticated macros and calculations in a spreadsheet can often bring a program to its knees—leaving you waiting and miserable. You are too busy to spend cycles sorting out which set of data you can live without or budgeting time to refresh your calculations.
For the most accurate data insights, it’s important to have the capability to use as much data as is necessary to paint the whole picture.
Connect to and analyze all of your data, no matter what the size or where it lives— and make sure the process is fast.
