Are you aware of the fact that your company’s data is your biggest, yet a very unique, asset? That is why keeping an eye on its quality should be on top of your list.
Since databases contain large volumes of information it may be extremely hard to keep track of it and check its condition at all times. However, there are certain signs that may help you notice that something is not working as it should.
So, what problems are most common and how to solve them? Read on and find out.
Not optimised, unintuitive systems can affect the performance of your whole business. Not only do they limit the possibilities of your IT equipment, but also slow down the processes within your whole organisation, having a negative impact on business outcomes.
Big volumes of unorganised data are related to poor performance of IT systems. They may slow down your company’s most crucial procedures, having impact on the operation of the entire organisation. Such delays put businesses at risk of lost income, increased operational costs or both.
Do you have easy access to the entire, accurate and up to date information in real-time? This is essential to running a successful business, since because of unsynchronised data customer opportunities can be lost, business processes operate less efficiently and profitability may suffer.
Poor quality of data
Duplicated, inaccurate and obsolete data clutter your space and are no longer a reliable source of information. Additionally, they make running your business difficult because it is impossible to make informed decisions based on irrelevant information.
Too much data
Rapid data growth without the accompanying changes to improve the infrastructure, can also be disruptive to the business processes of the whole organisation. This may lead to expensive migration projects and, in a worse case, limit access to key systems while this work goes on.
If any of the above-mentioned problems sound familiar, database analysis (DBA) may be the solution.
It may help businesses reduce the time of data flow from several hours to just a few minutes, eliminate duplicates and shorten the time of planning processes.
But that’s not all. Thanks to optimising the way data is used within your company, it is possible to speed up most processes and – resulting from this – the performance of your entire core system.
All the information you need will be accurate and available in real-time and, last but definitely not least, you will be able to relax and think less about potential problems that unintegrated data could cause.
