Data-driven organizations know that the key to success through data is to make it available to as many people across the organization as possible. But every organization’s data is growing at exponential rates and is getting more complicated. This growth and complexity make current data preparation processes more challenging and often inefficient.
To get the right data out to the right people as quickly as possible organizations need to focus improvements on reducing the time required to gather and prepare data.
Your organization’s data is a competitive advantage. But how can you take advantage of it, if you don’t know what you have? How can you leverage it to provide data-driven insights to decision makers? There are several roles in the organization who can help, starting with IT.

Data is stored in business applications, data warehouses, file shares and other locations within the organization.
