Does Simplifying Access to Data Make Us Smarter?

The buzz: Is faster ‘smarter”?

Today, you don’t need to be a statistician to access sophisticated analytics online and run them incredibly fast. But despite the powerful tools available to all size companies, many organizations still spend too much time gathering data and too little analyzing and interpreting it.

Will disseminating these tools to all levels of your company enable superior decisions?

Is data quality still a challenge?

And are your board’s requests for analytics giving them too many choices that bog down their decision-making?

The experts speak:

Derek Loranca, a Fortune 50 Healthcare Company: “Any time scientists disagree, it’s because we have insufficient data. Then we can agree on what kind of data to get; we get the data; and the data solves the problem…And we move on….” (Neil deGrasse Tyson)

Gil Gomez, IBM: “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” (Leonardo DaVinci)

Timo Elliott, SAP: Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.” (William Bruce Cameron – but typically and erroneously attributed to Albert Einstein)
