Why Communication is Key: Integrating Your Data
Your business uses many applications and software already to bring in useful data to grow and better serve your customers. These applications, though they can be very different, can also work together to bring you even more success in learning your market, expanding your business, and making sense of the mountain of data. All of this is done through integrating your data.
According to IBM, data integration is the process of combining “data from disparate sources into meaningful and valuable information.” The data gathered from one application can easily be translated to any other application instantly, connecting all of the software your business uses with one another in a way that keeps up with how businesses work in this day and age.
By utilizing data integration, every bit of data your business receives on a daily basis is available on all platforms instantly, eliminating the hassle of switching back and forth to view, analyze, and act on the data collected.
With the implementation of data integration, and the faster access mentioned above, comes the ability to make business decisions many times faster than was previously possible, letting businesses stay up to date with their market. Data that is integrated and viewable from all sources also offers a more holistic view of your business, allowing decisions to be made based on the whole picture – not just a piece of the pie.
When one piece of data changes within one application, businesses no longer have to enter other enterprise applications to change the data manually. With data integration, these changes and adjustments can be taken care of in moments, making faster turnaround for your business the new reality.
