In 2019, Gartner surveyed a host of organisations about their data warehousing requirements and 23% of organisations surveyed had plans to implement a data warehouse in the forthcoming 12 months (57% already had them)
Of those 23% we wonder how many did actually move forward with their plans? We all know what disruption this pandemic has caused, with plans being shelved or put on hold indefinitely, but then again there is a massive need by staff right now, more than ever, to access this information and not just from one central setting but a host of disparate settings.
So would you count your company in that 23%, still considering implementing a data warehouse, but just hanging on – still not giving your staff the tools they need to get the job done?
What are you waiting for?
- Is lockdown stopping those plans from coming to fruition?
- Are you waiting for your customers’ businesses to be back up and running again to start implementing?
- Are you waiting for your staff to be back in the office before getting going?
- Are you waiting for the start of the new financial year?
By providing everyone in your organisation with appropriate access to data, you can:
- improve customer service
- increase productivity
- improve decision making
- boost efficiency, making 2021 a far better year
A data warehouse is an investment in the future of your business and getting it right will enable you to unlock the secrets held in your data.
Therefore, if you had written off 2020 as a year for undertaking projects, then by rights, 2021 must be the year when these plans get moving again. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and we need to start planning and implementing now.
