Let’s face it, your decisions are only as good as the facts. How factual are those slide decks that were created hours before the meetings? If you are one of those few that have spent mountains of money on fancy dashboards, you should take a look at how the sausage factory works behind the scenes. You could have saved money and gotten better results by hiring a couple more analysts.
Our approach is a bit different. We have the notion of vertical integration to data and processes. The graphs you are seeing is real data which you can double click into and be part of what is going on in real-time. You are no longer insulated from the real day-to-day operations through layers of spreadsheets and slideware. You are in control.
