Organizing Analytics

It's All About the Data

As companies begin to operate and grow, they should also start to collect data. Initially, most companies use projections based on many factors, from industry research to marketing research, and everything in between to estimate their future success.


Sometimes those projections are very close to the outcome, and other times they are way off. Until the business has been operating for some time, many of the company's projections are merely educated guesses. 

Gathering data can help a company thrive, but knowing what to do with that data is key. Collecting data can be a huge indicator in determining the future success of the company. By organizing analytics, companies equip themselves with the tools to make more strategic and informed decisions. It's all about the data. 

A company's reporting structure plays a key role in how its data is viewed. Strategically organized analytics takes information and arranges it so that analysts can easily read and understand at first glance; it tells a story. Great analytics tools can and should also be custom designed with specific users in mind. 

While having data to analyze is vital, having the right team is also very important. A group of skilled analysts, either in-house or outsourced, will guide staff in making the best decisions throughout the analysis process. Experienced analysts will read data, assess which data is most valuable, and make plans based on the data. They will also be able to decide which strategies are most appropriate for the company's goals and choose the ones that work best. 

Knowing and understanding data is equivalent to knowing and understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the business. Knowing the company's strengths allows management to build and scale the business. Likewise, knowing the company's weaknesses allows those in decision-making positions an opportunity to reassess and restructure the goals and plans, turning those weaknesses into strengths. 

Better organizing skills help employee collaborations to flow more smoothly. It makes it easy to point out where the problems are located and provide an opportunity to fix them. In the end, companies that take the time to organize their analytics reduce costs and deliver better outcomes, set more realistic benchmarks for success, and are more aware and able to develop systems and fill the missing holes in their systems.
