For a certain time, Excel lists and presentations work well. Even when data is collected, paper and pencil always work. But as soon as people start searching for information or ideas, things start to get a bit complicated. At best, all files are stored in a structured and secure way on the company’s own servers. But without knowing where the data has been stored, finding information is often very time-consuming and practically impossible for colleagues. This is where a database makes sense and also simplifies data entry and analysis. But the step from Excel and paper to a database does not only bring opportunities but also risks. It all depends on the appropriate structuring of your data and processes. For this it is necessary to apply a combination of business knowledge and database knowledge. The system must be tailored to your business to increase effectiveness and provide a short term ROI. We want to share our many years of experience in this area with you and help you to successfully manage the digital transformation.
