Data inundation and information overload have burdened practically every largescale enterprise today, providing great amounts of detail but often very little context on which executives can act. According to the Harvard Business Review, less than half of an organizationís structured data is actively used in making decisions.
The burden is felt profoundly among finance executives, who increasingly require fast and easy access to real-time data in order to make smart, timely, strategic decisions. In fact, 80% of analystsí time is spent simply discovering and preparing data, and the average CFO receives information too late to make decisions 24% of the time.
