Corporate Performance Management
One of the primary functions of management is to ensure that their organization is performing well. In order to determine whether performance is optimal is to make measurements and compare them against known parameters and business goals. One of the key tools available to the management assessing performance levels is the reporting that they receive from their data systems. If life were simple, this would be a straightforward case of extracting data that is already formatted and structured ideally for this purpose. As we know, organizations and the systems they use to store data are far from simple in reality. This is caused mostly by hardware and software being marketed and implemented on the basis of the functionality at the user end of the operation. They are usually not designed with data integration in mind and the structure of stored data is rarely conducive to the creation of business intelligence. The real value of that data to those managing an organization comes from having the right data, represented in an understandable form that can be used to assess corporate performance and other metrics, measurable by the data the corporation has access to, owns, and generates.
Producing this information in such an accessible, digestible, and useful form is an important service that Alok offers as a professional consultant and experienced software and data engineer.
