Two mature international product companies were purchased by a private equity company and merged. Post-merger they brought in a “Big 4 Consulting” company to help stand up the new organizations operations. As part of the charter of activities, they put new systems in place to help the new integrated company scale and run their business with data.

Business executives can make better business decisions when data management strategies allow them to see the big picture.

“All businesses use various systems and tools to support their processes. Over time systems change or are replaced and people figure out ways to keep things in sync with their evolving business processes. For example, a lead in a CRM is converted into a customer and then manually entered into an ERP so they can bill. I call these ‘swivel’ integrations and every company has them. The problem is that they are error-prone and cause major manual effort for your company. At 5P, we are experts at leveraging technology to drive and enable your data integration strategy to ensure proper revenue management and reduce operating cost.”

How can data integration enable businesses to drive value?

Modern data integration solutions play a vital role as it enables non-technical business users to make customer data connections – without relying on IT excessively. By creating connections with customers, organizations can address their needs faster and deliver on them without IT support. Ultimately, organizations will be enabled to grow revenue and expand market reach.

Who needs data integration?

Data integration isn’t just for large enterprises. Just about every organization can benefit from a data integration strategy, because every single business needs to be able to use its data to compete effectively. Most businesses use multiple applications and platforms to support their business, such as CRMs, accounting applications, asset management systems, and even standard spreadsheet software. Data is locked in silos in each of these applications, which can result in disconnections and miscommunication between departments or processes. If important decisions are based on misinformation resulting from these disconnects, the results will be less than optimal or even detrimental to a business.

Does Data Integration fix My Data?

The process of data integration does not actually clean, validate, or fix your data. Data integration is the movement of data from different sources. Whatever information is input into the system, is the same data that is integrated through the applications. This means that the validation of information needs to happen before the information is sent. Therefore, data integration does not alter the data because the true value of the data should reside where the data was originally created.

Is data integration a strategic investment?

Absolutely! Adopting a strategic data integration approach is an investment toward digital transformation. This process involves adopting a strategy to ensure the solution perfectly fits the needs of your business. A data integration solution is an investment toward the future and when accompanied by a well-rounded strategy and approach, it will optimize business operations. The majority of challenges associated with data integration are the results of weak or inadequate integration strategies.

why is data integration important?

Data integration is the process of consolidating data from different sources into a single dataset. The goal is to enable users to access and exchange data across the spectrum and deliver the promised value sooner. Data integration enables users to access data to identify different trends and insights required to make decisions.

what are some benefits of data integration?

In addition to solving certain business problems, data integration can help save time and boost efficiency by making all of a company’s stored information more readily accessible and communicable between different business units or teams. Establishing clean and accurate data is at the core of any data integration strategy. Data integration can also help businesses find ways to lower costs and improve profitability.
