5 Things You Need to Do Now to Keep Your BI Data Intelligent

Nowhere is the “garbage in garbage out” adage more fitting than in business intelligence. If, for example:

  • e-mail addresses are blank or incorrectly entered
  • phone numbers do not include the area code or country code, or
  • states are inconsistently abbreviated (e.g. Wisconsin is abbreviated “WI”, “Wis”, “Wisc”)

Regional BI reports will be incomplete and sales and service teams will be hard-pressed to follow up on new leads and issues.

Auditing & Tracking for Crystal Reports Software: “Be in the Know”

Crystal Report Software is critical to serving, publishing, and scheduling reports.  For smaller firms, only a dozen or two reports need to be published at any given time. In larger firms, thousands of reports could be delivered every day or even every hour. With all of this information rapidly zipping about, how do you keep track of it all? An Excel spreadsheet would be an incorrect answer. Most Crystal Report software should have a built in auditing and tracking system designed to monitor all reporting activities. Knowing the current status of reports (success or failure), who or how those reports were triggered, as well as where those reports were published to are important components of a good auditing system.
