Managing Data Reports
Without data collection or utilization of data software reporting, how will you know not only what data you have but how to organize it, track it and analyze it?
The Human Factor
All the human factor translates into as far as the business world is concerned is one word: errors. Not that errors don’t occur with computers; god knows they happen all the time. The term ‘computer glitch’ wasn’t created for nothing after all. But what it does all boil down to is that the statistics comparing human error to computer error are staggeringly in favor of computers; particularly when using the correct software. Trying to keep track of something as small as Post-it notes all the way to index cards; word documents and spreadsheets for a human is virtually an impossible feat. It is a practice in futility. With the right software however, reporting back to you it’s compilation, organization, tracking and analysis of each and every piece of your data, you stand a far better chance in not only the business world but in personal matters such as taxes and personal finances.
Data Analysis Isn’t Enough
Not only is it important to know how to collect and organize your data as well as how to utilize the tracking and analysis of it; there is another factor that weighs very heavily in the minds of those who deal with data on a daily basis. In a word: retrieval. How do you find something once it’s lost? Hopefully you back-up all your data. You do back-up don’t you?
Fortunately for you there is software out there that does both backup and retrieval.
