One of the major flaws in Business Information Systems (BIS) in general use is that each new operational need has typically generated an ad hoc application: ERP, CRM, EDM, directories, messaging, extranet and so on. BIS development has been driven by applications and processes and this has led to an ‘add-on’ effect similar to piling one box on top of another and trying to carry them all.
With each new application comes a new isolated data silo that the company needs to manage. Accessing relevant information is the key to keeping your business on track, and when your data is spread across several locations, it impacts both decision-making and implementation of your business strategy.
So it is vital that data is consolidated and readily available.
How to Manage your Data more Effectively
Centralising your data is the key to solving the data proliferation problem. Centralising gives employees easier access to the information they truly need to do their jobs. To really get the most out of your business data, you need to think about access to information within a unified space that receives data from every source in the company.
Various solutions have appeared over the past twenty years that attempt to tackle the problems raised by data proliferation. Space-Time Research (STR) embarked on a research and development project in 2012 to develop a system to address the task of capturing and mining quantitative data. STR also looked at the possibility of a data-sharing, self-service model where users had the ability to share their data with others.
The result was SuperDataHub, a self-service kiosk in the cloud.
SuperDataHub is a Cloud-Based Solution Built on STR’s SuperSTAR Platform
No more deploying and managing individual client applications and data within your organisation. There’s just one copy on the central cloud-based server. This means reduced spending on technology infrastructure plus users always have immediate access to the newest features.
Why Choose SuperDataHub?
To place data at the heart of a business, it must be placed within a central location where the data can be pooled from all different sources. The SuperDataHub system allows a wide variety of data to be centralised, blended and shared without the high infrastructure costs usually associated with installing BIS systems.
