Fact Sheet: Integrated Insights
Streamlined and automated process of transforming data into actionable insight: collect, harmonize and distribute external data e.g. POS, syndicated or study data for timely use by functions along the decision making process.
Consumer Goods companies have historically operated with factory shipment data only; today retailers increasingly share store level POS, inventory and price information, additionally syndicate data suppliers provide competitive insights. Many companies have approached the use of data in a siloed way, usually around specific point problems. As the sources of data increase, so do formats, this volume of multi-data and the varying granularity in which it is provided makes the single point approach unsustainable.
