Each department has its own data. How can you unite these silos?
Information is the lifeblood of a modern business, and it has to flow freely. The idea that data from one department could be very helpful in another is hardly radical at this point. However, putting this concept into use through improved content sharing and integration could prove to be the difference between struggling with poor industry awareness and accurately reading the market.
Many sections benefit
When deciding which departments need to have access to corporate information, leaders may gain from assuming a broad view. Rather than taking the risk of leaving a section without the capability, it is likely better to assume that those professionals can indeed make good use of the data on offer. The benefits each team takes from this may differ in details, but the broad strokes are the same: The more resources they have, the better decisions leaders can make.
Ensuring automatic access
You likely have plenty of information to give these personnel - but can you send it effectively? If you have a component in place such as Progress® Easyl™, the answer will likely be yes. Soon to be available as part of the Progress Pacific™ Platform-as-a-Service offering, this solution is a key connective element between the many different departments that can benefit from using content collated throughout the overall business infrastructure.
