Transformation

Process Tempo allows multiple users to search, discover and explore data providing a much more robust alternative to Excel spreadsheets.

  • Data is much more transparent and easier to access

  • The lineage of the data is much easier to understand (how old is it? Where did it come from?)

  • Fewer errors

  • Less manual effort

  • Greater consistency and greater reuse

Leadership frowns upon the overuse of spreadsheets as they are not only error-prone and require manual efforts, they can also be a security risk.
 

  • "My colleague and I have two different versions of the same spreadsheet. Which one is correct?"

 

  • "The compliance team was sent out to collect data from the business. Everyone used a spreadsheet to store the information they collected. When we came back together a few weeks later we realized the entire exercise was a waste of time. Our methods, our data and the structure of the data was vastly different across the board. There was no consistency. We should have collaborated on this first."

 

Problem: Too Much Data, and It's Growing

Solution

The growth in available data creates a massive challenge for those whose job it is to make use of this data for decision making. The more data the greater the complexity. The greater the complexity, the greater the effort to turn data into insight. Process Tempo solves this problem by making data easier to understand, organize and discover.

Benefits

With data easier to understand, users such as Business Analysts can find what they are looking for much faster. With data easier to understand and discover, less time is spent on searching for data that can be used to solve a particular problem and less time is spent on converting this data into something usable.

Transformation

Business Analysts are often frustrated by the challenge of finding data that they need to solve a particular problem. Does this data even exist? How difficult is it to access? How much of a challenge would it be to transform into something usable? In many cases, their reputation is on the line when the boss expects a fast response. They often do not appreciate the effort the analysts must put in to address their requests. A slow response can be career-limiting!

Bonus: These are some comments users have made about how PT has helped:
 

  • "We update the data monthly because we clean and massage the data manually. Now, we can update the data more regularly as the manual effort is significantly reduced!"
     

  • "The single source of truth is in an HR system that our team doesn't have access to. We need another single source of truth. It's the only way to go until we get the access we need." 
     

  • The API that we need is in the IT Department's backlog and is estimated to be built in about 6 months. We can do it in Process Tempo as a temporary solution."
