Capturing increasing volumes of data and understanding its business value isn’t really the problem. The issue most organisations are faced with is working with stale data and having it available in time to make crucial business decisions and being able to manage, analyse and put this data to work.

While this will change the way, data is used across businesses, think about the impact these real-time insights will have on the main decision-making hub.

Traditional meetings consist of spreadsheets populated with static and siloed data that’s often a few days old. This means decisions are based on insights that might no longer be relevant or are viewed in isolation, limiting their use and accuracy.

  • Decisions are made based on outdated data which often collected and visualised manually
  • Reliance on spreadsheets unique to each business unit with own IT set-up and data management tools
  • Inability to integrate different data sources, creating a lack of trust in corporate data and compromising reporting quality
  • Missing holistic view – fragmented tools and data sets limit understanding of how decisions might impact performance across operational units
  • Lack of actionable and interactive insights - static presentations fashioned on the past for decision-making

To address this, we need to re-imagine meetings as well as the way we analyse data. We can add real value by bringing in dashboards that enable real-time data insights, detailed visualisations and predictive analytics.

Enter the digital boardroom of SQ1

The digital boardroom brings these capabilities to life, providing a cloud-based platform integrating all data insights captured from across the business. This enables interactive and strategic discussions around all business decisions, with solutions based on ad-hoc and contextual real-time data analysis.

For South African businesses, having an integrated data and analytics platform in the meeting room is a huge advantage in maximising the value of increased data volumes.

Leaders can now stay across all facets of the business from a single control room. This allows them to explore relationships between different sets of data, spotting patterns and trends that create opportunities. By using predictive algorithms, businesses can also forecast different scenarios and make strategic decisions.
