"Data, Data, Data. I cannot make Bricks without Clay."
Posted on November 13, 2014 by Mario Mitchell, Document & Print Solutions Account Executive, TPM
The story was first published in June 1892 but the quote is absolutely topical for today. CLAY is our experience, knowledge and data, BRICKS are our tools on which we build our business.
Data, data, data, Sherlock Holmes quotes in one of Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic stories, and so echoes thousands of businesses the world over.
As Sherlock Holmes says, data (clay) is needed to make your bricks. Your bricks (software solutions) are the products and solutions that hold your business together. Once you’ve collected data from years past, it’s time to index it all together.
How do you create charts and graphs to present data in different ways?
How do you share your findings with other staff members, stakeholders and business partners?
How do you collect comments and survey answers from potential customers, rate them and group them in order to understand them better contextually?
How do you pull out the relevant data from your archives, categorize and discard the rest?
Then, you need to mull it over... What is the data showing? What improvements can you make to your offerings to help your business stand up better in the market? What are people saying about the current climate for your company? What PAIN points do you have in your environment? It can be helpful to write down a list of questions you have and find the answers in the data.
What if I could give you all the CLAY you needed to start laying all the BRICKS necessary to build the biggest empire you desired?
