The advent of Software-As-A-Service cloud technology has opened up new opportunities to automate, streamline and deliver data-driven insight to the worlds of Finance, HR and Procurement. But this revolution brings with it a new wave of risks; the top three centre on integrations, data and testing. In this episode, we look at the first of these technology risks, how it can be mitigated, and explore the vital role that reporting and integrations play in the delivery of your business transformation.
'Both integrations and reporting are ways of transmitting data. Integration is point to point - it's data transmitted from one system to another. Reporting is data transmitted to a human'.
Key Takeaway: The role that reporting and analytics play in the delivery of your business transformation.
