Every system, application, or software your company has in use consists of data. And in 99% of the cases, this is where the Data Silos arise, applications or software used only by one department and not accessible to other departments.
Do you think that your organization’s data is hidden in different silos? Then it’s time for a solution. The first thing to consider is the type of data that is contained in the Data Silos and what you want to do with this data. Creating separate connections with a lot of custom coding and a high development budget is history. With Data Connectivity solutions such as Alumio and DataSync, we can structure, monitor, and distribute data from one application to another application in a seamless way.
Why to start with Data Connectivity
- Control access, keep data safe, and meet governance expectations;
- Access all data with real-time data federation and monitoring;
- Deliver better customer experience and service with centralized data;
- Reduce costs for manual actions that can be automated.
Why every business should connect their data
Gain customer insights
People get married, get a kid, or move. Their needs change. Incomplete data makes it impossible to maintain up-to-date profiles of your customers. Distributing this data can help you to maximize your ROI without wasting marketing spend.
Improve the supplychain and processes
By connecting data, you can create an efficient supply chain. Import stock, product data and relevant other data directly from your manufacturers into your ERP, eCommerce, or PIM.
Deliver better customer service
Connecting data from different sources can help your company to deliver better customer service or even create a solution that the customer can help themselves with and reduce the costs for your customer service department.
Create a multichannel approach to sales that focus on providing a seamless customer experience whether the client is shopping online or in a brick-and-mortar store.
Connect everything with everything
Actually, it doesn’t matter. Once the application has an API (Application Programming Interface) or is able to export and import data in another way it is possible to use the data and distribute it to other applications and software.
Choose the right strategy and go for it
To start with the integration of applications and dataflows across systems it is highly important to make sure the processes of your company and the purpose of each and every application are clear. At Factor Blue we help you with:
