XLNT Consulting - "Turning Data Into Dollars"
Help! We’re drowning in data! In just 10 years we have gone from measuring file size from Kilobytes, to Megabytes, to Gigabytes and now Terabytes. Are you extracting full value from all the data you hold?
Intelligent use and management of data has become a key competitive differentiator. Storing data is easy and cheap nowadays. Retrieving large volumes of data is not so easy, and making the best possible use of it is even harder. Are you managing your data for what it is: a key strategic resource? Does this follow from your data strategy?
XLNT Consulting is committed to helping companies make the best possible use of all the data they (could) hold. We do this through
- improving the value and quality of available data
- using data in smarter ways
- helping your employees get the best mileage from your data
