From Excel To A Modern Analytics Ecosystem
Context: In recent years, many rapidly growing mid-sized CPG (Consumer Packaged Goods) companies have embraced multiple SaaS applications to meet their ERP, CRM, Accounting, and HR system needs. However, when it comes to analytics, these companies often rely on manual MS Excel sheets that draw data from various systems, lacking a structured data foundation. Typically, these companies do not have a CIO/CTO role, and their IT operations are outsourced to external system integrators or service providers.
The use of MS Excel for data management and analysis presents several challenges:
The process is messy, time-consuming, error-prone, and reliant on individual employees.
Insights from data trends and forecasts for improved sales planning are hindered by data fragmentation across disparate systems.
The complexity and pricing of multiple analytics tools deter the implementation of a comprehensive analytics system.
