Housekeeping / Data Validation
The best user interfaces and automation tools are no match against poor data.
When users cannot rely on the data they receive, they will resort to manual processes and abandon the new technology. If you know your existing foundation is not healthy, translating data into a solid structure will be the first step.
Understanding your goals for the platform and being ready to make a big leap in order to achieve those goals is essential for success when taking on any new technology. Know what data needs to be collected to ensure your goals are met and understand what needs to be fixed in your current foundation to make the project successful. Partnering with a new technology with a strong foundation will improve data integrity throughout your organization.
