Data, a drive of productivity

The word “productivity” is formed with Latin roots and means “quality of being able to carry out”.

The concept of “productivity” comes from the Industrial Revolution, when the number of parts produced by a company in a certain unit of time was measured. These two elements, time and the number of goods produced, were essentially what determined whether a company was productive or not.

In the era of the digital revolution, new concepts have emerged that are integrated into traditional models, thus posing a paradigm shift. For example, we can talk about PRODUCTIVITY in terms of Data, thinking about the efficient use of this resource; a current need of companies that requires attention and a qualified approach.

Data: the invisible capital

Good data management has become an invaluable asset, driving a number of tangible benefits in terms of both monetary productivity and time savings for organizations.

As companies accumulate and process massive amounts of information, the ability to effectively manage and leverage that data has become essential to their success and growth.

Key benefits of strong data management

Good data management brings with it multiple benefits. Here are some of them:

  1. Operations optimization: Efficient data management enables organizations to identify patterns, trends and opportunities hidden in their data. This facilitates informed and strategic decision making, which in turn leads to greater operational efficiency. According to a McKinsey study, companies that implement advanced analytics in their data management can improve their operational efficiency by 20-30%.
  2. Personalization and market segmentation: With accurate and up-to-date data, companies can better understand their customers and tailor their products and services more precisely to their needs and preferences. According to the Direct Marketing Association, data-driven personalization can increase revenue by up to 20%. By analyzing their data, organizations can tailor their offerings to individual customer needs. This not only improves the customer experience, but can also increase conversion rates by 10-15%.
  3. Reduced errors and wasted time: Poor data management often leads to errors, duplication of effort and wasted time correcting problems. An Experian report reveals that poor data quality costs U.S. companies more than $3.1 trillion a year. By implementing proper data management, companies can reduce errors by 25-30%, saving time and resources.
  4. Business agility: A Forbes Insights study indicates that 65% of executives believe that business agility is improved with real-time data. The ability to quickly access accurate and reliable data enables companies to adapt more nimbly to market changes and make informed decisions. This is especially crucial in volatile business environments, where the ability to respond effectively can make the difference between success and failure.
  5. Identifying growth opportunities: Through data analytics, organizations can identify opportunities for expansion and diversification that might otherwise go unnoticed. According to IDC, organizations using data analytics are 20% more likely to identify new revenue opportunities, uncover untapped niches, which can result in successful expansion and increase revenue by 15-20%.

In short, robust data management translates into improved operational efficiency, faster and more accurate decision making, reduced margin for error, business agility and the identification of growth opportunities. These benefits, backed by real statistical figures, contribute directly to increased financial productivity and time savings, which are essential for success and competitiveness in today’s business world.
