What can we learn from the use of data during the COVID-19 crisis.
We often visit CEO’s, Heads of Transformation, culture “experts” and performance leads, to talk about transformation and performance improvement. We often hear data is the new golden bullet that will help them be smarter, do a better job, drive more revenue or provide a better service.
Organisations will spend in some cases many millions of pounds, euros or dollars setting up data warehouses, data cleansing, data analysis and data mining systems. Data seems to have become the wonder drug that people believe will transform their businesses overnight.
Being well-led in times of crisis needs different ways of working
I’ll tell you what’s scary. Over the last 4 weeks, I’ve seen massive government departments, big corporate businesses, care homes and other critical front-line organisations spin up spreadsheet after spreadsheet to help them manage what is now the fastest-changing operational environment they’ve ever seen.
Robert takes us through InPhase’s rapid response to covid-19
How are you doing?
When COVID-19 first hit, I wanted to make sure all of our customers, as well as our staff, were OK.
We setup a process to call all of our customers and asked them “how can we help” (many of our customers are key service providers; the NHS and health service providers, Local Authorities, Fire Services, Social Housing providers). They all said “we are really struggling with understanding what’s happening with our workforce. We are finding it difficult to manage key actions and who has to perform the high priority actions with so many people going off sick and self-isolating.” Mobile working clearly added to the complexity.

Quickly respond to challenges in short timeframes using industry leading software
Agile working involves responding in short time-frames to changes. Those changes may be fresh knowledge that comes from new data insights, or internal re-organisations, priority changes, unplanned resource availability changes, or a host of external factors.

There is a shift we have seen by our customers to integrating the Project Office reporting and information into the overall enterprise performance management of the organisation.
The Project Office is often the real driving force for change and improvement in any organisation. From complete transformation with mergers, restructures, divestments, to major asset change, to process changes, to specific operational projects.

InPhase winners for Best for Intelligent Software Solutions 2017
When Business Intelligence becomes intelligent and more than the sum of its parts!
Last year we won best integrated BI and Performance Solution. This year honours us with Best Intelligent Software. Why?
In most cases, the main reason it can take so long to resolve issues, is that organisations have reporting periods that can only serve up the problems long after they have happened, it can take ages to get a plan sorted and it takes even longer to find out if it actually worked!
Too much demand, too many patients, not enough resources
The challenge that the NHS faces today is variously described as: too much demand, too many patients, not enough resources.
This blog examines these issues identified by the systems already in place in the NHS and suggests how we can act on the performance management and BI information as part of addressing this classic dilemma: demand is clearly greater than supply.
The importance of providing context with visualisations
Recently several high profile companies have heavily sold the idea that a great looking, fast data visualisation the greatest business intelligence.
It is certainly great to have beautiful visualisations of data, but that is less than half the picture if you need to manage the business better.
What's really the point?
I was scanning through LinkedIn earlier when up popped an update with a great picture of 3 massive interactive screens showing a bunch of interactive charts, graphs & wizzy visualisations. It was posted by someone from SAP proclaiming this is what the future boardroom will look like.
