What about the data flows in your organization?
This will give you more overview and control!

Just a question of conscience… What about the data flows in your organization? Is your company mainly using Excel sheets to keep track of, measure and process data? And are these files also floating around everywhere, without you knowing what exactly is where and who has access to the data? In other words: are the data flows in your organization really in order?

Imagine the following scenario for a moment. An employee in the marketing department sends an Excel sheet of customer data to the IT department, requesting that the data be used for a marketing campaign. At that moment, the file is in two mailboxes: both the marketing employee and the IT employee. And the chance that one of these two files will eventually start to lead a life of its own is not inconceivable. Certainly not when, for example, new customers have to be added. Because in which file are the new data processed? And who will remember over time which version is the right one?

Lost the overview

Organizations that work this way run the risk of quickly losing the overview. In addition, data repair in Excel is a time-consuming task and often requires specialist knowledge, which many users do not have. Fortunately, there is now a practical solution available: Talend Data Preparation.
