Does Connecting Different Management Systems Really Work?
Information system integration is often used by large organizations as a means of over-arching data management and access. The purpose of connecting management systems within a business is typically in preparation for the future. The process of connecting data management systems can take years based on the size of the organization and the number of IT networks being combined into one network. Switching from several different ancillary applications to only a few ancillary applications is highly complicated and involves a lot of moving parts.
Technology, People and Process Integration
If a business chooses to connect different management systems the traditional, manual way, creating and sticking to timelines plays a vital part in getting things done. Because bringing several sets of data together manually is such a long and potentially complicated task, teams should set far-reaching goals. Setting a goal for your group to achieve every day, ideally a seemingly unrealistic one, forces IT teams to work at much faster rates than they would have guessed they could have. Once the process integration is complete, information exchange can finally be enabled.
The Many Challenges
Developing and effectively getting an entire corporation or organization to adopt new standard operating procedures as well as learn new best practices for successfully functioning on an integrated management system is a challenge data management IT teams often face. Unfortunately, human error is still also a large risk in the manual data manipulation and integration process. There’s always a possibility of duplication of information, loss of data and a number of other issues. The larger the company, the larger the probability of hitting one or several of these speed bumps. All IT professionals can do is hope they catch all of them in time to correct them before going live with the new data management system.
Another challenge is keeping an open and broad enough line of communication to be successful. Without everyone knowing what’s going on or understanding how to utilize the new business intelligence tools they’re being given, the new management system is bound to fail. This overall process obviously requires a lot of resources and gives IT personnel a lot of opportunities to take a wrong turn. There are business intelligence tools available that can help organizations avoid these typical challenges that come along with connected management systems.
