Big data is a phrase that represents an extremely large information set that can be utilized, processed, and computationally analyzed in order to find patterns and material about a gathered set of data as a whole. At a simpler level, it is data that can provide answers to questions.
So how do you filter out the noise of bad reviews? By going back to basics: If you know someone who is using or has used a product you’re looking at acquiring, ask them how they like it. Here at Onspring, we’re always happy to refer potential customers to existing ones, even if what is shared between them isn’t 100% sunshine and puppy dogs when it comes to our product.
It’s funny how the mere mention of “contract review” causes tension in a room. In one corner, you have the people who are trying to execute a contract and get down to business. For them, the review and approval process can’t move swiftly enough. In the other corner, you have those who are responsible for going through contracts with a fine-toothed comb. They don’t want to be rushed in their work. It’s too important to get it right—and far too costly if things go wrong.
I recently had the pleasure of co-authoring an E-Book with GRC consultant and “process whisperer” Dan Plato. Dan was one of our most dynamic speakers at Onspring Connect 2017 with his presentation on solution design best practices. We’ve packaged up those best practices, along with a set of templates and samples, into a guide that’s available free on our website.
I’m not a developer or a mathematician. My background is in professional writing. But since my exposure to Onspring, I now create formulas regularly to auto-calculate data points and kick off actions in the system. (Believe me, I’m as surprised as you are!)
We’re excited to announce that Onspring version 5.0 was released this week, and many of our clients took advantage of the new features on the first day they were available. The Onspring Process Automation Platform allows you to create elegant business apps, surveys, reports and dashboards with just a few clicks.
