We think there’s got to be a better way…

Data is one of the most valuable and significant assets of any company. Businesses depend on their data for their day-to-day operations and to help set their future strategic directions.

When companies implement new technology applications, the transformation and modification of data, as well as the influx of external data from outside sources or other legacy applications, creates challenges related to data quality and rapid assimilation of data. The need to integrate with legacy applications could be as basic as connecting to a simple Access® database or it could involve bi-directional integration amongst multiple large-scale legacy applications such as SAP®, Oracle, etc.

One of the most difficult parts of building any CRM System is the process of extracting, transforming, cleansing, and loading this data from the source system and integrating it seamlessly with your® solution. Performing ETL of data in real-time introduces additional challenges.

Typically, this process is a roundabout, confusing, expensive and laborious exercise. Specifications are not accurate, programmers don’t clearly understand the business issues, and programs can be buggy and ineffective. The end result is the overall user base becomes frustrated and begins to lack confidence in the team and even the CRM solution.

At Black Iron, we are convinced that this kind of work doesn’t have to be painful, costly and of low value. We think it can be streamlined and focused on your business.
