These are unprecedented times. Organizations around the globe are implementing remote work processes and protocols. This is great to slow the coronavirus outbreak, but the real hero might be data. Information Age brought this topic to our attention in their article, “Data is your best defence against a coronavirus downturn.

We have practiced for emergencies and everyone has (or should have) a well-thought out crisis plan. However, most crises are unique and remain unpredictable in many ways.

Information is that which reduces uncertainty and therefore chaos, right? Good information comes in many forms – analytics, insights, predictions, diagnoses, prescriptions, etc. Information (knowledge) is power. Even investors seem to favor organizations that make significant investments in data and analytics.

There are plenty of data product companies, data marketplaces and specialized analytics solution providers offering alternative data sources that can provide unique insights. It is important to put your trust in a professional with a long history of quality, standards-compliant products. Access Innovations’ solutions are ANSI compliant and implement state-of-the-art technology.
