The one thing I'm starting to notice in the world of BI is that everything is meaningless.
Unless the numbers are accurate.
The business rules / specs could be inaccurate.
The data could have been entered inaccurate.
The report logic could be inaccurate.
The interpretation of the data could be inaccurate.
The timing of the data could be inaccurate.
There is just so much room for error.
We pump out so many reports each and every day.
Makes you wonder if any of them are really 'Accurate'?
All the report requests need to be done yesterday.
However, perhaps we need to S-L-O-W down.
And verify the data is correct.
Otherwise, we're just slinging bad data around.
