You’ve done the hard work of identifying your requirements, comparing vendors, and implementing the best analytics solution for your organization – what’s there left to do?
Perhaps the most important step – getting people to use it. Your software investment won’t solve any business problems if no one uses it. To realize the full value from your investments can be challenging. Change is hard! So how do you drive user adoption? Tell a better data story with compelling content driven by insights?
In a Technology Services Industry Association (TSIA) survey, Achieving Enterprise Software Success, 72% of those surveyed said “effective user adoption was the most important factor for realizing software value.” The survey report goes on to state:
“Many software deployments deliver 100% on the business requirements only to fail in the final phase of user adoption.”
Adoption is not the moment you ‘go live’ and everyone starts logging into your new or upgraded application. When you focus on the go-live milestone as the finish line, you miss the real opportunity to successfully prepare for employee proficiency and long-term productivity. Go-live is not the end point, but rather the first step towards building a data driven culture within your organization.
Although there are a variety of metrics to quantify adoption, for most organizations it’s a major problem.
At Yellowfin, we want to make sure you have the best chance of success; we’ve created a step-by-step guide to share our experience as industry leaders around collaboration and building a data driven culture within our global customer base.
