Where is that data?
This is what data management nirvana looks like:
When the question starts with "Where is the data that tells us...
- ...how many members we have?
- ...who is on that committee?
- ...what are the attendance numbers for our upcoming event?
- ...what Wes's email address is?
The answer is always the same: "It's in the database."
Not "It's on Joanne's desktop" or "Larry has that in a spreadsheet" or "It's on a shared drive." But "It's in the database."
That's what data management nirvana looks like.
