Database Integration Tips
Thanks to Steve Sanchez for a record-breaking workshop session on Making Database Integration Work For You! As a partner with InfoSolve, Inc., Steve understands the challenge of converting data into useful information. He highlighted three benefits in the recent workshop:
- Time savings are realized. Entering the same information is a waste of time and is an inefficient way to manage data.
- Errors are reduced. Entering information twice increases the chance for errors. Database integration acts as the "middle man" so information is transferred - error free.
- Service is enhanced. Integrated databases help companies find and give information quickly. That helps enhance service quality.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
