Surrounded by data, with no easy way to get value from it. That’s the dilemma of the financial analyst. By some estimates, analysts waste half their time on data prep instead of financial analysis to derive business insights. To solve this problem, businesses need to knock down their silos and give analysts the power to choose their data sources, define their own calculations and conduct data analysis using the tools they prefer. But to do that, they first need to understand the challenges they face at every step in the data-insight lifecycle, and the best practices that drive a truly effective data-access solution.

In this white paper, you’ll learn:
