Data Integration Myth #3: The CEO and CFO are getting all the information they need.

Sure they are, but at what cost? When one of them asks a question,
their staff and others run off, gather data, manipulate it and produce
a spreadsheet. Is the information accurate? With the recent passage of

transparent data — can you trace it back to its source and explain all
its derivations? How much time was spent hunting, gathering,
reconciling and manipulating the data versus analyzing it?
