Flipping a coin is a common method of making a decision randomly. But did you know that coin tosses are not actually random? They only seem that way because people do not have access to all the necessary information to predict what the result will be. Assuming you could figure out and control all the variables that control the outcome of a coin toss, such as trajectory of the throw, strength of the toss, coin weight, and wind direction, you could predict and get the same outcome from every toss.
The business world is no different. Making a business decision without knowing all the relevant information is like tossing a coin and leaving the outcome to chance. Yet all too often, that is exactly what businesses do every day – usually because there is either too much information to analyze or they cannot figure out what is important to know.
Now imagine there was a solution to take all the hard work out of analyzing information, and the guesswork out of decisions. Imagine this same solution could bring all the information available into one coherent, visually attractive package that could be used immediately to draw conclusions and make informed decisions.
