I’m a big fan of infographics, I like to see data rather than read about it. The first point on this infographic struck me.
That’s a staggering number. The rest of the infographic, which you can see linked below, goes on to talk about the power of mobile and the rise of BYOD in the enterprise. Valid and interesting points and when used in conjunction with a platform such as SharePoint, can significantly increase access to corporate data. I couldn’t get beyond the opener though,
If the average Fortune 1000 business increased the usability of its data by just 10%, it could realize a $2.01 billion annual revenue increase.
As I was thinking about this, I wondered what other ways a company could increase its data usability. Access is one thing, having a robust platform where the data is housed is another, but does any of it matter if you can’t actually find the data you are looking for?
My colleagues Matt Morse and Brian Flanagan will be talking about SharePoint 2013 and creating great search experiences in their webinar on October 17th. I’ll be interested to hear what they have to say. What do you think? Can mobility, a collaboration platform like SharePoint 2013 and search coupled with great design, driving a positive user experience and adoption lead to a significant increase in revenue?
