Just Say No to Spreadsheets: A Practical Approach to Automating Capacity Management Presented by: Syncsort
November 7, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Many companies, even medium-sized and larger firms, still rely on a spreadsheet-based foundation for managing capacity, even if they’ve added other application- and platform-specific tools to the mix. Meanwhile, staffing and processes have, naturally, conformed to fit that collection of tools.
While everything might be working well enough for now, it’s only a matter of time before the looming risk of a serious failure becomes a reality. Capacity management functions that rely on spreadsheets are inherently risky, prone to failure and might not comply with today’s regulations. Even if they try to be structured like a database, or have been dressed up like an app using VBS, spreadsheets are flat files and have limitations.
Yet the prospect of throwing out years’ worth of processes and investing in an automated capacity management solution can seem overwhelming. Join this webinar to learn a practical approach to transitioning away from manual processes and spreadsheets while adopting automation that is right fit for your organization’s needs.
During this webinar, we will cover:
• Risks and limitations of a spreadsheet-based approach to capacity management
• Capacity Management Automation: Options and Advantages
• Best practices and real-world examples
