Battery Power Shakes Up Made2Manage


While Made2Manage's decision to go private under a wealthy Battery Ventures' wing, which was supposedly committed to invest in the acquired technology was prudent at the time of announcement; subsequent events might be showing us a different side of the buyout medal.

Data Management and Analysis


From a business perspective, the role of data management and analysis is crucial. It is not only a resource for gathering new stores of static information; it is also a resource for acquiring knowledge and supporting the decisions companies need to make in all aspects of economic ventures, including mergers and acquisitions (M&As).

For organizational growth, all requirements and opportunities must be accurately communicated throughout the value chain. All users—from end users to data professionals—must have the most accurate data tools and systems in place to efficiently carry out their daily tasks. Data generation development, data quality, document and content management, and data security management are all examples of data-related functions that provide information in a logical and precise manner.
