HR seen as inefficient at managing information


According to a survey of 100 medium-to-large companies by business intelligence specialists Cognos, 81% of UK businesses make crucial decisions with “inadequate data”. An even higher proportion rated improving sdata-handling as their top priority. Only 9% named data security as the greatest immediate concern.

HR was considered particularly at fault, with nearly half of respondents rating it the least effective department. Finance was named by another 26%, with IT coming off best.
