Time to Develop Reports
Technical implementation of new products in era of hyper production eats most of the time during projects. What is left of the time, small time pieces, is left to reporting process and then it has to be done immediately. Reporting must be done in week or two with night shifts in order to provide managers their desired piece of information. Sad but many times true, reporting process is regular entity to blame if projects are slow, and not functioning as planned.
Truth is totally opposite than common belief as a result of many intentional and non-intentional negative campaigns. By non-intentional campaigns are meant actions caused by lack of knowledge about business intelligence and reporting from information systems. Reporting needs time as all other processes in project, and it can’t be left at the end without time and to cover all project dirt with fancy reports. Covering the dirt means only endless hard coding of process problems and illogical setups of information systems.
Unfortunately reporting process is always at the end and shows all non hidden project dirt and is first in the line of fire. Reporting system is ideal to be blamed.
