BOSTON, MA (MAY, 2008)—Aquent invites marketing operations and data analytics professionals to attend “Managing Your Excel Addiction,” a free webcast featuring Dan Neff, president of Aquent IT Solutions. In this May 29th Aquent/AMA webcast, Dan will help attendees recognize the signs of “excel addiction” and will discuss how they can take control of their data and processes to improve the efficiency of their marketing departments by defining mission critical data, identifying who owns the data, and performing a gap analysis.
“Most marketing departments use spreadsheets to segment, merge, and analyze data because it’s easy to use and it’s widely distributed across most enterprises,” says Neff. “The trouble begins when spreadsheets are used to perform data management tasks – because there is no capability or requirement to back up, lock down, document, or adequately secure the work accomplished.”
After the webcast, Aquent IT Solutions will offer a series of free round-tables and interactive conference calls for companies seeking escape their excel addiction. Discussions will center on how to enhance a marketing departments’ ability to manage its data successfully, consistently, and predictably in order to accomplish the mission of the organization.
The free webcast will be broadcast on May 29, 2008, at 1:00 p.m. ET. Details and registration information can be found here. The presentation will also be archived for future on-demand viewing.
