ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the issue of decision-makers hampered by lack of appropriate information. Studies related to the data generated and forwarded throughout America and other institutions shows delays in accessing needed information poses a problem in decision-making. Unisphere Research in conjunction with the Oracle Applications Users Group shows turning information into performance is important among decision-makers. Despite the challenges, fewer than 10 percent of employees have access to performance management software on regular basis in most US companies.
