The quality of business information and data lags far behind that of other, less valuable disciplines in critical areas, including documentation, definition, organization and standardization.
Business information is...not Documented
Need to brush your teeth or operate a toaster? You are in luck. Directions and user manuals are at your fingertips. What if you need to process a loan? What about onboarding a new hire? Directions for these processes will be hard to find, unclear or unavailable.
Business information is...not Defined
Looking to brush up on the Klingon language? Not a problem, the internet has you covered. Now, how about definitions for job roles, industries, metrics and business processes? You will either not find them or run across many conflicting, confusing definitions for each of them.
Business information is...not Organized
Believe it or not, the world of Middle Earth has an organized, detailed taxonomy. Hobbits, elves and wizards - documented, organized and published. How about business? Taxonomies, or structural hierarchies, for industries and functional areas (e.g., Finance, HR, etc.) are impossible to find and/or entirely non-standard.
Business information is...not Standardized
Measuring the performance of any sports player is easy. Just navigate to one of any thousand websites that track standardized statistics across every major sport. What about the performance of your business? Operational business performance metrics are not standardized, making benchmarking and measurement hard or almost impossible.
OpsDog's mission is to address this absurd gap in business knowledge (data, definitions, etc.) by using a standardized taxonomy and data structures to store and form connections between metrics, data, business processes, work methods and much more.
