Question 1 of 3

What’s your level of confidence in the quality of your data?

Low — Not confident
Uh-oh… Looks like your data could use a cleanse. But you're not alone — 1/5 of companies surveyed agreed. By improving data quality, your team can move faster and make more informed decisions.
Medium — Sometimes confident
You're right on par: 4/5 of companies felt medium confidence in data quality. To get ahead, think about analysis and access: do you have processes set up to let your team view, visualize, and take action on data?
High — Very confident
Nice work! Not a single company surveyed expressed a high confidence in data quality.

Question 2 of 3

On an average week, how much time does each person on your team spend searching for and collecting data?

2-4 hours
Great job keeping data organized! Your team spends less time finding data than the average biotech: only 16% of companies surveyed spend 2-4 hours.
5-7 hours
Your team is spending a lot of time looking for data, and the problem reaches industry-wide: 65% of companies reported this too. Would centralizing it help save your team valuable time so they can work more efficiently?
8-10 hours
Time is precious — take it back! Only 19% of companies spend this much time finding data. Figure out how to organize your data effectively to give hours back to your team to spend on mission critical work.

Moderate — Some effort is required
You’re doing better than the average team, but there’s still room to improve. 37.5% reported their data collaboration abilities are moderate.
Difficult — It’s messy
You’re not alone — 62.5% said it’s difficult, too. Investing in collaboration workflows can help everyone move faster and learn from one another.
