Our survey shows a high correlation between reports of positive results and the use of large data volumes. Seventy-nine percent of those reporting positive results, versus 11% of those who don’t, are using more than 10 million records, which are typically outside the domain of spreadsheets and thus require more sophisticated tools for analysis. Of those who are not seeing positive results with FDA, data volume analyzed is low, with only a small minority of respondents analyzing more than 1 million records. Companies are likely to see better results from their FDA tools when they start applying them to more of their data.
