One of the most positive outcomes of using RSA Archer is that it's helped us to evolve from an organization or an environment where we're constantly trying to chase data and information and the resulting frustration and inefficiency that stems from that. Now we have a source of record where employees can go to access data and more quickly consume it and make decisions based on it. So it's not only improved efficiency, but it's also really helped to improve morale. It’s eliminated a lot of frustration and finger pointing that had occurred in the past when you had single points of failure with a custodian who owned a single piece of data that wasn't widely available to the entire organization.
