    16. 16. Aggregating & Analyzing Data Most organizations (nearly all) do not extract a level of value from their HRIT investments commensurate with the money, time, and effort devoted. Workforce Planning/Analytics helps organizations maximize the value derived from HRIT investments (a.k.a. “data assets”). In turn, the insight generated serves as a unique, hard-to-replicate competitive advantage as leaders are able to make more effective decisions.
