Why NumberWorks?

NumberWorks’ metric-driven approach will help you define the information you need to make effective decisions and keep improving your organisation.


Organising application data into actionable operational information could be seen as simply a matter of ‘asking, listening and documenting’.

But often this process is anything but simple.

Without knowing the questions to ask, what to listen for, and how to document the answers, ‘simply’ asking, listening and documenting can easily produce definitions unrelated to the problem being solved.

To counteract this pitfall, traditional analysis methods have concentrated on defining either:

  • the flow of steps to be performed/recorded – ‘function orientation’
  • the things affected by the processing – ‘object orientation’
Why NumberWorks - identifying, reporting and monitoring


But real activity never seems to fall neatly into either of these partitions.

That’s because performing an activity usually results in updates to multiple pieces of information, which are then used by many subsequent – and parallel – activities. Equally, an activity may depend on information from multiple past activities.

To accommodate this, systems have been based either on a single ever-growing database, or on multiple separate databases with considerable messaging between them. Both make for fragile solutions that are difficult to monitor and change.

But with NumberWorks’ metric-driven approach, you’ll be able to structure information from separate activities to define meaningful operational metrics, without the need for cumbersome applications or complex data transfers.

In turn, you’ll be able to make better operational decisions and continuously improve how your organisation is run.
