MIS 660 Topic 5 DQ 1
Data is useless without the skills to manipulate, summarize, and analyze it. In fact, even after data is summarized into a reporting format such as graphs and tables, it still requires someone to add context and describe the results to fully explain the data. This can be difficult, especially if data is being presented to nontechnical individuals. Describe two techniques that can be used to better describe analysis results to nontechnical individuals.

Describe two benefits to having a user interact with a standard report. Are there any drawbacks if the user modifies the report?
