What is a data consolidation app?

A data consolidation app is a web or mobile application that enables users to view, compare, and filter data in different ways. The app typically allows users to upload their own datasets for others to access and may include tools for visualizing the data with charts and graphs.

Data consolidation services are often used by organizations as a means of consolidating internal and external data, such as financial data and customer data. Some common companies that provide data consolidation services include QuickBooks, Intuit, SAP, and Oracle.

How to successfully grow your data consolidation application

A data consolidation app grows its user base by becoming the single source for a particular kind of information, like restaurant menus or stocks. Data consolidation apps need to make sure that they are providing enough value to users in order to keep them coming back for new information and features. It's critical for data consolidation apps to show users the utility of the app in terms they understand, such as saving time on research tasks or increasing their interactions with other people.

Risks and challenges of building a data consolidation application

Data consolidation apps face legal risks related to the storage and handling of user data, as well as technical risks related to securing sensitive data in transit and at rest. You should ensure that you have a legally valid reason for collecting and storing user data through your app. You will need to ensure that you have adequate security controls in place to protect all of your users’ data from unauthorized access attempts by hackers or unauthorized disclosure, especially since this type of app handles a larger volume of highly sensitive information.
