It’s both ironic and unfortunate:
Across organizations, decision makers are swimming in information, yet
they still struggle to really “know” their business.
They cannot access relevant data easily, navigate it quickly, organize it
meaningfully, or make decisions with any
degree of certainty.
Business analytics should enable everyone within an organization to achieve
How? By enabling users to know every aspect of their business — relative to
them; by enabling decisions to be made with confidence — balancing risk and
opportunity; and by enabling users to act boldly — responding to events as they
unfold, taking coordinated
action, and learning and improving over time.
As you look to purchase an analytics solution, consider whether it will do what
you need and whether there are avoidable hidden costs for training,
implementation, or deployment.
