Every organization has the need for analytics – that is, every organization has data they need to gather, analyze, and interpret. But that is easier said than done. As technology evolves and the amount of data and data sources grow exponentially, you may have little or no time to rethink your analytics initiatives to change with a fast-paced business environment. Accessing new data sources, and being able to determine what is valuable and what is noise, is no easy feat. Without the time or means to evolve—or technology that’s flexible enough to grow with the business—you can only achieve the status quo. Innovation will have to wait.
Analytics for All
Great analytics helps you uncover solutions to your business challenges. When analytics is incorporated as a fundamental component of your ongoing business strategy, everyone in your organization is empowered to: understand what happened, why it happened, and leverage that data to predict what will happen next.
Analytics initiatives conform to whatever business you are in and adjust to diverse user needs. For example, marketing pros use analytics to measure campaign results and ROI, harnessing that data to ensure that the right offers are delivered to customers at the right time, and can predict what your buyers will respond to next. HR captures insights about employees and potential talent, and uses that data to optimize recruitment, retain top performers, and even predict turnover talent across the enterprise. IT staff has different priorities: providing the reports and dashboards that enable users to dig into data on their own, while maintaining data governance and security. To be truly effective, a comprehensive analytics solution must combine dynamic self-service discovery with enterprise reporting and advanced analytics capabilities. From an administration perspective, that means governance and flexibility, access to any type of data source, as well as data preparation and analysis capabilities for all users.
Uncover New Opportunities
Advancements in analytics technology are creating new opportunities for you to capitalize on your data. Modern analytics are predictive, self-learning, and adaptive to help you uncover hidden data patterns. They are intuitive as well, incorporating stunning visualizations that enable you to understand millions of rows and columns of data in an instant. Modern analytics are mobile and easy to work with. And they connect you to the right data at the right time, with little or no training required.
