Breaking Away With Business Analytics and Optimization

White Paper Published By: IBM
Published:  Oct 13, 2011
Type:  White Paper
Length:  16 pages

This whitepaper from IBM reveals three ways that the most successful companies are taking action when they deploy business analytics. Based on a recent study of business leaders, it is clear that higher performing organizations have these differentiating characteristics:

  • Higher performers are challenging. They excel in disrupting the status quo, creating an environment more receptive to innovation, and bolder in its application of new insights and intelligence.
  • Higher performers are anticipating. They're better at predicting and preparing in advance by evaluating business outcomes and trade-offs proactively in pursuit of new objectives.
  • Higher performers are empowering. They give employees authority to use information, make decisions and act on their insights to drive change.

How do companies acquire these critical characteristics and use them to achieve business objectives? Our "Breaking Away" paper shows how success depends on management structures such as data governance, as well as advanced analytic tools and programs for changing people and business processes.
