The Untapped Power of Self-Service Data Analytics

Published By: Alteryx, Inc.     Published Date: Apr 21, 2017
Data Analytics has become critical for many business decision makers. However, many of these managers and data analysts still rely on spreadsheets and other legacy-era tools that fall far short of current needs.

It Takes More Than Good Instincts to Grow Your Business

Published By: Epicor     Published Date: Apr 05, 2017
Today’s financial professionals have access to robust tools that offer a detailed picture of a company’s success in real time. With dashboards reporting in-depth data, a CFO can merely glance at a computer to analyze how well the business is doing in key areas. Despite the impressive technology available today, many businesses have yet to make a change. In a survey of 1,500 finance professionals, nearly half reported relying on gut instinct rather than hard data to make important business decisions. The survey—commissioned by Epicor and conducted by Redshift Research Ltd.—also revealed that a majority of CFOs and financial decision-makers are still relying on spreadsheets to interpret business data. In our “Instinct Meets Insight” eBook, you can explore the survey results and learn how a modern financial IT infrastructure lets decision-makers back up instinct with relevant data they can use to help their businesses grow.

From Business Insight To Business Action

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Apr 03, 2017
Businesses today certainly do not suffer from a lack of data. Every day, they capture and consume massive amounts of information that they use to make strategic and tactical decisions. Yet organizations often lack two critical capabilities when it comes to making the right decisions for the business: the ability to make accurate predictions about the future, and to then use those predicted insights in conjunction with organizational goals to identify the best possible actions they should take. The combination of predictive analytics and decision optimization provides organizations with the ability to turn insight into action. Predictive analytics offers insights into likely scenarios by analyzing trends, patterns and relationships in data. Decision optimization prescribes best-action recommendations given an organization’s business goals and business dynamics, taking into account any tradeoffs or consequences associated with those actions.

Signals: The Marketing Evolution You Cannot Afford to Ignore

Published By: Deluxe     Published Date: Mar 15, 2017
Best-in-class FI marketers have embraced the power of signals. Through their everyday actions, consumers and businesses continually create signals for marketers like you. A signal is an indication of intent or behavior. Examples of activities that produce signals include making a purchase, searching online for information about a financial product, clicking on an ad, applying for a loan, and paying off debt. Each signal can be tracked, monitored, and acted upon. Reaching customers at the critical moment, in the right channel with the right message, requires keen insights about the signals they’re producing. Signals aren’t new to marketing. In fact, you may already be using new mover lists or even search engine marketing. Today, though, there is so much more valuable data available — if you know where to look and what to do with it.

Every day, torrents of data inundate IT organizations and overwhelm the business managers who must sift through it all to glean insights that help them grow revenues and optimize profits.
