Analyst Research: IDC's Technology Spotlight
The Role of Enterprise Performance Management Solutions in Supporting an Organization's Decision Making
Frustrated by business analytics software that pushes a large amount of data at you, with no real actionable insights? IDC Custom Solutions realized the same problem, noting that too often these non-actionable solutions drove users back to Excel and unwieldy manual data analysis programs.
They knew there had to be a better way.
IDC's Technology Spotlight reports on "The Role of Enterprise Performance Management Solutions in Supporting an Organization's Decision Making" and how the right system does more than just deliver endless lines of data.
The best enterprise performance management solutions also foster a collaborative, decision-making workflow that can:
- Hypothesize alternative solutions for a business challenge
- Model different approaches to the problem, using variable factors on an explored or simulated issue
- Decide on the best course of action, using real data and input from a team of employees
Find the best of these solutions, IDC notes, and you can avoid lost business opportunities, costly missteps, and finally (finally!) leave Excel behind once and for all.
