Today’s increasingly competitive global economy requires businesses to make decisions faster than ever. Businesses need instant insight into the status of their people and processes. But manual, paper-based processes undermine decision-making. Paper makes it difficult for businesses to make smart decisions about their operations and their working capital. Manual processes also are costly and inefficient, create headaches for front-line staff, introduce compliance and security risks, and stymie collaboration with trading partners.

In the digital economy, big IT budgets, lots of brick sand mortar and an established market presence are no longer at the foundation of a competitive advantage. What matters now is the agility and speed to ensure that customer centricity is supported as an overriding priority of business operations and decision making. Game-changing ideas are developing and competitive threats are emerging at a rapid and unpredictable pace. The resulting digital disruption is not just occurring at the margins or within isolated pockets of industry and commerce. It’s the new normal and its consequences are far reaching. The essential question for every organization in every sector is simply: Will we be the disruptor or will we allow ourselves to be the disrupted?

Ironically, the most important business decisions are too often based not on the best available data and analysis, but on the judgment calls of HIPPOs — the highest-paid people in the organization. In large part, these individuals became HIPPOs in the first place because, over the course of their professional careers, their intuition and gut feel has tended to be more right than wrong. This approach may have sufficed in simpler, slower-moving times. But modern enterprises are too connected and too fast-paced for important business decisions to be made strictly on individual intuition and gut feel. For better-informed decision-making, your organization’s decision-makers need timely access to information they can rely on.

Download this new paper to get the details behind self-service data analytics, and how it lets business analysts: Take charge of the entire analytical process, instead of relying on other departments Overcome limitations of legacy tools to save time and prevent errors Make more comprehensive and insightful business decisions at speed
