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.

Effectively using and managing information has become critical to driving growth in areas such as pursuing new business opportunities, attracting and retaining customers, and streamlining operations.

These needs create a daunting array of workload challenges and place tremendous demands on your underlying IT infrastructure and database systems. In many cases, these systems are no longer up to the task—so it’s time to make a decision. Do you use more staff to keep up with the fixes, patches, add-ons and continual tuning required to make your existing systems meet performance goals, or move to a new database solution so you can assign your staff to new, innovative projects that move your business forward?
