A fully integrated analytics operating model can help consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies focus commercial analytics resources on high-value processes to grow market share and sustain profit margins.
Market and economic uncertainty is making it difficult for CPG companies to achieve sustainable growth. Value-driven consumers are more demanding than ever before, and retailers are increasingly pushing private labels and looking for ways to control the consumer relationship. Additionally, “big data” has left many marketing and sales organizations with an information overload, yielding little insight into how to win consumer loyalty. This uncertain environment requires CPG companies to make faster, better-informed commercial decisions and take concrete action to improve market performance.
In this point of view, Accenture outlines an approach that can help CPG companies improve their commercial analytics capability to generate significant value.
