Deloitte Analytics and IBM Software: See what’s inside

  2. 2. Business analytics 101 Business analytics is the practice of using data to manage information and performance — and make smarter decisions. It can apply to almost any business issue, but most organizations tend to focus on five main areas of decision-making and operations: customer, supply chain, finance, workforce, and risk. At its highest and best use, business analytics delivers uncommon insights and breakout value. Business analytics isn’t new. Companies have been using data to inform their decisions for years. What has changed is the speed at which decisions need to be made. Plus, the world is more complex today — businesses have to consider the entire ecosystem in which they exist, including social, economic, environmental, and political currents that would have seemed outside their purview not so long ago. That puts business analytics in the center of the action today. Meanwhile, the variety and number of signals have changed. The same old approaches to analytics just aren’t up to the job. Deloitte Analytics helps organizations answer their toughest business questions by analyzing, interpreting, and visualizing information coming from internal and external sources.2
  3. 3. Crunchy questionsExtracting the most relevant and valuable insights frommountains of information starts with what we call crunchyquestions — specific, roll-up-your-sleeves inquiriesdesigned to lay the groundwork for action. These kinds ofquestions form the foundation of any analytics initiative.Here are some examples:• What shipping strategy will deliver the lowest carbon footprint AND lowest operating cost? How much marketing spend will it take to monetize the public relations value of the new strategy?• Which of three acquisition targets has the most stable customer base? Which has the most underpenetrated base? What would be the impact of losing 10% of the most profitable customers in the deal?• What effect does the capital market crunch have on access to expansion and the purchasing power of our clients?Knowing which questions to ask — and where to findthe answers — are essential capabilities for a winningapproach to business analytics. For every organization,there are a different set of questions that must beanswered to generate real business results fromanalytics. Deloitte can help zero in on those questions —and with IBM technology in place, we can begin findingthe answers quickly. Deloitte Analytics and IBM Software See what’s inside 3
