What is Touch Analytics? Avanade® Touch Analytics Delivering data and analytics in the convenience era Driving competitive advantage in a global marketplace means taking advantage of all that technology can provide, combining that with talent, resources,products and services that strike a new and different chord with customers. Making decisions is about having information at hand when you need it most. With a dramatic increase of tablets,phones and convenience devices, the potential to deliver data and analytics information to these devices seems like a common sense decision. Today however,many organizations are grappling with providing that capability to employees. Self-service,multi-device,multiple back-end systems,online/offline needs all add complexity to delivering information to users when they need it most. Maintaining control of the information,having security measures in place for lost devices,data access and other considerations leave organizations wondering how to approach the problem. “Whether it’s entire dashboards and reports or just a small number of KPIs, having the latest information available at the point when it’s needed most can have a major impact on both the efficiency and effectiveness of processes.” Forrester: Market Overview: Mobile Business Intelligence, by Martha Bennett et al., October 28, 2013. © 2014 Avanade Inc.
