  • Business Intelligence can have a direct positive impact on a company’s business performance, dramatically improving its ability to accomplish its mission… BI is particularly strategic because it is directed toward business managers and knowledge workers...

  • Look After Your Customers “Stinting on customer service is a common and sometimes costly response to tough economic times. By managing the customer experience more rigorously, companies can maintain quality while still saving money.” McKinsey © SAP 2009 / Page 8
  • Look After Your Employees “As deteriorating performance forces increasingly aggressive head count reductions, it’s easy to lose valuable contributors inadvertently, damage morale or the company’s external reputation among potential employees, or drop the ball on important training and staff-development programs.” McKinsey © SAP 2009 / Page 9
