  2. 2. Business Intelligence A hot objective in business today is using information technology to “maximise the power of corporate information.” Organisations are looking to technology to simplify the way in which decision makers access and analyze data so that they can spend their time focusing on generating innovative ways to drive business rather than searching for the information they need and deciphering “old school” reports. One popular method of providing users with simplified information access and management is via dashboards. A dashboard is an application or browser-based interface that helps measure organisational performance in terms of organisational units, business processes, and individuals. It offers “gauges,” or snapshot views of performance information to assist users with decision making or performance-related tasks. The following slides present an overview of APSincs’ scope of dashboard as well as business strategy simulation technology.
  3. 3. Business Intelligence – ABC’s Why Use Dashboard Technology Businesses are showing a renewed interest in dashboards. According to a study that surveyed 113 executives from large companies, “… 90 percent of the companies using dashboards in their organisation had over 200 users. And, this number is expected to grow over the next 18 months. In fact, over 50 percent of the respondents plan to add 500 or more users in this time period. #1 Companies are looking to dashboards not only to help improve decision making company wide, but also outsource costs associated with time-consuming, manual, information-gathering methods.

  11. 11. Business Simulation – The Value Proposition FOUNDATION® Business Simulation Foundation® is APSinc’s primary business simulation designed to teach all the essential elements of running a business: finance, the cause and effect relationships between functional areas, satisfying customer demands and competitive analysis. Participants run a R350 million ($40M) company for five to eight years. They start with a company for five to eight years. They start with a company that has no clear direction and sub-par financial results. The goal is to create a successful business in the face of tough competition. Foundation companies operate in two market segments: low tech and high tech. Each simulated year, the management team shapes the company’s future by making decisions in Research and Development, Marketing, Finance, Human Resources and Production. In later rounds, decisions in Total Quality Management are added. The goal is to build a successful company with its own strategic direction, so each management team chooses its own benchmarks for success from: Return on Equity (ROE), Return on Investment (ROI), Market Capitalization, Market Share (in Dollars), Cumulative Profit, Return on Assets (ROA), Asset Turnover and Stock Price. Foundation is ideal for associates, newer hires, supervisors and functional managers. It can be offered in a face-to-face seminar (minimum 3 days), completely online (flexible time frame with a minimum of two week span), or as a hybrid instructional design, part face-to-face and part online. Foundation can also be used in more senior corporate training programs, where time is limited. For complete flexibility, the simulation can be managed: - As a team competition: four to six teams, each running a company and competing head-to-head, or - As a foot race, in which you run your company as an individual, competing against five computer-generated companies.
