Business analytics and optimization: Work
Business analytics and optimization combines the substantial strengths of IBM in analytic methods and techniques, the ability of our research teams to solve problems of unprecedented scale and complexity, and the industry, business knowledge and skills of our consulting teams.
Business Analytics and Optimization strategy
Realize your business optimization objectives faster with less risk and at a lower cost through an effective information strategy. Applied enterprise wide or deep within a business function, business optimization provides resolution spanning policy, analytics, business process, organization, applications and data.
Business intelligence and performance management
Improve decision-making, productivity and efficiency through an environment where relevant, actionable, accurate and timely information is provided to monitor and improve performance. The ability to optimize performance within a company typically depends on a decision-makers' ability to measure and understand business performance, then act upon the information at the right time. Using data to derive insight requires more than operational reporting and financial roll-ups. Data should be transformed into insight and delivered at the point of need, so that information is delivered on demand in right time, in formats that your enterprise can use to act in ways that are beneficial to the business and optimize performance.
Advanced analytics and optimization
Tackle and solve your most complex problems and create unique predictive capabilities for intelligent decisions. The advanced innovative research in data analytics and optimization helps us to establish a proactive versus reactive strategy to enhance performance and improve operational efficiency. Optimization capabilities including crime analytics, complex supply chain, risk management and marketing investment, can mitigate risk, transform business processes and predict outcomes with greater certainty.
Enterprise information management
Achieve data integration between disparate systems to improve business processes and total business performance, and make intelligent decisions. As part of information management, master data management can help increase data consistency throughout the enterprise to create new business value and strategic advantage. In addition, you will benefit from a complete, sophisticated view of the customer, which will improve customer satisfaction and place your company ahead of the competition.
Enterprise content management
Reduce processing cycle time, improve customer service and compliance, and establish agility and flexibility. Most companies have vast stores of content existing throughout the entire enterprise. It is estimated that 85 percent of the information managed by a typical business is in the form of unstructured "content." This includes Internet/intranet content, scanned paper, e-mails, documentation, trouble tickets, call logs, work orders, knowledge bases, images, financial reports, service agreements and many other types of data specific to your industry. Effective management and processing of unstructured information will help you to analyze and act.
