Business Intelligence and Analytics: Make Sense of Your Data

Description

Volatility and complexity are the new normal. Most organizations are drowning in data, but starving for information. The Specialized Knowledge & Applications and accounting function has the opportunity to leverage Big Data and the continuum of analytics - descriptive, diagnostic, predictive, and prescriptive. All are useful for better decision making. Collecting, validating, and reporting data is not the same thing as analyzing information where we can glean valuable, actionable insights. In some ways the Specialized Knowledge & Applications function is many years behind other disciplines such as marketing, sales, and supply chain managers, in applying analytics. How can the CFO's function catch up?
