Analytics is a must
During IBM Performance 2012, hosted by the popular Flemish actor, writer and presenter Kurt van Eeghem, it became even more apparent just how important analytics is for organizations. It enables them to draw insights from the huge volumes of data in their business systems, and from Big Data. With this, they can take smart decisions in difficult times to improve their service provision, efficiency and competitive positions. The large number of visitors to IBM Performance 2012 was proof of just how much thought is being devoted to this challenge.
The difference between winning and losing
In the morning’s plenary session, Professor Gino Van Ossel, of Vlerick Business School, business intelligence specialist Oliver Oursin, and management consulting veteran Frans Bentlage, each proceeded from their own approach to consider the opportunities and possibilities offered by analytics. The high-profile American baseball coach Brian Farley, demonstrated conclusively how analytics makes the difference between winning and losing.
An issue for all departments
Analytics is a subject spanning all departments. This was made abundantly clear during the break-out sessions for various categories of professionals in the afternoon. Financial specialists, marketing and sales people, IT’ers, risk managers and other business professionals: they are all aware that analytics is a significant success factor for their organizations.
