Speeding the Time to Intelligence: Effective Information Management through Business Intelligence Competency Centers and Performance Management

Speeding the Time to Intelligence: Effective Information Management through Business Intelligence Competency Centers and Performance Management

Cover
With the SAS® Enterprise Intelligence Platform-and the BI and performance management solutions that run on that platform-companies can automate their planning, budgeting, management reporting, financial consolidation, business process management, and operational performance management. Results are generated from business specific key performance indicators (KPIs) via a dashboard, portal, or other customizable interface. The data is presented in color-coded temperature charts and "data movies," which allow users to manipulate a motion-enabled, graphical environment.

The bottom line is that successful users have found that both a BICC and the use of PM tools can sharply cut the crucial time to intelligence-the amount of time needed to discover, present, evaluate, and act on critical data. The articles in this document will explain in detail how to arrive at and implement an effective business intelligence strategy, using both a BICC and performance management technology.
