Great article on Business Week site… http://www.businessweek.com/managing/content/feb2011/ca2011023_063316.htm?campaign_id=yhoo 

Uncertainty… To mitigate uncertainty you need insight into the marketplace, your business, customer behavior, economics, supply chain, etc etc etc. Where do you get that insight?? From the data sources within your company and from data outside your company. How do you analyze it?? With good data warehousing solutions, good data models and business intelligence / business analytics tools. Will this get you ALL the answers you need?? NO, but it’s far better to do your analysis and make as many decisions as you can based on facts, analytics, trends, scorecards, dashboards, performance, predictive modeling, than it is to rely on gut feel, intuition, or that arrogant word, experience. Data warehousing and analytics are seeing a huge surge for this very reason – to take as much uncertainty out of the equation as possible and base decisions on facts and analytics rather than gut feel.

IBM’s Analytical Ways – Why Big Blue has invested $12 billion in data analytics.

Written at Forbes.com by Kym McNicholas, http://www.forbes.com/2010/11/05/data-analytics-ibm-technology-cio-network-jonas.html

In good economic climates, even a monkey on a rock can make money. In the tough times that we face today, you have to know your markets and your customers deeply in order to make better, faster and more confident decisions. This can only come from an integrated data warehouse based on trusted information, that is mined for trends, insights, opportunities and cost savings.

1 in 3 business leaders make decisions on information they do not have or do not trust, and 1 in 2 don’t have access to the information they need to do their jobs (IBM CIO Study 2010 – http://www-935.ibm.com/services/us/cio/ciostudy/executive-views.html).

So the New Year’s Resolution you must make, is to invest in providing your executives and Line of Business managers with the information and insights they need. And provide visual reports, scorecards and dashboards on key performance indicators.

You can bet that your competitors are fast at work doing this. Data warehousing and business analytics are more important in today’s global economy than ever before.

Once you have this insight, then and only then, can you take the right actions to optimize your business.
