The Future of Business Intelligence
Title: Reengineering Decision-Making: The Future of Business Intelligence
Type: On-Demand Webinar
ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Despite businesses having more data at their disposal than ever before, it’s been reported that decision making is harder than ever. In a recent Gartner survey, 65% of respondents said the decisions they make are more complex than just two years ago. 53% said they face more pressure to explain or justify their decisions.
Decisions from Senior Executives don’t take account of enough relevant variables, don’t adequately consider the future effects, and don’t happen on a cadence that positions the organisation to capture opportunities and mitigate risks. Many businesses base their decisions on gut feel instead of what their data is telling them.
To ensure success, decision-makers need a way to predict the outcomes of their decisions to guarantee the best results possible. They need to be connected, contextual and continuous.
Artificial intelligence technology is the heart of this new era called Decision Intelligence.
BI platforms are evolving. Many enterprises have already realised that dashboards aren’t enough when making decisions. Analytics teams need to get insights from machine learning models into the hands of decision makers in a way that is intuitive for business users. That’s where Decision Intelligence comes in.
Decision intelligence connects AI and human decision-making to form more intelligent conclusions, which lead to more favourable outcomes. Unlike data visualisation tools, decision intelligence connects the dots between multiple machine learning models – helping to determine how the decision impacts other departments in the organisation. Simply put, it is the commercial application of artificial intelligence and machine learning to grow revenues and profits.
This webinar is for any IT and business leader looking to make better business decisions by transforming their business analytics into a more comprehensive decision support platform.
Businesses that make great decisions win and with the speed of business being what it is today, companies can ill afford mistakes. In order to succeed in this new era, businesses will need to use intelligence to inform decision making, and in many cases, to make decisions alongside you; quicker, faster, continuously over more data, more often.
Progressive organisations are already complementing the best of human decision-making capabilities with the power of data and analytics and artificial intelligence — to create opportunities to fundamentally change what they do. According to Gartner, by 2023, 30% of organisations will harness the collective intelligence of their analytics communities, outperforming competitors that rely solely on centralised analytics or self-service.
