Profit, Volume 18, No. 2—May 2013
At the 2013 Accenture Oracle Leadership Council (AOLC) meeting in Florida, USA, Aaron Lazenby, Editor of Oracle Publishing’s award-winning Profit magazine, spent time in conversation with Brad Genson, Accenture’s Managing Director of Oracle Business Intelligence and Analytics.
Key takeaways from their discussion included:
Don’t buy new technology to run the same old reports: Executives looking at analytics should take the opportunity to completely re-imagine the art of the possible—how a fresh look at enterprise data can drive their business forward.
Ask the right questions: Getting valuable insight from a new analytics system is about much more than just turning on the software. Sponsors of any analytics project must have a vision of how they want to evolve their organizations—and ask the questions that will help them create real business value.
Add value-add to current systems: The data in existing enterprise resource-planning (ERP) systems is a potential goldmine for insights about operations. C-suite executives need to query data stores about established business processes, which have the potential to drive significant improvements in operating margins.
