The current business environment is still characterized by skittishness, tenuous demand and sporadic growth. It’s no surprise then, that 60% of CFOs plan to make major changes to critical finance practices and processes, according to the 2010 IBM Global CFO Study. In fact, 70% of CFOs claim to be taking a more prominent role in enterprise decision making beyond the traditional role of finance. Yet many CFOs admit to significant gaps in their ability to deliver on this expanded agenda, particularly in their ability to measure and monitor business performance. The IBM study found that those companies that invest in capabilities to expand their business insight are better able to anticipate and react to the unpredictable external forces affecting the economy.

While more and more enterprises are using analytics to guide their decision-making processes, most midsize businesses continue to rely on old-fashioned decision-making techniques like trial and error. The reason for this is simple: advanced analytics solutions can be very complex and expensive to implement, leading midmarket businesses to assume that the benefits of analytics are beyond their reach. IBM has created a new analytics solution that is designed specifically with the needs of midmarket businesses in mind. The solution, IBM Analytic Answers, gives midmarket businesses the opportunity to take advantage of a sophisticated analytics platform, backed by IBM expertise, while also staying within their budgets.

Business Intelligence (BI) has become a mandatory part of every enterprise’s decision-making fabric. Unfortunately in many cases, with this rise in popularity, came a significant and disturbing complexity. Many BI environments began to have a myriad of moving parts: data warehouses and data marts deployed on multiple platforms and technologies – each requiring significant effort to ensure performance and support for the various needs and skill sets of the business resources using the environment. These convoluted systems became hard to manage or enhance with new requirements. To remain viable and sustainable, they must be simplified. Fortunately today, we have the ability to build simpler BI technical environments that still support the necessary business requirements but without the ensuing management complexity. This paper covers what is needed to simplify BI environments and the technologies that support this simplification.
