Midsize companies have big plans, but often have limited resources. They may know that integrated BI and planning solutions can help grow their business. But they often shy away from these technologies, thinking that these systems are too complex or expensive for them.
It’s time to dispel that myth.
Today’s BI and planning solutions are perfectly scaled and priced for small to midsize companies. The IBM Cognos Midsize Business Analytics Quarterly Virtual Summit on March 2 is a great place to learn about the newest technologies that are affordable and can deliver immediate results.
For example, come to the virtual summit to learn techniques for coping with volatility and risk in this changing economy. Industry expert, IBM Finance Forum speaker and author David Axson will outline practical planning processes that you can put to use in any size company, including methods such as rolling forecasts and scenario modeling. And you can talk with your peers about implementing these new solutions for rapid ROI.
This virtual summit will feature a case study on Concept One and how it has replaced time-consuming, manual processes and avoided the replacement of its ERP system. Hear how Concept One is building a cost-effective BI and planning solution to react more quickly to changing business conditions and drive growth.
You’ll also see a hands-on demonstration of IBM Cognos Express and its new Express Planner module purpose-built for a midsize company’s automated planning, budgeting and forecasting.
To get the most from the Virtual Summit, do your homework and take a hard look at your company’s current capabilities, so you can come prepared to answer the questions that matter most to you. Use the online business analytics ROI assessment tool for an objective look at where your company stands. With this information as a baseline, you can chart the next steps for creating a fully integrated BI and planning system.
See how you can turn information into actionable insight for smarter decision making. See you at the summit!
