"It's gonna happen."
That's a phrase thrown around my hometown of Chicago, Illinois quite often. It's invariably in reference to our Major League Baseball team, the Chicago Cubs. Sadly, it's been over 100 years since our last title and, from the looks of this years on-field performance, it will probably be another 100 years.
Luckily, the notion of "It's gonna happen" is a future aspiration for only our city's professional baseball team and not in performance management solutions.
That's right. Where it most certainly does not apply is in IBM's newly released performance management solution, IBM Concert.
In short, for IBM Concert, "It's happened!"
IBM Concert is a perfect blend of the greatest technology has to offer - cloud-enabled, mobile-ready - with capabilities driven from our user communities wish list to help them drive, monitor and understand their business better.
Enter IBM Concert.
IBM launched IBM Concert this week and is the most advanced performance management solution on the market as the do-it-all solution delivering guided business processes, personalized task lists, easy sharing of in-context data and analysis as well as dashboards with readily accessible metrics and KPIs.
These are just some of the reasons IBM Concert is a game-changer. But, there's more...
Personalized task lists
These lists highlight important, time-sensitive tasks that improve efficiency through a practical, “day in the life” approach to performance management processes. Users can view their performance metrics and KPIs in full context, including charts, graphs and tables identifying trends and patterns on the go.
Users can easily collaborate and share data analysis with anyone, anywhere to build consensus around business decisions. They can collaborate through an interface with commentary and dialog and adopt the unique model design and data access level to meet your users’ specific business processes.
Changes and collaborative insights are presented to users as they occur, so prioritized tasks can be acted upon sooner. Gain access to relevant information from anywhere at any time—from home, to the warehouse, to the customer’s site through a range of mobile devices, including Android and Apple smartphones.
IBM Concert is of course web-based and cloud-deployable custom tailored to each users' specifications. Free the IT organization from the burden of maintaining hardware and installing software upgrades where you can accelerate time-to-value and lower adoption costs.
