Predictive Analytics – Optimization – Performance Management

IBM Performance Management

Performance Management refers to how an organization leverages its assets (people, money and technology) to achieve short-, medium- and long-term strategic goals.  Few areas are more important to business performance than your decision-making ability.  Performance managers use metrics, plans and reports to make better decisions about strategy, resources and tactics.  You can become a performance manager in your department by asking three key questions:

How are we doing?  Stay on-track to meet targets with visibility into any aspect of your business performance.

Why?  Put results and decisions into context by analyzing trends and patterns.

What should we be doing?  Allocate human and financial resources more effectively using driver-based plans and rolling forecasts.

Benefits of Performance Management

Greater agility: Break free of spreadsheets with dynamic, driver-based planning and scenario modeling.  Set and re-set targets, plans and resource allocations quickly to seize new opportunities or respond to emerging threats.
