InetSoft Webinar: Use Your Business Intelligence As a Competitive Edge

This is of the transcript of a Webinar hosted by InetSoft on the topic of "How to Use Your Business Intelligence As a Competitive Edge." The speaker is Mark Flaherty, CMO at InetSoft.

In this highly competitive environment, using business intelligence is critical to drive success in small and mid-size organizations. If there’s one true thing for business in the Internet age, so to speak, it’s that small and mid-size organizations are competing and competing very effectively with the largest enterprises. Now a key part of doing this is to use your business intelligence as a competitive edge and to really infuse your organization with the ability to make the best decisions in the timeframe you need to make them.

So today’s event I think is really an important way to help you understand how to take advantage of information management and business intelligence tools, and we’re going to have a great event where we’re actually going to demo some of these capabilities. Also just a couple things before we get started, I want to urge you to take advantage of a couple of features on your console that are very important.

One, don’t forget to download a copy of today’s slides, we’ve got some slides and also the demo. And two, ask us your questions. Your questions are very important. We’re going to get to a number of them at the end of the event live. If we don’t get to your question live, we’ll get back to you in an email response. So it’s a great way to interact.

Today we’re going to talk about how you can leverage business intelligence to grow your company. Now we all know large scale enterprises use business intelligence to drive things like accurate forecasting or and better decision making. Small and medium size organizations have similar information challenges, but they may not have the staff, the time or the resources to deploy comprehensive BI solutions. So today we’re actually going to specifically look at agile business intelligence solutions tailored for mid market customers.

To introduce InetSoft, we’ve been working in the business intelligence industry for over the past decade. We’ve been deploying business intelligence solutions like reporting and dashboarding for all kinds of business, and we also have some specific solutions for the financial industry.

So today’s session is about helping you grow your organization through better information and analytics. Now, we’re going to touch on what you need to do or need to know in order to move from a purely report centric environment to something that truly transforms the way you do business.

Now why does matter to you? One thing that keeps coming up, we keep hearing in our customer calls, is that options for growth do exist but they’re harder to find, and the business environment is much tougher. Now a lot of this has to do with the competition that’s out there, maybe rapid changes in regulations within certain industries or even volatile customer preferences. This means that having access to relevant accurate information for decisions is more important than ever.

So today’s session is about 40 minutes. As mentioned before, we’re going to have a Q&A session near the end so type in your questions, and we’ll try to get to them either during the presentation itself or at the end or via email.
