APPA 38 – Business Intelligence Solutions for the Workplace
Page 2 Agenda What is EPM? What is BI? Why is it important? How to do it? –Pitfalls What’s coming next? Q & A
Page 3 What is Enterprise Performance Management (EPM)? Corporate Performance Management (Gartner): –Methodologies, metrics, processes and systems used to monitor and manage the business performance of an enterprise. Business Performance Management (Forrester): –It is not simply a reporting system — it is a tool for implementing business strategy, but it is of little value without the organizational commitment and cultural transformation to make it work. Enterprise Performance Management (AMR): –It is an emerging superset of applications and processes that cross the traditional department boundaries to manage the full lifecycle of business decision-making. Common Themes: Business Intelligence, Analytic Applications, Methodology
Page 4 What is EPM? Not a single product BI applications, methodologies, and change management Linking strategy to action –Metrics (KPIs) –Information delivery, right person, right time –Process automation and optimization
Page 6 What Is Business Intelligence? BI is a term invented by Gartner in 1992 BI provides access to structured info Reporting that is “analytical” or informational in nature Ad hoc reporting, OLAP, data mining, BAM, scorecards, and dashboards Data warehouse reporting Even “operational reporting” Answers questions, informs, alerts
Page 7 What Is Business Intelligence? Business Intelligence is… A term invented by Gartner in 1992 An integrated suite of tools that provides organization-wide reporting and analysis via role-based dashboards, delivering the right information to the right people at the right time. Cross-functional data, both structured and unstructured data and operational systems, comes together to provide sharply focused views. Users can navigate smoothly from alerts to interactive analysis down to detailed reports and even to the transactions all while maintaining the context that’s critical to root cause analysis.
Page 8 Definition: What is Business Intelligence? BI transforms raw transactional data collected within business applications into actionable information BI delivers the right information to the right people at the right time BI focuses on improving decision making processes BI improves the ability of the business to manage performance versus targets at all levels BI provides visibility to the root drivers of financial performance BI links strategy to action BI links people, processes, and information
Page 9 Challenges with BI Solutions 1.What are my most profitable areas of improvement? 2.Where is the data, is it relevant? 3.How often is the data updated, is it current? 4.Who should get this information? 5.Is this Information good or bad? 6.What should users do with this information? ACTION!
Page 10 Business Requirements: Statutory, Operational Reports –Monthly, quarterly, vs. budget, benchmarks… –View, print, archive,… –Secure delivery with low administration Exception Alerts –Nearing budget, out of stock, overdue.. –Get further info (guided/root cause analysis), take action,… Analytical Views –Transform data to optimize analysis –Interactive analysis (slice & dice), find trends, find opportunities Work Lists / workflow –Filtered lists of records that need your attention –Knowledge capture
Page 11 Business Intelligence – Hierarchy of Needs Operating: Departmental Metrics, Spreadsheets, Functional Driven, Tools based approach Optimizing: Closed loop processes, business planning, application integration, collaboration, continuous improvementInnovating: Performance culture, Tiered objectives, Senior executive driven John Hagerty, AMR Research: Performance Management Maturity ModelIntegrating: Executive/Manager Accountability, Bottom Line Performance, Integrated Metrics

Page 18 EPM/BI – Benefits Makes things happen faster. Helps instill discipline, predictability, and certainty into business processes. Ensures the right people are always aware of the right information at the right time – and take action! Relieves people from having to monitor information manually. Makes multiple applications and data sources work as one. –Knowledge capture around roles –Speeds learning
Page 24 What are the barriers to a successful BI implementation? Core systems take precedence (e.g. go-live) Executive support & funding No champion, ongoing EPM ownership Unclear business model / metrics Operational issues push to back burner Data access challenges Lack of understanding of value Unfamiliarity with tools, training skills Organizational resistance to change Expectations of cost and development effort
Page 25 Goals and Methodology Companies struggle to define goals for business intelligence –How should you be performing as an organization? –What are the best practices that will get you there?
Page 26 Struggling to assemble the right ingredients to deliver cost-effective BI results –Outside consulting –BI tools –Enterprise application integration –Report creation –Training –Role-based personalization –Etc…. If You’re Missing the Yeast, You Can’t Bake Bread
Page 27 Irrelevance How to do irrelevant BI: –Ask questions that can’t be answered. –Provide intelligence based on bad data. –Overwhelm users with “FYI” data. –Take data out of context so it doesn’t make sense.
Page 28 Seven ‘Fatal Flaws’ of CPM/BI “If we build it, they will come” “Managers need to work the numbers” “We don’t have a data quality problem” “Our applications vendor will deliver the best solution” “We can get it right the first time” “We can outsource BI/CPM” “Just give me a dashboard” Gartner June, 2005 Bill Hostmann, Frank Buytendijk, Ted Friedman

Page 40 Keys to successful EPM Implementations Sponsorship at C-level –Visioning with CFO and operational VPs –Inclusion of multiple functional areas –Peer success / case studies (been done before) Momentum –Need to attack significant pain point for pilot –Deliver value at every phase Change management strategies –Understanding of cultural barriers –Identifying and empowering champions
Page 41 Change Management Strategy Understand and plan for it What is the history of the organization? –Steady vs. Dynamic change –Average tenure –Known silos Are any areas anticipating cuts? Number of changes planned? Size of changes planned? Communication plan, rumor control

Page 47 Future of BI Today Reactive, historical facts are gathered Time lagged, Analysis happens after the fact Elitist, power users only Disparate, departmental solutions Tomorrow Predictive, forward planning and modeling Near-Time / Real-Time - alerts trigger analysis during events Ubiquitous, users throughout org. Unified, integrated BI platforms, standards
Page 48 In the future BI will: Go beyond your organization: e.g. supplier’s inventory of parts has dropped below safety stock level And will have business logic: Risk of part shortage on production quantified And be able to respond proactively: Automatically order from alternate supplier
