Interview with Ajay Ohri

Analytics are an important tool for cutting costs and improving efficiency. Optimization techniques and predictive models can anticipate market shifts, enable companies to move quickly to slash costs and eliminate waste. But there are other reasons analytics are more important than ever:

  • Manage risk. More precise metrics and risk management models will enable managers to make better decisions, reduce risk and monitor changing business conditions more effectively.
  • Know what is really working. Rigorous testing and monitoring of metrics can establish whether your actions are really making desired changes in your business or not.
  • Leverage existing investments (in IT and information) to get more insight, faster execution, and more business value in business processes.
  • Invest to emerge stronger as business conditions improve. High performers take advantage of downturns to retool, gain insights into new market dynamics and invest so that they are prepared for the upturn. Analytics give executives insight into the dynamics of their business and how shifts influence business performance.
  • Identify and seize new opportunities for competitive advantage and differentiation.
