At BizCubed, we have been working with our
customers on automating the manual analytics activities that their business analysts conduct. A surprisingly high percentage of analytics
that drive our organisations come out of spreadsheets. And I am talking about modern organisations
… large organisations … market leaders in their respective fields. And these spreadsheets that drive the analytics
often involve manual steps that take hours and hours to produce. We worked with one such organisation recently.
They too were pouring hours of business analyst time, crunching numbers manually, importing
data to excel, running manual macros in excel, and running complex formulas that were causing
their computers to be frozen for hours. We changed how they approached analytics.
We automated data imports. We removed the manual macros and we ran processes that took
hours in excel to processes that were complete before they even needed to look at the information. The lead executive we worked with described
what we achieved together as moving his analysts from “turning the handle” to actually providing
insightful analysis that improved the business. When we help organisations, we focus on a
couple of key activities. We make small incremental changes that drive innovation and value immediately.
We train, and we enable. We automate and engineer the underlying data processes so information
is business ready immediately. We focus on ensuring success. The benefits our approach provides are: faster
analytics outcomes, more time spent on evaluating the information and providing business enhancing
insight and we decrease reliance on key analysts and remove single points of failure. Are you number crunching manually? Are spreadsheets
driving your analytics? Is it time to automate? Is it time to innovate? Is it time to revolutionise
your analytics play? At BizCubed, we are helping organisations
move their analytics play out of manual, laborious spreadsheet work to cutting edge automated
analytics. Contact us. Let’s discuss how we can lift your analytics game.
