Next quarter is always on the way. So it’s a good time to ask questions and examine your data. Are sales or product performance in a slump? You may be looking for business strategies to pick up next quarter’s pace. Or maybe things are going well and you want to maintain steady growth. Either way, you can use real time analytics to gather data that can help transform your next quarter.

Real time analytics are powerful tools that not only gather live data but turn it into useful information. They offer a picture of what’s happening across your business or customer base so you can react to change or proactively create progress. Next quarter, draw upon a history of insights to help you plan your strategy.

Real time analytics foster a more data-driven culture that can help make next quarter more successful. Here’s how they can help you plan for your company’s future and make business goals a reality.

Real Time Analytics Unlock a Host of Opportunities

Real time analytics draws the information you need from your data. It starts the moment data is acquired, creating intelligence that’s nearly immediate. That helps minimize risk and downtime, while speeding decisioning and reporting.

Real time analytics unlock opportunities and supports a variety of technologies and industries, including:

  • Retail—Leverage live information about customers to raise customer satisfaction levels
  • IT—Analytics are used to enhance hardware and lower latency in memory chip architecture.
  • Applied Science—Predictions and models based on complex data with many variables, such as in hurricane forecasting.

Your organization will have unique uses for real time analytics.

How to Transform Next Quarter and Beyond

Real time analytics can align your organization’s people, processes and technology through business intelligence. Your organization can outline a targeted goal, devise a strategy for getting there, and unite everyone to achieve it. Analytics-generated intelligence can help guide you along the way.

When using real time analytics to transform your company’s future, enact a governance process with well-defined accountability. This will help you to prioritize and manage data investments. You can refine your application and process architectures to adapt as needed and conditions change. There are self-serve analytics tools and powerful structured analytics solutions to help you do it all.

If you’re having trouble getting your system to generate the intelligence you need or are unsure of how to action those insights, ask an analytics expert for help. With many insights comes a lot of value—but only if you know how to apply them.

If you find future-quarter planning hard, it may be time to start using real time analytics. Drawing conclusions from data gathered in the present and in the past will give you a good idea of what the future will look like.
